Real Simple Home
This annual idea home provides a space for us to bring the brand to life with inspiring design ideas and smart organizational strategies. Our goal is to create a home that is aspirational and at the same time totally attainable.
Each year, I select a varied team of designers and influencers to participate, and work with our team to create their vision within each space. Once installation is complete, I write the 20 page feature story that launches each year's home in the October issue. Following that, we host at least three events within the space before the close of the home.
Holiday Gift Guides
I spearhead the annual holiday gift guide, which typically features more than 50 gifts selected during a four month long curation process with other members of the RS staff and our summer intern.
