My interview with House Beautiful's Newell Turner


To kick off my new series Curbed Interviews, I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with House Beautiful's Editor-in-Chief Newell Turner.  The man is an inexhaustible font of interior design knowledge and can draw seemingly disparate points together like nobody's business.  Turner is an indefatigable champion of American decorating and most definitely has a book (or two) in him.

So without further ado, I give you Newell Turner and an exclusive sneak peek of House Beautiful's May issue - it promises to be a showstopper!

so. awesome. Even if I don't love every single thing HB does (can't please everyone) I think he's got a smart head on his shoulders. Of course, he's Southern so that probably explains it. ; )

Raina,

I am ridiculously backed up on work today and have sworn myself off the interwebs. But you know I dropped everything I was doing to read everything single word of this article.

Bravo, my dear. Bravo.

Makes me like House Beautiful more! Which I suppose was Newell's goal...

Love HB, love Newell, love you! Great interview!!!

Denise said...

I think you mean "without further ado" as in Much Ado About Nothing. "Adieu" means farewell or goodbye.

Raina Cox said...

Denise - Thank you. Correction made.

I'm so glad Newell is in charge at HB now. I liked the magazine before, but I absolutely love it under his guidance. He's good people (as we say in his native South).

Raina, I absolutely devoured this interview. I adore him even more now (at first I admit it was just our common Southern roots, but not now)! Can't wait to see the May issue. PS: thoughtful, great questions for him. M.

"An inexhaustible font of interior design knowledge and can draw seemingly disparate points together like nobody's business." Sounds like the two of you have much in common.

Utterly fantastic interview, Raina!!! I was hanging on every word. You're a true wordsmith and Newell, well, he was putty in your hands.

I think Turner was glad for the interview you have done for him Raina. I can't wait to purchase the book of Turner. That publication will be a great help for an interior designing.
