5 Things We Love About the 417 Home Redesign

For the past six months, the editorial and art teams at 417 have brainstormed, worked, reworked and perfected a completely redesigned 417 Home magazine. Our labor of love is finally here, and we can’t wait to show it off.

1. The Ever-Changing Color Palette 
Inspired by our mood board in the front of the magazine that captures color and material trends hitting the local design scene, each issue has an organic color palette that visually ties the pages together from beginning to end.

Front of Book - Pink

Curated - Purple

Handbook - Green

Lifestyle - Blue

2. New Recurring Story Types 
Readers can count on seeing a fabulous Kitchen Spotlight, a luxurious Bath Spotlight, an inspiring Design Eye and a heart-warming End Note in every issue. These stories are the perfect place to find exciting, easy-to-read information to help you live your best life.

3. Real Life Stories You Can Relate To
You’ll “run into” your neighbors, friends and colleagues on these pages. The magazine is full of stories of personal experiences of the people who are defining the local lifestyle and starting trends. We’re bringing those stories straight to you, complete with easy-to-pull-off recipes, DIY projects and how-tos.

Artist in Residence: Crystal Moody repurposed a spacious library table to pull double duty, serving as her desk by day and a place for homework and family games after hours. Natural light floods the room through original, wavy-glass windows.
