Posted by Abid Ilahi on Mar 12, 2014 9:50:00 PM

When I began looking for the 10 best Martha's Vineyard interiors to illustrate how top designers use blue rugs to elevate the chic factor in a seaside space, I was surprised at how difficult it was to find them. After the first three gorgeous rooms by Victoria Hagan, I had to look in new places to find the remaining. As it turned out, this was a good thing as it led me to discovering two new interior designers who have done great work on Martha's Vineyard. They are Gil Walsh and Gauthier-Stacy. I hope you will enjoy the variety and the fresh perspective they bring.

Best of March 2014 Design Magazines: 19 Rooms with Decorative Rugs

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Mar 4, 2014 9:50:00 PM

The unrelenting fury of winter has postponed thoughts of spring for those of us who live in the north. So it is especially encouraging to see that the March 2014 issues of major interior design magazines have not given up hope and are featuring more rooms with sunny colors. It is also nice to see Veranda Magazine revive from its recent decline. But other publications are not doing as well. Lonny Magazine had emerged from nowhere to promise a new answer to the digital conundrum, but they have had to cut back their publishing frequency. Elle Decor, Traditional Home and House Beautiful have fewer new and exciting rooms. But don't worry, I have compensated by extending coverage to newer more exciting magazines such as Luxe, Florida Design, New York Cottage and Gardens and Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. I hope you will find a stimulating variety in these 19 best interiors with decorative rugs from the March 2014 issues of the best interior design magazines.
