I am absolutely, positively in LOVE with the cover of the March 2010 Elle Decor. I mean really, isn’t it a dream?! The blue isn’t far off from the hue I selected for my very first apartment and the collage of artwork is absolute perfection. I just adore the ticking stripe on the settee across from the tufted chair back and of course, the lavender ikat-esque throw pillow… Okay, so I want it all. My old boss and mentor, Shaun Jackson (an Elle Decor cover veteran), once told me the best way to truly assess a magazine layout was to take your finger and cover up the flowers. If the room still looks striking minus the burst of fresh blooms then you’ve got yourself a winner. Clearly, this room (designed by Nate Berkus and Anne Coyle) stands alone, therefore passing the test. It hits newsstands on February 9th—until then, try your best not to drool.
