This April, Diablo Publications launches Design for Living featuring the best in architecture and home design. “No one is publishing a home magazine that speaks directly to North and East Bay luxury homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area. The shelter category is hot with consumers right now; it's the perfect time for us to launch Design for Living.”—Barney Fonzi, publisher

(PRWEB) February 12, 2005 -- Diablo Publications announces the launch of Design for Living, the newest home magazine focusing on design inspiration, home style and award-winning architecture. The premiere issue, delivering to homes in April, highlights twelve of the Bay Area’s top architectural designs from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) East Bay chapter home design awards.

Every issue of Design for Living features design-sophisticated content on trends, products, and ideas for enhancing life indoors and out. Editorial coverage encompasses a wide range of design and architecture styles from urban lofts to suburban estates and everything in between. With beautiful photography, expert-driven editorial, and a contemporary design sensibility, Design for Living inspires, motivates, and excites luxury homeowners.

Design for Living’s distribution model targets homeowners in affluent communities throughout Alameda, Contra Costa, Napa and Solano counties. 25,000 copies are sent to million dollar homes in these areas effectively reaching upscale consumers. Additionally, AIA offers bonus circulation to 13,000 Bay Area architect and design professionals through their memberships, home and garden shows and other distribution outlets. This multi-tiered approach assures that Design for Living will reach a targeted and influential readership.
