Lonny loves Hinkley!

We couldn’t be more thrilled for our client Hinkley Lighting on their wonderful feature in the May/June issue of Lonny Magazine.
Launched in October 2009, Lonny is a bi-monthly online magazine that focuses on lifestyle and home decor.

The article primarily features advice on stylish, well-executed outdoor landscape lighting, but also showcases some of the exquisite lifestyle photography that we have concepted and styled along with the team at Hinkley.

Congrats on the great press for a local design and manufacturing company out of Northeast Ohio.

Family Circle Magazine

A few months ago when Charity’s home was featured on Design Sponge her email inbox was filled with requests about design, home interiors, styling; it was all very exciting.

One of the requests that stood out was a note from one of the editors at Family Circle Magazine about contributing ideas for an upcoming story, “50 Easy Decorating Ideas for under $50.” One morning over a few cups of coffee the team brainstormed every idea from interior painting techniques to more indie-crafty home decor solutions, it was a unique brainstorm to say the least.

Flash forward to the April issue of Family Circle Magazine and our suggestion of spray painting your old toys (plastic dinosaurs to be specific) with high-gloss white paint and using them as small additions to any table scape or room decor made it’s way onto the newsstand. Since we have such a passion for styling and interior space design, we were thrilled!

The article also featured other designs such as Jonathan Adler, John Derian & Nate Berkus. To read the entire piece visit their website at
