We were inspired by their touches and always perfect attention to detail.... Yes, those are cowboy boots.
We spent time with the editors of Southern Living and Coastal Living and loved hearing about their plans and directions for the magazines that influence so much of what we do. Jessica Thuston, homes editor of Southern Living and Anotonia van der Meer, Editor and Chief of Coastal Living gave us lots of insight into how to grace their pages with our spaces.
Sid Evans (previously of Garden and Gun) is the new editor in chief at Southern Living. His vision for this magazine epitomizes all things Southern and hanging out with Sid was definitely a highlight. The men and women that put these publications together work tirelessly to deliver each and every month to their readers and we are thankful that they do!
One of the best parts of the conference was collaborating with some of the amazing designers that are part of this network. There are currently 31 from all over the country and I am so honored to be one of them. Designers include so many that I have admired for so long. Each and everyone inspires me and have so much to contribute to this amazing network. On the list include Tobi Fairley, Paige Schnell, Meg Braff, Margaret Kirkland, Julie Holloway... this list goes on with such great talent. Pinch me! Thank you Southern Living for an amazing trip!
