cover_of_the_week-125x125The January 2015 issue of Azure arrived just in time for Christmas.  The annual Houses issue is always delicious.

Sofiola Papadhimitri, Azure’s Circulation Director says:  “AZURE’s Annual Houses Issue features five spectacular residences, from a historic Canadian home in Vancouver to a timeless Portuguese casa. Plus: Frank Gehry’s fashionable foundation for LVMH, showstoppers from London Design Week and Cersaie in Bologna, and the best in dining furniture and wireless speakers.”

“This is AZURE’s best selling issue of the year, year after year featuring a contemporary house on the cover. This year we opted for a minimalist design, a residence that simply keeps with the traditional house shape, very symbolic and simple. The cover line was treated in bright gradient color, set against a starry sky, in large font to catch the eye. The idea is to trigger curiosity. The interior of the house is brightly illuminated, inviting you to take a peak inside.”

The Art Director is Karen Simpson.
