While there has been a St. Louis Magazine in existence for nearly 50 years, our iteration has been published since 1995, when it was launched as a quarterly. The premier issue, published in spring 1995, featured a cover story on Sheryl Crow. By the fall of that year, St. Louis Magazine had increased its frequency to bimonthly; two years later, in November 1997, the magazine made the move to monthly, which has been its schedule ever since. Together, the magazine's editorial and art staff work to make each issue a compelling blend of packages that provide a service to readers (local health tips; best restaurants; unique shopping locations; affordable family activities; suggestions for picking the right school for your child), feature articles that profile local personalities or explore critical issues, and previews and reviews of the city's latest offerings in food and culture. Presented with sharp photography and striking illustrations, St. Louis Magazine provides an engaging, intelligent way for St. Louisans to know their region.



NoneMission Statement

Design STL is the unequivocal must-read for people who love their home. The magazine inspires St. Louisans to entertain, cook, decorate and thoroughly enjoy their home environment. With issues themed around the outdoors, culinary, design and holiday, Design STL provides both valuable information and trends to inspire.


Design STL, originally referred to as St. Louis At Home, was first introduced in February 2004 as a special quarterly insert in St. Louis Magazine. Earning great response from readers and advertisers, SLM Media Group launched the premier issue of St. Louis At Home in spring 2005. The next year, St. Louis At Home earned top honors from the City & Regional Magazine Association in the category of Ancillary Publication. The publication has continued to evolve since then. In May 2018, the magazine's name was changed to Design STL to represent the broader scope of the editorial content.
