There is always laughter, lots of discussions and of course, time for us to hear from you on what you would like to see us edit next.
Stacie Standifer | Founder
Stacie Standifer is no stranger to building empires in the community. Nashville native, she founded and built Lifestyles and several associated magazines and devoted her heart and soul to growing the publications for fifteen years. She ultimately sold the group and moved on to pursue other interests in a more elevated arena as her previous media outlet shifted to cover more mass-market territory under corporate direction and influence.
Over the past few years, Stacie has worked with a number of luxury brands and events across the country, learning more about living well and original presentation along the way. Frequent travel is not only one of her great loves but has provided endless inspiration in developing something that truly serves those in her city in a unique and entertaining way. She decided to enlist help from some of her most valued former team members in the process and has added top creatives to assemble a dynamic group of talents that she loves to work with each day.
When not working on a strategy for one of her national luxury clients on branding or specialty events, she is usually personally engaged in discovering the next best things to share with her friends and followers. Her mindset is forever curious, and you’ll almost always find her in some version of research mode. That includes lots of exploring and an endless appetite for reading. When not entertaining at her West Nashville home, or volunteering to assist with various charities, she often travels with her husband, award-winning songwriter Tim Nichols. She loves her groups of friends, her family and making the most of every moment by surrounding herself with people and things that feed her passion for bringing casual elegance to the everyday.
