Welcome to the first issue of 2016! Few things are as invigorating to me than the fresh feeling of a new year, and with it the inspiration to dream up new things and the energy to go after it. And that’s exactly what we’re doing here at Rue this year.

For starters, we’re switching things up a bit and moving to a quarterly publishing schedule starting this year. We wanted to dive even deeper into content with each new issue and give you more of what you come here for: interiors inspiration, the latest and greatest in product, and effortless entertaining ideas. So while new issues will be slightly more spread apart, you’ll have more to chew on with each one. And of course, you can get your daily dose of design inspiration right here at Rue Daily between them. Speaking of, be sure to subscribe to our newly designed newsletter too so you don’t miss a beat!

In the spirit of new beginnings, inside this issue you’ll find many fresh starts: A beloved home’s renovation creates new space for a family of five (pg. 94). Style-conscious staging showcases the possibilities of a new house (pg. 72). A move across the Big Pond brings a Londoner to New York City to build a career and a home (pg. 150). And the Rue team is even sharing our plans for living our best lives in 2016 (pg. 52).

We hope your 2016 is off to a great start!
