For 2015 we decided to take a fresh look at how Studio Home would work with the brands in our local design industry, the format and opportunities we offer them to have a valuable presence on the site AND how this would be presented in a way that is interesting and engaging to YOU!
It was time to shake things up a little!
We have made some basic tweaks to our format – for example, the sidebar going back to the left and a more obvious and easy to locate navigation bar. But the largest and most obvious change is the new “Powered by” bar !
On a monthly basis we are now “Powered by” a singular brand – these are companies who want to align with the content we produce, the industry we support and are proud to display their logo as the only external one on our landing page. We treasure these partnerships as they help “power us” to continue the daily delivery of introductions to be explored and support our on going goals within the down under design community. They help us deliver what you want!
Big thanks to our debut champions – Triumph and Disaster!!
But where are the ads we used to browse down the side bar?
Oh they have moved into somewhere much roomier !!
By clicking on the “SHOP” banner in the sidebar and the top navigation bar you can now access a big juicy “visual mall” containing some of New Zealand and Australia’s most exciting brands and online stores!
Large linked tiles are supported by short introductions (often containing exclusive offers exclusive to Studio Home readers!) and up to three direct links to the stores own social media channels – something totally unique in the blog space at the moment and ultra convenient for you!
Please take some time to trawl and bookmark as a resource – this page has a growing collection of exciting stores with many newcomers who I think you will love.
I hope you enjoy our new clothes and understand our efforts to continue to let Studio Home go in its own direction!
