Jennifer Connelly in Vogue

Jennifer Connelly in the November issue of Vogue. The cover does not amaze me, but she is stunning and I love the photography.

A Room Of My Own

I'm rearranging my room at the moment so I've been looking for some inspiration from magazines like Teen Vogue (the 'A Room Of My Own' at the last page in each issue, and their room makeovers), and also Harper's Bazaar ('A Fashionable Life' where famous people let us see their fashionable homes). I've scanned in some of my favourite rooms and I'll post it here for some inspiration.
Here's Aerin Lauder in Harper's Bazaar June 07

The flowers bring some life into the room - they're always classic.

I love the Z desk!

The modern mirror table mixes perfectly with the vintage wallpaper.

Here are the rooms from Teen Vogue

This closet is amazing. I would love to have this bright and accessable walk-in closet!

Perfect for small spaces.

I love a big and comfy bed.

Mirrors are great for making a room look bigger.

Magazine pages and personal photos are perfect for decorating walls.

I would never have thought that a tree could look good in a bedroom. I love the mirrors and the see-through chair.

I'm thinking about getting a white closet that has a bit of a vintage flair, and either a glass/mirror table or something like that in the photo above. Then, of course, I'll decorate with beautiful mirrors, (scented) candles and flowers.

Good Thing Come In Small Packages

As a celebration of their 140th anniversary, Harper’s Bazaar publish a rather different editorial, featuring smaller editions of top designers.
The 10-page spread, photographed by Peter Lindbergh, features the Class of 2007, with children dressed up as designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Alber Elbaz, Donatella Versace, John Galliano, Miuccia Prada, Olivier Theyskens and Stella McCartney, standing next to model Chanel Iman in an outfit from each designer.
According to Glenda Bailey, editor in chief of the magazine, “Even though these designers are monumental talents, good things come in small sizes.”
I love Harper's Bazaar's creative ideas, like the Simpson spread, how amazing was that?
