Simply You Living aims to breathe style into readers homes and their lives
There is a new style guide in store, designed to apply the philosophies of one of New Zealand’s most renowned fashion
icons to the art of living.
From home decorating and interior design to entertaining and travel Simply You Living is your ‘How To’ guide to living
the life you want from the publishing house of Paula Ryan’s Simply You fashion magazine.
On sale from Monday, (31 October, 2005), Simply You Living focuses on making style accessible and easy to achieve. It
mixes contemporary ideas with traditional values and gives advice on keeping up with new trends and making them work
with your existing pieces.
Simply You Living also takes a peak inside well-known New Zealander’s homes. In the first issue, fashion designer
Trelise Cooper talks about her new home renovations.
Simply You Living will also encourage readers to enjoy the things they love and re-invent items they already own as well
as investing in new pieces and where to find them.
Founder and editorial director, Paula Ryan says no room in the house will be ignored with the very best ideas,
innovations and style celebrated within the magazine.
“Too many people think it’s difficult to have a stylish home, but just like a clever wardrobe, it is amazing what a few
simple tricks do achieve.”
Editor, Maria Ryan, who is also Paula’s sister describes the new magazine as the perfect partner to the successful
Simply You Fashion title.
“This new magazine certainly bears Paula’s mark – its philosophy is simplicity and elegance, the same principles that
apply to great personal style. We will look at interiors and entertaining, whether it is at home or abroad. This first
issue features the exclusive story and images from Paula’s own wedding in tropical Rarotonga with advice on how to
prepare for a beach wedding.”
The Simply You Living editorial team is passionate about its New Zealand focus, with heavy emphasis on New Zealand
homes, products available in New Zealand and tips that suit our unique New Zealand way-of-life. Summer beach living
features strongly in the first issue with entertaining ideas for beach, barbecue and beyond.

unparalleled success in the notoriously competitive publishing industry and has become an icon in New Zealand popular
