Welcome.

My name is Margot Austin and I am the editor-in-chief of The Design Edit, a collection of the best design stories I encounter in my life as a stylist and design communications specialist. Read on to meet top talents, get inspired by beautiful spaces, find out about innovative products and  maybe even try one of my dead-easy DIY projects. I look forward to connecting with you, a fellow design hound.

Video Tour: Kawarthas Cottage Design

It's an exciting time friends! The August 2016 issue of House & Home is on stands and the video is posted of an island cottage design project I completed last year for the lovely people you see pictured above. Susan is a superstar lawyer and her littles, Louie and Sadie, are pretty much the coolest.

It was a lot of fun and a ton of work to pull this space together. I have some behind-the-scenes process stories to share, but I am going to wait until the issue of off newsstands to share those so that the print product is not undermined. In the mean time, please pick up a copy (it's a great issue!), download the digital edition, and enjoy this video tour — click on the photo to link to the video. You'll see spaces not shown in the mag and get a real sense of the natural beauty of the setting. Please do come back to learn more about the project!
