Press: Rue Magazine’s Top 7 Designers to Watch in 2014

Caitlin Flemming Design | Photos by Michelle Drewes for Rue MagazineToday I’m honored to be featured in Rue Magazine’s 3rd anniversary issue! When they contacted me to be part of their top seven designers to watch in 2014 I was elated, giddy and completely humbled. This issue is not to be missed – it’s filled with market pages that will have you pulling out your wallet (be warned!) and gorgeous homes that will make you want to redecorate. I’ve followed the journeys of each of the seven designers they named and I’m honored to be alongside them – each with a different aesthetic, so there is something for everyone. Pop over to tour my entire clients home and to page through the other talented designers I sit beside.

A HUGE thank you to the Rue Magazine team for having me in this issue – it’s really such an honor!

Project Reveal: Jordan Park Home

Today I was thrilled to have the chance to finally share one of my latest projects that I’ve been working on. This two bedroom Edwardian condo was dream project – because my client was my mom. To some it may feel like a daunting task, but since our aesthetics and styles are incredibly similar it didn’t feel like work. Though we still plan to update the kitchen and bathroom, we made minor renovations prior to decorating – we painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s Mountain Peak White (the perfect white with no yellow hues) and installed beautiful French chandeliers in every room. After that was complete the fun part began – placing and buying the furniture and smalls for each room.

I hope you enjoyed this peak into my project – pop over to Rue Magazine to see the entire feature and get sources for items!

Never Before Seen Images: Vicente Wolf

When the Rue team received the (much anticipated) email from Jamie Beck with ALL of the images from the Vicente Wolf photo shoot, I gasped for air. As I scrolled through each and every photo all I could think about was “how the heck are we going to choose which images to use? They’re all amazing!” I knew all along that they were going to be breathtaking, but they were beyond what I expected.

Here are a few never before seen images from the shoot that were taken inside Vicente’s home. His aesthetic is jaw-dropping and for a girl that loves blue – this space is so inspiring!

New York: Launch Party + What’s New What’s Next Event

Talk about a magical night. I’ve never in my life felt more proud, loved and honored to be part of such an amazing team. Everyone that came to celebrate with us, welcomed us with open arms and were so supportive about our leap into the publishing world – it felt so good. I know you’ve seen countless blog posts about Rue Magazine’s launch party (like here, here and here) but I just had to share one of my favorite photos from the night – it’s of the team before the party got hopping.

Last Wednesday Rue was honored to be part of New York Design Center’s – What’s New What’s Next event. Rue’s amazing food columnist, Marissa Lippert, put together a mouth watering cooking demo with seasonal apple dishes – I can’t even pick a favorite, they were all delicious. You can find the recipes in the premiere issue of Rue (page 62).

A huge thank you needs to go out to Jacqueline of Merci New York and Kathleen of Kat Flower for the beautiful tabletop display (it’s my fall dinner party inspiration) and the gorgeous flower arrangements – we couldn’t have done it without you ladies.

After a wonderful afternoon in the InHouse showroom, we headed up to the John Saladino showroom where Rue Magazine gave a wonderful toast to the end of a wonderful What’s New What’s Next event and the launch of Rue. It was fun catching up with new and old friends – I couldn’t think of a better way to end a eventful trip to NYC.

If you want to find out more about the New York trip, Crystal covered the entire week. Plus, you’ll get to see a lovely picture of me waving goodbye to her at 3am as Anne and I get into our black town car.

A big thank you goes out to the New York Design Center for welcoming the Rue team with open arms. I’ve never met such an amazing group of ladies. You made our launch party become a reality and it was truly amazing!

The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For . . .

After months and months of photo shoots, emails, meetings, designing and editing (and more editing) – I’m jumping up and down with excitement that I finally get to present to you the premiere issue of Rue. It’s been a labor of love, our pride and joy and we worked our tushies off to get the best of the best into this first issue. I hope you devour each and every page we’ve put together.

Just have to say a few words . . .

To my team, each and every one of you has been amazing throughout this endeavor. We’re each others cheerleaders, supporters and most of all we’ve formed a bond faster than any other group I’ve worked with. We conquered our dreams and turned them into reality. Love you guys!

To my readers, thank you for being there cheering all of us on. You are the reason we keep going and going and going. Staying up all night to bring you this issue, all I could think about was all of you waiting with baited breath for the premiere issue. Here it is luvies – pull up a chair, get a glass of tea or wine and stay for awhile.

To my husband, what can I say – you are my rock. You’ve put up with my late nights, endless hours on the computer, an iPhone that doesn’t leave my hand and meals that suddenly went to strictly quesadillas. You support every single dream I have and were by my side this entire way. I love you honey!

To my family and friends, I promise that I will now return all of your phone calls, I’ll be able to go out to dinners, and be at every softball game – that is until we start issue two. Just kidding. Thank you for being there for me every step of the way. I think some of you thought I was crazy – day job, blog, and launching a magazine, but one of my dreams has come true. All of your texts, voicemails, and emails throughout these past few weeks have meant the world to me and kept me going. xo

All of you are the best! I hope you have as much fun pouring over the pages of Rue as we did creating this premiere issue. Enjoy!

xoxo, Caitlin
