Program Information

For decades, Coastal Living and Southern Living have curated the best in home design to be featured in our magazines. We’ve established invaluable relationships with trailblazers, trendsetters, and icons in the design industry. With this, designers and readers look to both brands for design tips, trends, and inspiration. The Southern Living/Coastal Living Design Alliance connects these two audiences and extends our style from the pages of our magazines to the homes of consumers. All designers are vetted and certified as members of our program. After connecting with one of our designers, consumers can confidently proceed with their home projects knowing that they are working with a professional who meets the high standards and style of our unique brands.
