The second edition of RUE, a free online design magazine, is (has been, really) out. If you like to unwind by flipping through design/home decor magazines (like I sometimes do), this is a great way to do it. It's free and green.
Here are a few images that I thought inspiring and lovely:
This would make for a pretty centerpiece in either an apothecary jar or glass vase.
I love the big bowl of nuts and dark, cozy colors.
The simple elegance of this office would be so soothing to work in. (But I bet it doesn't have the calming sound of my washer and dryer in the background....poor thing). :)
This could be achieved so easily with a bookshelf from ikea. I love this for a playroom.
Take some time out for yourself soon. Grab a cup of coffee, flip through RUE and forget about all you have to do. Make it a gift to yourself and enjoy.
