How to Become a Stylemaker

If you’re interested in becoming a Stylemaker or want to nominate someone, here’s exactly how to get in the running.

Creative. Adventurous. Inspiring. Confident. Innovative. Bold. That's how we describe our Stylemakers—those individuals we've been spotlighting over the past decade for their influence on how we live at home.

Stylemakers are more than the people featured on the cover of each Stylemaker issue of Better Homes & Gardens. They fill the pages of the magazine. They sit on panels, lead demonstrations, and bring their enthusiasm as attendees at the annual Stylemaker event. They are always learning, meeting new people, and sharing their experiences.

Above all, they're authentic. Their personal style, the stories they tell, and the things they create spark genuine connections. And even when their style doesn't fit in our home or our budget, or their experiences feel far different than ours, we still find ideas that resonate and takeaways that can apply to our own lives. Their fresh perspectives have shaped the way we decorate, cook, garden, and spend our free time.

Stylemakers have us eagerly looking forward to what's next, so that style is always evolving.

Katy has two simple tips to help you get noticed.
