Letter from the Editor

Happy anniversary and heartfelt thanks from LiveAbode.

We’re commemorating our first year of celebrating home expression.

It’s been one year since we launched LiveAbode–and what a year it’s been! We didn’t know what to expect when we introduced our online design guide to the world. We only knew that we wanted to create a resource that shared our passion for exterior design. Our first year has rewarded us with tremendous support and engagement, and for that, we thank you!

To celebrate our anniversary, we’re sharing some of our favorite articles of the year:

With LiveAbode, we want you to feel as good about the outside of your home as you do about the inside–if not more! That’s why we fill our online design guide with great exterior-celebrating content, instructional videos and quizzes. The goal is to identify your style and then give you ideas about designing within that style.

As we move forward with new content this year, we want to hear from you. What topics would you like to learn more about? Do you have a question or outdoor project you want to tackle but don’t know where to start? Let us help by taking this short reader survey.

Thanks again for being a part of our passion for exterior design. And here’s to an exciting second year of LiveAbode!
