Meet the Media – Samantha Hart, Editor at Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

sam-h-portraitWhat’s your top story for today?
We’re wrapping up our first issue of Beautiful Southern Homes (on sale December 20). It’s an inside look at the homes of top Southern designers like Celerie Kemble and Darryl Carter and it’s gorgeous!

Tell us about your dream assignment.
Covering the Summer 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. I am fascinated by the limits of human endurance.

Describe the wackiest story you’ve written.
A health story about sexually transmitted diseases. Let’s just say: Be careful what you type into Google.

What is your PR pet peeve?
Email blasts about a new product with no images attached.

Top trend in the industry you’re currently covering or are interested in.
Modern farmhouse style—rustic, nostalgic design that still feels totally fresh.

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m originally from Cape Town, South Africa. I’m a married mom of two, a former marathon runner, an Instagram junkie, and I Iove the color orange.

  1. Hi Sam – we SO appreciate your wonderful coverage of Native Trails in the past, and we hope to send you some new products for 2017 in the coming weeks! What accounts on Instagram do you follow for design inspiration? I ask because I’m a fellow Instagram junkie. ~Ashley

  2. Found the Farmhouse at Heart one time issue last year. Any chance this magazine will become available as a subscription?
