In the end of all of the advertising outlets that we utilize they come up as our favorite. The publication is well-respected in the industry. The people that run and operate the magazine have demonstrated to be the utmost in professionalism, delivery and quality of service. Their attention to detail surpasses all others and the assistance that we receive in our ads can only be described as superior.

“I love the polished look and feel of the magazine, and figured that if no new business came my way, my design firm would be in good company. After advertising in just one issue, I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from a prospective client expressing interest in my design work. She told me that she saw my ad in Home & Design and loved both my ad and the custom bookmark (designed by Creative Design & Print) that she found in my page. She and her husband retained my firm and signed a million dollar renovation and design contract. Home & Design has made me a believer in the power of advertising my company!”

“About 15 years ago we purchased a condo on the Gulf which reflected the seaside look of the 80’s with pastel colors throughout.  When it came time to upgrade about 5 years ago, our tile distributor offered us a copy of Home & Design Magazine which carried his advertisement.  That gift helped change our winter place into a showplace.  Page after page of distinctive rooms with wonderful ideas for home furnishings, cabinetry, flooring, cornice molding, tile, granite, etc. made renovation easy.   Contractors were listed to help us achieve the look we were after.  Now, when guests comment about the beautiful results, we refer them to Home & Design Magazine.  We congratulate you on your fine publication.”

– Charles and Dorothy Bauss | Loyal Reader


“I started my design firm, Michael Biondo Lifestyle Design, in 1998.  Over the years, I have never advertised.  My clients, both in Manhattan and now in Naples, came to me exclusively from word of mouth and referrals.  This past year, I decided to place an ad in Home & Design, Southwest Florida.  I loved the polished look and feel of the magazine, and figured that if no new business came my way, my design firm would be in good company.  I also thought the ad would help with name recognition since I am fairly new to Naples. The price was reasonable for an annual magazine and Linda Donnelly, the publisher, was a pleasure to work with! Jennifer Betterman of Creative Design and Print created a beautiful and sleek ad, and I was very happy with the result!  The magazine premiered in January. Shortly thereafter, I was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from a prospective client expressing interest in my design work. She told me that she saw my ad in Home & Design and loved both my ad and the custom bookmark (designed by Jennifer) that she found in my page. She and her husband retained my firm and signed a million dollar renovation and design contract.  Work is set to commence on their elevated residence in the next few weeks. Home and Design has made me a believer in the power of advertising my company!”

– Laurie & Diana | Cinnabar | www.cinnabardesign.com


“I moved to Naples last summer and, after completing a major renovation, needed to find someone to design beautiful window treatments for my home. I had all my furniture, so I was looking for a specialist, someone who would not mind the limited scope of my project.

I had a few unsuccessful leads, and saw an ad for Cindy Gayer (of Window Wear Design) in a copy of your magazine which I had picked up in a local store.  I called Cindy and soon realized that she was exactly what I was looking for. I am happy to tell you that my experience with Cindy was delightful and fun, and my windows look amazing. Home & Design led me directly to an incredibly talented professional who has helped me complete my home perfectly. I will certainly continue to use the magazine as a resource in future projects!”
