Lonny Magazine

I know I have expressed my Dad's wish for me to start reading the New York Times, and now I officially think I should too.  This is the second time this week my Dad has told me about interesting articles having to do with my profession and one of my most prized possessions, my MacBook Pro. 

It's kind of funny when your Dad informs you about a new online Interior Design magazine called Lonny. At least he found out about it in the New York Times and not from some sort of Interior Design source I should be reading. Of course I checked it out. The concept is genius. I flipped through a few pages and subscribed immediately.  I can't wait to start reading it. 

The New York Times article is called: For Interior Designers, D.I.Y. Philosophy Extends to Web Magazine. I would like to thank these two below for being the brains behind this great online magazine.  Michelle Adams is a former marketing director for Domino Magazine  (that was a sad sad day) and Patrick Cline is a photographer and photo retoucher. 

I know many people love collecting magazines. I would if I had the space. But I don't, so I can't. I don't even have a closet more or less room to store months of magazine subscriptions. 
 An online magazine is perfect for someone like me. I wish all of the magazines were online like Lonny. It would make my life so much easier. 

Also, I don't know if it was because I was born within the booming age of technology, but I would prefer to do everything on the internet rather than call or visit. Yes, it could also be called laziness but I believe it has to do with the era I was born in. I am one of those technology nerds. Now do you see why I have such a strong appeal to Lonny

The magazine that caters to the "do it yourself-ers" released their first issue in October of last year. They also keep an archive of all past issues on their website. 

On their website they also have a decorate section which shows room by room ideas.

It is really easy to subscribe to Lonny. All you have to do is visit their website, click the subscribe tab and fill out these three easy questions. 

Please check out Lonny and let's help this genius idea blossom and grow. Maybe other magazines will follow in it's footsteps.
