I haven’t been disappointed in an issue of Rue since its debut, and this May/June issue is certainly no exception. I was especially grateful to discover the feature on Seattle’s interior designer Monika Claassen. Her home is equal parts drop dead gorgeous and down right liveable. I was so happy to find out hat she has a blog, Splendid Willow, so that I can keep tuned into this tastemaker’s tips and finds. Please, take some time to read Rue this month, and pay a visit to Monika Claassen’s beautiful site and be inspired!
