Matthew Mead’s New Magazine

October 8, 2010

Stylist, photographer, writer, art director — I could go on and on — the talented Matthew Mead wrote to me recently to share some of the pages of his new magazine, Holiday, and I thought I’d show you a glimpse or two to inspire you today. I’m so proud to see Matthew doing a magazine!

Matthew Mead's New Magazine

This self-published magazine was born of Matthew’s desire to connect directly with readers and to produce, direct, style and photograph every aspect of his work and create something beautiful to hopefully fill the void on newsstands today. He even writes the recipes! I don’t know about you, but I could use some tea and cookies right about now…

As you can see, his premiere issue includes a variety of decorating styles, recipes, entertaining and more and I appreciate that he is experimenting with less traditional color palettes — it’s a refreshing change and feels very fresh. His goal is to expand with a quarterly magazine filled with inspiring seasonal lifestyle and decorating ideas — the launch of HOLIDAY will hopefully pave the way!

If you’d like a copy of this magazine, you may purchase it through his site (he ships worldwide) and your copy will arriving during the first week of November.

Congrats, Matthew!

    This will be my first year receiving Holiday and I am so excited! I love that lamp sooooo much, by the way. That is a dream of an eating space, no matter what the time of year.

    Great styling and beautiful pictures… I guess his magazines will become collectors.. better buy the first issue now!
    Isn’t it a dream come true to be talented enough to have your OWN magazine and be behind every single detail in it?

    I ordered the magazine some time ago and have been trying to forget about it because he is one of the masters of styling, and I know it will be outstanding…so I had to stop a second before I scrolled through the images, not wanting to spoil the fun! Now I am really impatient! Thanks for the sneak peek.

    Beautiful photos! Do you deliver to Canada?

    May I ask where the aqua and white dining chairs are sourced from?
    Many thanks,
