Veranda's 5 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs in November 2016

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 3, 2016 9:41:09 PM

My picks for the five best rooms with designer rugs in Veranda's November 2016 issue include Ann and Gordon Getty's Chinoiserie themed dining room and their Russian Ballet inspired music room in their Pacific Palisades, San Francisco mansion. I was exhilarated by Richard Hallberg's fresh take on a mountain retreat in Aspen and Anthony Baratta's Utah very different view of a ski lodge which he infused with bold quilt and plaid patterns. Finally we remember Atlanta Garden legend Ryan Gainey and his take on Napoleonic style. I hope you enjoy the magnificent variety.

Best of July-August 2015 Veranda: 7 Rooms with Decorative Rugs

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Aug 3, 2015 3:00:00 AM

The July-August 2015 Veranda's 7 best rooms with decorative rugs are dedicated to illustrating how to create relaxed and elegant interiors by mixing the old and the new, juxtaposing the classic and the contemporary, creating a contrast between rustic and refined and between matte and smooth. The 7 rooms show how the same design principles hold true for a seaside home and a formal mansion.

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.
