In the new magazine High Gloss there was this image:

This is somewhat similar to my bedroom (When I finally finish, and share photos, I don’t want you all to judge it against this one, but in my mind there are some similarities.  ).  I NEED the quilt at the foot of the bed.  Anyone know where it comes from?  I looked around a bit on the high gloss website and didn’t see a resource.  I love some resource help for this one!

While I am talking about the new online shelter mags, I have a few comments.  1) I love the idea, I am much more likely to read it online than I will if it comes in the mail as evidenced by the dozens of unread Verandas, House Beautifuls and InStyles littering my house, 2) I don’t generally cover them here on my blog, because I feel like it is just regurgitating and re-covering something that is covered on bunches of other blogs (I suspect there are bloggers that stay up incessantly refreshing the website the night a new issue goes live just so they can be the first to review it, I am just not up to that) and finally 4) I can’t wait for them all to develop a more specific perspective.  It seems like Lonny, Rue, Anthology, and High Gloss (I have forgotten a few, surely) all have a very similar look, basically indecipherable from one another.  I am sure it takes a while to create a voice, look and clear point of view.  No criticism here, just looking forward to seeing how they evolve.


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
