House Beautiful is on the Lookout for Writers with a Passion for Design

House Beautiful, Hearst’s shelter magazine for affluent women that aims to deliver expert takes on personal style, decorators’ influences and homeowners’ lifestyles, seeks writers with not only strong reporting skills, but also a passion for the world of design.

The pub pays up to $2.50 a word and many sections are open to freelancers. One thing to remember is that other than a few special issues dedicated to international design, the mag primarily covers home design in the States.

“We are devoted to presenting the best in American design and decorating domestics,” said executive editor Shax Riegler. House Beautiful typically presents insider information using the Q&A format everywhere from the front-of-book to the feature well. “We like to hear directly from the mouth of the designer to understand the decisions they’ve made, their inspirations and how they made it happen. It’s a hard format because it has to be an interesting conversation and not just a transcript of the conversation,” Riegler explained.
