On March 21st, I was introduced to a new q-tee, Est Webzine by Apartment Therapy, it was love at first sight! I know, I know, I fall in love quite often lmao. Well, it's a week later and we finally had our first date. I am sooooooo smitten. Here's a little somethin' somethin' about my new love straight off of their website:
“The title ‘est’ has many positive connotations. Finest, greatest, nicest, loveliest, sexiest...All the things we want Est Magazine to be.”
Est offers its time poor & inspiration starved readers a new age glossy magazine. Est is all about inspiration, giving readers a contemporary interactive resource and providing a platform to showcase the very best in the world of design.
Est is relaxed and stylish, is not self conscious and does not take itself too seriously.
Est loves the sun but appreciates the seasons.
Est loves looking to the past but also likes shiny and new - this is what gives Est an Australian twist.
Est is the brain child of Sian MacPherson Editor in Chief & Lynda Evans Creative Director
who have sourced the creative talents of photographers, designers, stylists, writers and trend
spotters from around the globe."
I am especially impressed with, Est, because there are two feature stories geared towards, "Styling", and DUH this blog is all about, "Styling". Which makes us a definite match! Right? Of course these features are, "Stylishly Styled", so I just had to share!
The first article discusses; Regardless of where you reside or how many times you may relocate, home is where the heart is, so you should always personalize it with items that are meaningful and hold memories. Basically, the most important element of styling your home, is surrounding yourself with things you love!
I really LOOOVE the vibrant props and creative details used in this photo shoot. The article is also styled by one of my fave stylist and blogger, Deb McLean and photographed by Colin Doswell of Doswell & McLean. There is also a styling tip, which also served as an affirmation for living [for me, at least] on each page.
Don't over think it - just do it...
A place to hide away...
Blurring of line between inside and out...
Collecting memories not just designer furniture...
Mixing it up - patterns, textures, finishes, materials...
Embrace imperfection...Search for peace.
