Big Announcement: Rue Magazine Launching September 2010!


The day has finally come and I can't tell you how excited I am to introduce you to Rue Magazine!!! Rue, the French word for street will be your pathway to stylish living and launches online in September 2010!

The industry has rallied, the support has been garnered, and boy do we have an amazing premiere issue in store for you! We'll introduce you to your new favorites and cement your love for that seasoned pro. We'll give you decorating ideas, tabletop tips, printable paper goods you can download, and exclusive videos you won't find anywhere else! We won't stop until you have everything you need to create a look that's all your own.

The idea was born last April on my 27th birthday (birthday's tend to be a good time to go after dreams!) -- and after a handful of phone calls and a dozen emails, before I knew it, Rue starting taking shape! I let a few close friends in on the secret. The insanely talented Anne of The City Sage and Alaina of Live Creating Yourself quickly joined in on the fun as co-founders, and Caitlin of Sacramento Street is the newest edition to the Rue team!

In fact, as I write this Anne and I are blogging side by side in New York! We're here for a week to bring you three amazing home tours, including an A-list interior designer, a fashion designer whose bags you likely own, and a blogger you already know and love! All captured for your visual delights by a phenomenal group of photographers, who have shot for publications like Domino, House Beautiful, Martha Stewart Living, Town & Country, and The New York Times, to name a few. I know...we're pinching ourselves too!

So, follow along this summer as we travel the globe through Rue updates on Twitter (Anne and I will be tweeting our New York adventures!), fan us on Facebook for behind the scenes photos, and sign-up for our newsletter on the newly launched Rue Magazine website!

We hope you'll come along for the ride...we're going to have so much fun!

xo,
Crystal

hilaryinspired said...

Crystal! I'm speechless...this is tremendously exciting news for you and for the rest of the interior enthusiasts' community! I have a great interest in publishing and especially interiors/fashion/style via the internet (hence my blog www.hilaryinspired.com) but I have always felt a strange void in the non-internet market since Domino left us. This looks like the next most awesome thing in Shelter publications. Can't wait and best of luck!

Charlotta Ward said...

Crystal I am jumping on my chair in excitement for you, for us and for the amazing road ('xuse the pun!) that lies ahead!

Can't tell you how thrilled I am for you. Bonne chance with it all and let the fun begin!!

x Charlotta
