“This issue is a reflection of the vibrant, happy season we find ourselves in,” writes Editor Ashley Nolan. “I hope that STYLE will keep you company during your summer break and I hope it is a time filled with joie de vivre.”
Our two covers celebrate the bright new season. On one, we get romantic in floral prints and Parisian pinks with Emily in Paris star Lily Collins, and on the other, a beach house enchants with interiors that are just as eye-catching as the ocean views.
