Real Living SPACE September 14-15 2013
As if the high of being featured as their August shop of the month weren’t enough, the Real Living team invited L’Indochine to be one of their partners in their amazing Real Living SPACE event! We of course gamely agreed without so much as batting an eyelash.
“Following its celebrated new and improved redesign, Real Living brings another dash of inspiration in creating beautiful and practical homes through its ultimate shopping and design showhouse, the Real Living Space”.
We chatted with Associate Publisher Tom Castaneda and Editor In Chief Rachelle Medina to give us a brief background about Real Living SPACE.

TIS (The Inspiration Seekers): Congratulations! You guys did an incredible job! How did you come up with the concept for Real Living SPACE?
Tom: 10 years is a momentous occasion, its extra special so we wanted something that would elevate the magazine. As you know, we recently redesigned the magazine, Rachelle can tell you more about it..
Rachelle: Content wise, its the same, as for the layout we made it more streamlined, fresher and with more service pages. We now have a shopping page for every home feature. We have also have a lot more tips.
Tom: We’ve added more product features which means more shopping opportunities. With that in mind, we got to thinking.. how could we bring Real Living to life? Obviously the DNA of the magazine is design inspiration so that’s what we wanted to share with our readers. We invited 8 designers ( 7 for the function room and condo units, 1 for the trade floor) to come up with rooms that will appeal to different aesthetics.
Rachelle: The designers were given imaginary clients, each one represented a Real Living reader. We have the single woman, newlyweds and those with a growing family.
Tom: We want to show our readers what you can do with a small space as well as the design possibilities of a bigger space. Basically we want to give them the opportunity to walk through the pages of Real Living.
TIS: You guys did exactly that! We found all the spaces so inspiring! Thank you so much for having us!
