Due to the current global COVID-19 situation (and for the well-being of our team), we have temporarily closed our Austin, TX office – We will be able to support you while we work remotely during normal office hours. Alternatively, place your orders directly online at SeasonalLiving.com. We will be reviewing this situation week to week. Thank you for your patience.

Exciting News! The New Look and Expansion of Seasonal Living Magazine!

Seasonal Living Magazine


Before we introduce you to the new look and expanded WINTER issue of Seasonal Living Magazine, we want to sincerely thank each one of you.

To all of you who have subscribed to it, or who have taken a moment to send us or share with us in person encouraging words of support, we thank you. To all of you who have given us your feedback about what we could be doing differently or better, we thank you.

To the major trade publication, Business of Home, ( a must read for every designer and design focused business) who gave Seasonal Living Magazine a beautiful mention in this article, and included the image below, of 5 of the 7 past covers, we thank you.

To the interior designers whose beautiful work has graced our pages so far: Washington, DC based Mary Douglas Drysdale, Pensacola, FL based Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Interiors, Los Angeles based Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design, Houston based Lynn Yellen of Ladco Resort Design Group,  St. Barth based Elisa Bally of Elisa Bally, Austin and San Miguel de Allende based Rachel Horn of Rachel Horn Interiors, Austin, TX based Christine Turknett of Breathe Design Studio, Savannah, GA based Joel and Erika Snayd of Rethink Design Studio, and to Houston, TX based landscape artist/designer, Blair Michener of Up-Country, we thank you for the opportunity to publish your work.

Our readers have loved being inspired by the beauty you create and we invite them to click through to the links above to see your websites, if any of them have a need to hire a designer in your area.

With this expanded edition, we are excited to be able to publish the work of even more interior designers, and we hope you enjoy the work of Los Angeles based Laura Schwartz-Muller of Four Point Design Build, Boise, ID based Emily Williams Clark of Clark And Co Homes, Fayetteville, NC based Jana Donohoe of Jana Donohoe Designs and Des Moines, IO based Jillian Lare to be found in the WINTER WHITES cover story in the design section.

Learn what color temperature your LED lights should be… and see how each of these talented interior designers layered neutrals and winter whites to add richness, warmth, depth and a little sparkle, with lighting, to the stunning interiors they’ve create for their clients.

We have also expanded the sections on food and recipes. Who is ready for a cup of delicious HAUTE CHOCOLATE while reading the rest of this post? See how to make it, by clicking here!

We’ve added a new section on wellness, too, as you’ve told us this topic is important to you. Don’t miss our first guest contributor article, on biophilia, by New York City based wellness expert and interior designer, Laurence Carr. Read it now, here.

In addition, we’ve added more carefully curated shopping pages to make it easy for you to #shoptthemagazine and save time. See more below!

We will now be producing the magazine quarterly in alignment with the seasons, WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL, so expect to see our SPRING issue out the first week in March, which will also be in print, just in time for those who might be visiting us in our new INTERHALL end cap space at High Point Market!

Lastly, we’d like to give an end of year shout out and thank you to the team responsible for the design and writing of Seasonal Living Magazine for us, Leslie Carothers, CEO of Savour Partnership, and her Creative Director, Sam Henderson, who also creates and photographs all of the food and recipes in the magazine. Thank you, Leslie and Sam. You two have become an integral part of our team, and we are appreciative.

But it is you, our readers/subscribers and customers, whom we are most grateful for as we close out this decade. We could not continue to grow the magazine without your patronage and support, and we are deeply grateful.

We invite you to enjoy the rest of this post, and, when you’re done reading the WINTER issue, we’d love to have your feedback at editor@seasonalliving.com.
