We’re still beaming from a wonderful event at Story in New York City this week which celebrated the launch of our Seprember Stylemaker issue!
On Tuesday evening we welcomed local NYC bloggers and Stylemakers featured in the issue including Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy, Suzanne McGrath of Good Bones Great Pieces, winner of HGTV’s Design Star Kim Myles, and BHG’s Executive Editor Oma Blaise Ford to discuss all things style.
The fabulous Stacy Kunstel moderated the Q&A, which led to many quotable moments and lots of interesting conversation.
Here are a few of our favorite Q&A moments:
- BHG’s Oma Blaise Ford said blogging plays a huge role in finding different perspectives in style.
- According to Suzanne McGrath, adding furniture with varied geometry works wonders and the easiest way to refresh a space is with paint and pillows.
- Kim Myles says she made things that she couldn’t find in stores, and that living beautifully helps you live well. A sense of humor is essential.
- Art is irreplaceable and you need to be willing to make mistakes when finding your style said Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan.

At the end of the night, attendees received a BHG Stylemaker tote filled with fun goodies. And did we mention the delicious Ice Cream Sandwich bar from CoolHaus? Their frosty treats we’re a huge hit!
