best of the magazines- part two

welcome to part two of "best of the magazines." in case you missed it, here is part one, where you can catch me rambling about the library again.

kudos to you, architectural digest, because you're the sole subject of part two. yes, there was so much good stuff in the march issue of AD that it warrants its own post. and, for reasons i can only assume are brilliant, they do not feature all of the articles from this issue on their website, meaning i had to dredge the internet to bring you some of the photos below, and when that failed, i snapped the actual pages with my phone. do i feel guilty? yes. no. because i am telling you: go check out the issue. consider this a trailer. the whole thing is a wonderful read and you will not be disappointed.

 architectural digest, march 2014
"AD visits..." issue

first up, the intoxicatingly lovely home of jeff klein and john goldwyn, featured in the article, "frames of reference."

the light-filled living room stays true to the home's 1950's roots, while being thoroughly modern and relaxed.

this galley kitchen is brilliant, with black doors striking a contrast against the white cabinets.

 more walls of windows and glossy floors in the dining area.

providing the view: lush gardens and a rectangular pool, complete with outdoor shower.

{update: i noticed today that designer paloma contreras was equally enamored with this home. her insightful commentary is worth a read. check out the article at la dolce vita.}

at the back of the magazine, from jane fonda's forked lightning ranch in new mexico, this master bathroom stood out:

can you imagine soaking in this tub, taking in those views and enjoying the fireplace? wow.

and lastly, i already mentioned how in love i am with sandy gallin, thanks to this issue of AD. here is more of his work that they featured in the article, "access hollywood."

this living room is from the home of deborah and allen grubman.

from sandy gallin's former bridgehampton, new york, estate:

 favorite things in this family room: wall of french doors and extra-wide plank glossy floors.

 i could not find any picture to do this kitchen justice. notice the wall of stacked wood at the back, and his signature brown and white contrast.

 another bedroom with a beamed ceiling, fireplace and fluffy bed.

i'm not usually a fan of north american homes trying to look like tuscany, but this really evokes the spirit, and not at all in a cheesy way.

stacked stone retaining wall and vine-covered pergola

the bridgehampton estate photos are via corcoran group real estate and luxist. for more, head to the library (or the newstand) and grab the march AD .  like i said, worth it.
