Before we send our February issue live on Monday (hooray!) we thought it might be fun to take a closer look at this mod fashion editorial from our January issue. The fun, retro ensembles have us wishing we could go back in time. This spring the Matchbook girl is all about the swinging sixties! View the full editorial here >>>
We are over the moon to feature Trina Turk in our March issue! Trina welcomed the Matchbook team into her mid-century Los Angeles home for a glimpse into her colorful, SoCal Chic world.

The Matchbook team was positively thrilled to have Jonathan Adler on our anniversary cover! The talented potter-turned-happy-chic-lifestyle-expert was charming, witty, and kind as can be. Be sure to check out page 100 of our new February issue to read a fantastic interview with Jonathan!

We thought you might appreciate seeing a bit more of The Greenbrier up close! The iconic West Virginia resort was decorated by the late great Dorothy Draper and as you can see, has style in spades. The colorful interiors were photographed by Cooper Carras for our new February 2012 issue (read all about it on page 74) — hope you enjoy!
Hi Matchbook girls! Thought we’d post some big, lovely, easy-to-re-blog images of Jules Reid for your use! :) It was such a treat feature Jules and her beautiful family (and home!) in our anniversary issue. Flip to page 84 of the February 2012 issue for the full scoop!

Do you love eBay as much as we do? Today you can find some of my top picks on The Inside Source along with a fun little interview. You’ll have to forgive me for the pug obsession – I’m well aware it’s a bit nutty! Many thanks to Emily for taking the time to chat with me – such an honor to be featured by a company I so admire. Tell us, what are your favorite eBay buys?
We are incredibly honored to be included in the New York Times as a pioneer in the online magazine industry. It is a recognition of our field, the talent of our community, and above all, your support. As you may have seen, the tone of the piece caused a bit of a stir on the web. To this point, we would love to recognize Grace Bonney for her thoughtful and articulate response. It contained wonderfully constructive criticism young women like ourselves can learn from and highlighted the great potential for our field and the future of online media.
Please know that the editors of Lonny, Rue, and High Gloss are some of the kindest and most talented people we’ve encountered. We have nothing but the utmost respect and support for each other and would go to bat for them any day of the week. Behind these publications are six young women that work tirelessly seven days a week to bring their hundreds of thousands of readers inspiration. The piece failed to highlight this.
We ourselves are professionals and take the work that we do very seriously. The article states, “None of the new magazines’ founders can claim much experience in either design or publishing. Only Ms. Adams has a background in interior design…” We’d especially like to clarify one point: Katie worked in high end residential interior design for three years and Jane worked in freelance design before spending two years on J.P. Morgan’s creative team. To that point, a retraction will be printed in the New York Times.
With all this said, there is much to take away from this article and experience. We are incredibly excited about the future of our industry and its endless possibilities. We will continue to carve out our own path and thank you for your support, encouragement, and enthusiasm along the way. And yes, it’s true, we “don’t even have an office” — but we will someday and it will look damn good.
The Matchbook girls have only just begun.
Katie + Jane
