APRIL 2024

Welcome to City & Beach Lifestyle Magazine! The online magazine was originally launched ten years ago, back in May 2014, to profile luxury brands and inform our international network of new releases and established services, particularly in the interiors and event design sector that we specialise in. Since then, we’ve published luxury hotel reviews including, but not exclusive to, the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, Plaza Athenee Paris, The Martinez, Shutters On The Beach LA, The Franklin Hotel London, The Dorchester, Rosewood London, ME London by Melia and Le Meurice Paris along with personal profiles with leading entrepreneurs and experts such as Geoffrey Kent of Abercrombie & Kent, art collector/auctioneer Simon de Pury, designer Tim Gosling, Claire German CEO of Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, travel expert Tiffany Dowd, Greg Day of the Malibu Beach Inn, Justine Musk (author, ex-wife of Elon Musk) and Barbara Broccoli, producer of the James Bond movies.

As the social and business landscape changes rapidly, so does our content – we constantly adapt according to the climate and occasionally revise and update the entire format… sometimes our features may be more travel related, on other occasions lean towards interiors. During the lead up to the Grand Prix and the yacht show, our focus may move towards Monaco; at the height of summer our features may be led more by what is happening in holiday destinations around the world – St Tropez, Ibiza, Malibu, Aspen, Maldives, Tulum. We take pleasure in highlighting our favourite brands, some of which we’ve been happily liaising with in the luxury lifestyle arena for over 20 years – Alain Ducasse, Rob van Helden, Wolfgang Puck, Champagne Krug, Andrew Martin International – others more recently including Leoube, Graphenstone, Opening Statements, Clayworks, Schumacher, Objet Luxe, Davidson London, Bartholomew Landscaping and Champagne Arlaux…

The online magazine audience has remained constant throughout it’s existence – mainly top end designers, architects and luxury hoteliers plus UHNWI based in London, Los Angeles and Paris – those who enjoy the finer things in life such as beautiful homes and furnishings, high profile celebrations, luxury cars, fashion, gourmet dining and travel; I hope you enjoy the image/video-led content and find the resources useful, whether you’re a reader or one of our associates. Please do get in touch if you have any ideas for future content or would like to participate in a lifestyle feature!

Best wishes,

Nicky Summer
