 A Note from the Publishers



When we decided to produce a home decor and design magazine, we became excited about showcasing the wealth of talent and expertise we have here in San Luis Obispo County.

Through our years of publishing and event production we have created some amazing relationships and helped many businesses grow and many locals create the home of their dreams. This publication is an opportunity for us to educate, to tout some of the expertise in the area and to showcase the diverse taste of the people who live here on the central coast.

To some, Living Lavishly takes place in their beach cottage, others in a vineyard estate, country club residence or eclectic family home. From the sunsets at the beach to the sunrise over a vineyard, from a stroll through the village of Arroyo Grande to wine tasting in the hills of Paso Robles, from hiking Bishops  Peak to finding sand dollars on the beach in Morro Bay, we are living lavishly as we work, play, raise our families and build relationships that last. We hope that you enjoy the magazine as much as we enjoyed the process of the collaboration of so many amazing contributors. Please let us know if there is something you would like to see for the next one!
