No matter how easy Apple makes it for me to keep current, nothing gives me more pleasure than holding, reading, and tearing pages from a great magazine. This weekend, I carried a stack around and enjoyed a variety of topics from Bob “so deep” Dylan to Hector “Macho” Camacho (poor guy) and his son Machito.  The most pleasant visually, by far, was Pamela Pierce’s 1st edition of Milieu. The collaborative effort to get this new shelter magazine off the ground, and the fortitude of Ms. Pierce to lead the charge, is tremendously impressive. The editorial is excellent with such a deep respect for the Interior Design industry as a whole. If you haven’t seen it yet, click on the link below. My subscription card has been mailed!  Well done, Milieu! 
In other news, Shane is finding some fantastic things in France this week. I forgot how much fun it is to be on the receiving end of photos. He continues to astonish me – barely ever picks up a design magazine and certainly doesn’t create pin-boards. Somehow, he just innately knows how to buy without agenda or influence and nails it nearly every time. Attaching some of his recent acquisitions below, along with beautiful design! Warm Regards, Kristen P.S.  We will be unloading our latest container on Monday!
