Rue Magazine


Creepy Chic

In honor of Halloween (which is only a couple of days away... How did it get here so fast!?), we've put together a small collection of Creepy Chic rooms, decorated with unconventional or just downright creepy art and accessories.

Skulls on the wall? Creepy art over the bed? (Maybe in the living room, yeah, but right over your head as you sleep at night? A little scary!) These designers know just how to incorporate these into a livable space without seeming terribly frightening! (Photos collected from Lonny and Rue)

A skull sits right there on the table between those two chairs. This family must not have any kids!
Not only does this artwork have a slightly scary flair to it, but that hand on the cocktail table could really creep a girl out!
Such a beautiful, serene room. Then you notice the eyeball in the piece of art on the right! Wow...
Skulls in the bookshelf
Skulls on the wall... This skull is actually pretty cool and funky!
Try falling asleep at night with this crazy lady hanging over your head.... NOOO THANK YOU!

Got some other good photos we could add to our collection? Post them on our Facebook wall and you just might win a fun prize! We wish you a Creepy Chic Halloween!! Be careful out there this weekend!

Shelf Help

Let's face it. We could all use a little help when arranging our bookshelves. Books, trinkets, pieces of art, sculptures, pottery, etc.... How can you make it all work? We searched the pages of some of our favorite reads to bring you a little "shelf help!"

All of these photos came from Rue, Lonny, and the Domino book. We love how these designers have used outside-the-box ideas to make things like butterfly collections and big boxes fit into the scheme! The designers at SummerHouse are all PROS at bookshelf arrangement, so if you need help, you know who to call! :)

Make Your Bed!

Happy Spring

With Spring in full force, and with the weather at such a nice temperature, we thought we'd share a picture of a beautiful outdoor dining table-- all set for lunch! Look how cute the menus are! There is so much to love about this tablescape.  What is your favorite thing about this photo?

Have any of you heard of Rue Magazine?  We had not until yesterday but... WOW... We were left completely speechless! Rue Magazine ( is an online magazine, very similar to our beloved LonnyMag (  It is paperless so it can be thumbed through with the click of a mouse, without having to take up any room on your counter! Rue is a little different from Lonny in that it seems to have more dark European insiriation mixed in.  It is all very beautiful and outside the box!  Here are a few of their many beautiful pages. What do you think?

Rue is only in its second issue, so we eagerly anticipate their coming issues!
