A couple of weeks ago, as I was on a quick grocery shopping excursion one afternoon, I moseyed over to the magazine section. I happened upon a publication I had never seen before entitled 'Milieu." Have you heard of it before? It is the brainchild of Houston-based interior designer Pamela Pierce. It's a fairly new publication; the first issue was published in Fall of 2013. I was immediately drawn in to the glossy pages, just as I am with other magazines such as Luxe, House Beautiful, Dwell, and Veranda, all of which to I subscribe or read intermittently. What I found interesting about this particular magazine was that although it is a fairly new publication, it is definitely comparable to any of the aforementioned, and has a way of interjecting tidbits of fashion along with fabulous décor.
The magazine is chock-full of beautiful photographs featuring elegant and art-infused traditional and transitional spaces, which speaks directly to not only my design aesthetic, but to my heart as well! Even the ads are beautiful; rich antiques, fabulous European reproductions, gorgeous textiles, sprinkled with a smattering of wonderful modern finds. Here are a few of my favorites from the Winter 2015 issue. To view these images via their website, you must be a subscriber, but it is well worth it! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
I am obsessed with this rustic kitchen! A pair of antique Louis XV doors (c. 1760) on the pantry,
How beautiful is the light in this space!? I love the casualness of the linen chairs combined with upscale Louis XVI-style chairs.
The same house also features a beautiful solarium in which an eighteenth-century Italian settee combines sublimely with a pair of Louis XV chandeliers.
Here are a few sites I found by perusing the issue:
I love this space! Chateau Domingue Antiques.
Fabulous garden pots cast from estate originals,
This is just lovely. Joyce Horn Antiques.
I hope you are finally thawing out, and if not, please stay warm!
