New Magazine To Feature Bahamian Interior Design


Tribune Features Writer


THE SAYING what is on the inside is more important than the out, not only applies to people but also applies to houses. A new local magazine set for launch next month mirrors this idea as it is geared towards interior designs offering readers ideas on how to spruce up their living space.

Bahamian Escapes Home and Lifestyle Magazine is the brainchild of Shamon Campbell who aspires to show the world what the Bahamas has to offer in terms of world class interior design. The magazine intends to do so by featuring the interiors of local properties with varying price ranges. Additionally, how-to’s on recreating expensive designs as well as travel, art cooking dining, and entertainment features will also be included.

Leading up to the magazine’s launch on April 1, the Bahamian Escapes team have held several events. The first event was called “The Sweet Tooth” which is also a special segment in the magazine. It featured segment writer Macarra Fowler, owner of Hello Cupcake. The event was held at the Balmoral Club and brought out culinary professionals, interior designers and others.

“The Perfect Palate” event which was also held to promote that segment of the magazine, featured dishes by Chef Montgomery Penn, head Chef at the Balmoral Club. Dishes that will be unveiled when the magazine is launched were on display.

“Our first goal is to create quality content and with mind-blowing packaging. Its presentation needs to be internationally competitive and long-term. We strive to be the resource and authority for interior design in the country,” said Matt Sweeting, marketing and branding specialist.

Readers can expect to see the interiors of awesome properties throughout the country, to find where they can source local supplies to duplicate these designs. Our magazine will cover topics indirectly related to the home and feature segments on travelling efficiently and affordably, local real estate insight and the best buys,” said Mr Sweeting.

The segment called “The Perfect Palate” featuring Balmoral Club’s executive chef Montgomery Penn will feature information on how to make dessert anytime of the day and expand your horizons by cooking.

What separates Bahamian Escapes magazine is the direction it takes with interior design at the forefront. People seeking ideas on how to spruce up their homes will find design ideas, colour schemes and different concepts that suits their spaces best.

“The magazine stands out because of its direction taken on interiors of local properties. Our magazine’s cover model in our first photoshoot was a sixteen million dollar home. 

We feel our focus separates us, as we are focusing on interiors and subsequently attracting a more mature audience, ideally those that have purchased their home, or are on the market. Our production quality will wow our readers with R. Wells photography who has shot million dollar homes throughout the country as our staff photographer. We have had many interviews and decided on the best local talent available to design the pages of our magazine so we know our quality will differentiate Bahamian Escapes,” he told Tribune Entertainment.

Bahamian Escapes Home and Lifestyle Magazine will publish bimonthly online.

“We feel that there are some obvious advantages to an online publication. Firstly an eternal shelf life, our advertisers ads will last online forever. As video, social media integration, and search engine optimisation now has a considerable place in the balance sheet of many companies this marketing media should answer the marketing cries of many companies. We have tools that can drive a customer right from the pages of our publication into their cart at a local distributor, this is extremely essential for local business,” Mr Sweeting said.

There is a great demand for such magazines, many homeowners prefer to check these magazines to find useful tips for their homes. I personally prefer getting ideas from home related blogs, I mostly rely on the virtual world to find everything for my need. When I needed an AC repairing service provider, I went online and found them at http://www.acbyj.com/arizona-ac/mesa-...">http://www.acbyj.com/.

Bahamian Escapes Home and Lifestyle Magazine is definitely going to be a popular choice for home owners. I mostly explored interior designing blogs to find some interesting ideas for my home. I think that flooring is a vital area which needs special attention. For my flooring needs I opted for http://www.rlcflooring.com/">RLC. They offer amazing flooring choices at an affordable price.

Bahamian Escapes Home and Lifestyle Magazine is definitely going to be a cut above the rest of the magazines in this field. We certainly hope to find some interesting and useful write-ups from them. I have designed my own home and I have taken ideas from various interior designing magazines and blogs. Since, I bought the home improvement items online from http://www.stoversliquidation.com">www.stoversliquidation.com, I saved a lot of money.

They have great ambition and let us just hope that they succeed in fulfilling their aim. If they provide useful information, tips, guidance in the magazine, they would be able to draw attention of the home owners. When I designed my home I followed interior designing blogs and I found some really wonderful tips there, I even found out about the http://www.mcswaincarpets.com">McSwain Floor installation service on a blog.

They have all they need to make their mark in this industry. However, they need to carefully plan their each issue, because there are scores of interior designing magazines available in the market, so they need to provide something special to stand out from the rest. They should give out some vital information about shops and suppliers. When I was looking for window and door provider for my house, I checked plenty of magazines finally I found the reference of Arch Design Window & Door Co. in a magazine. This company has some stunning collection of windows and doors, you can explore their collection at http://www.archdesignwd.com/Why-Arch-...">www.archdesignwd.com/.

Homeowners are going to love this unique interior designing magazine, but the magazine should always provide them with fresh and cool ideas about interior decoration. However, home owners can now purchase what they need for their homes online now. For instance, if they require vinyl fencing they could buy it online at http://www.vinylfenceco.com/">http://www.vinylfenceco.com/.

Through the Bahamian Escapes Home and Lifestyle Magazine, the readers would be able to learn about many unique concepts about interior designing. However, while purchasing any material for your home make sure that you are buying it from a reputed supplier or manufacturer, for instance, if you need log siding then you should buy it from http://homesteadtimbers.com/">Homestead Timbers.

Those who are planning on decking up their home in different style could http://www.be-there4you.com/commercia...">discover more here in this magazine. The interior designers need to be innovative and they should always be ready to try out dynamic ideas to create beautiful homes. However, the home owners also need to keep their house safe from pests, especially if they are using a lot of wooden items to deck up their homes.
