I had never read Veranda before, but back in April of this year when I heard that Dara Caponigro had just been appointed Editor in Chief, I was intrigued. Dara was a founding editor of Domino (yes, I STILL miss it!...how about you?), where she was style director for 5 years and before that she spent 12 years at House Beautiful (also a fave). As if I needed more reason to become a reader, one of my dearest friends - Jennifer Levene Bruno - was recently appointed Publisher. I'm so proud of her!! Needless to say, I didn't need much more incentive to send in my subscription card and I was so excited when my first issue arrived. And it's good, guys! I look forward to seeing what the amazing team of Dara & Jennifer do with this title in the coming months & years.
Here's some pretty and inspiring design images from Veranda.com. As usual, the majority of my choices are motivated by the lovely textiles! Enjoy!
