real living

As founding editor-in-chief of monthly homes and lifestyle magazine real living we packed it with inspiration, energy and creative interiors. Covers had immediate visual impact and grabbed attention on the stands with its unique fashion forward look.

It had and still has to this day a warmth and practicality which translates into an entertaining, informative magazine for a whole new younger generation of modern day home owners that are highly responsive to real interiors with heart that speak to them, not at them. real living was all about passion, trust and an authentic voice.

Through the success of the magazine brand extensions evolved from a range of homewares for Freedom furniture and Target to the School of real living - a sponsored monthly live event for readers and several interior books.

This SIMPLE and rather QUIRKY little magazine reached 93,000+ circulation.
