At Home with Tone On Tone

As I’ve said many times before, one of the best parts about this blogging adventure is meeting new people. Loi Thai and his partner, Tom Troeschel, are some of those people. They have joined us for some fun parties here in Baltimore and have become wonderful friends over the past few years.

Loi and Tom also own the gorgeous store, Tone on Tone, in Bethesda, Maryland and writes the blog of the same name. He’s also got a beautiful instagram account with something like 31,000 followers (gawd, now I am depressed!).

And, if that’s not enough, their beautiful house is featured in the February issue of Martha Stewart!image

His house is the epitome of cool, calm and collected, as is Loi himself. Spare, clean, white and bright are some other words I’d use to describe his design aesthetic.image

Here’s Loi with Baltimore-based photographer, Helen Norman, who did the photography, and Lorna Aragon, editor for MS Magazine. I was actually up at Helen’s Star Bright Farm, just before Christmas.image

This is all just a sneak peek, but you must go pick up the magazine and see how gorgeous it all is and then go visit his blog.image

Tell Loi I sent you!

  6. The magazine contractually "rents" MS's personal residences when a photo shoot is conducted-- from what I have read. That is --her houses. I do not suppose that MSLO pays private home owners to stage a magazine spread in their house. In this situation it would be considered free publicity for your talented friend but then perhaps they charged him for the "advertising" we will never know. Get it in writing. business is business.

  7. After reading Loi's post I had to run out to buy it on Monday. He has such a sense for that which is aesthetically pleasing and yet never overdone.

  8. How do you achieve such eye pleasing results with so few things?! Genius!
