i’m beyond loving designer caroline z. hurley’s home featured in the latest edition of rue mag.  i’ve long been crushing on caroline z. hurley’s work and now i’m head over heels for her home.


that couch is like my dream as far as couches are concerned.  big.  squishy.  pillowy.

this 3rd small space edition by rue and it is a gem of ideas for small spaces.  you can read the full issue here.
