Styled. issue six | the art of summer merrymaking

I am incredibly happy to share with you today the sixth issue of Styled. magazine! An edition brimming with floral inspiration from start to finish. It will be the last issue I release until late this summer and I hope it inspires you to stop and enjoy the beautiful reasons to you may have to celebrate this season. Samantha did a wonderful job with the graphic design and I think you will find our contributors, projects, and prose to be exceptionally perfect for the gradually coming warmth of summer.

In an effort to hear your thoughts and share this passion we are offering a little giveaway with this release. If you peek into this issue and leave me a note about something you loved you will be entered to win a gorgeous floral clutch from Anthropologie. If you share the magazine with a link to this post on Twitter, Facebook, or pin the cover on Pinterest you can have a second, third, and fourth entry. Just leave a comment for each media network you share through. Thanks for helping us get the word out and I really look forward to reading what inspires you.

The giveaway will remain open until April 30th.

    It sounds so simple, but I love the suggestion of using small bowls of fresh vegetables at parties as a decor element/hors d’oeuvre. Usually I arrange several on a large plate, but the idea of small bowls looks so much prettier and less expected.

  64. Lori White says:

    I just discovered Styled and I’m inspired and over-thee-moon for your ideas for antler floral pieces. I have a number of antlers around my house – my boyfriend keeps dragging them home – and this is such a great way for me to incorporate them into our home and make them work for me, as well. I also LOVE the way you styled the Bohemian floral dinner table.. I have to admit that I’m trying to find some lighting fixtures and the 4 colourful pendants were my favourite part!

  65. Karynna says:
