onefinestay celebrates the launch of ‘Guestbook’

Published on : Tuesday, February 19, 2013

OneFineStayonefinestay recently celebrated the launch of Guestbook, a new quarterly print lifestyle publication.
Launched in London in May 2010, onefinestay redefines city travel: live like a local by staying in a distinctive home while the owner is out of town, but with all the comforts and conveniences of a hotel. Guests enjoy 5* linens, fluffy towels, luxury toiletries and even an iPhone for the duration of their stay, while members earn an extra income from their house or apartment at times when it would otherwise stand vacant. This concept has proved popular, with the company successfully expanding to New York in May 2012 and further international expansion plans afoot. Over 1,000 members across both cities now exclusively list their homes with onefinestay.
Guestbook – a journal about living beautifully, and sharing it – is a new publication from onefinestay. It intends to capture the novel concept and lifestyle choice represented by the company’s proposition, which goes beyond offering a new way of travelling or a smart way of earning an extra income.
“I wanted to capture our members’ high-spirited, rich and creative lives and present them in a form away from the practicalities of a business and the constraints of web design,” says Alex Bagner who joined onefinestay in September from Wallpaper*, where she was a senior editor. In her role as Head of Editorial, she is also tasked with building an in-house editorial team and overseeing content and creative across the company.
With the intention to create something thoughtful, informed and at times whimsical, the 96-page launch issue of Guestbook is divided into three ‘rooms’. The Salon is filled with debate and conversation about the home; the Gallery provides a chance to view onefinestay’s carefully curated portfolio; and the Snug offers a peek behind the scenes of the company.
Art directed by Field Projects, Guestbook commissioned award-winning photographers Jason Evans, Stefan Ruiz, and Leigh Johnson, to produce a series of ‘at home’ photo stories. Regular The New Yorker contributor Ian Bilbey was also commissioned to provide charming illustrations which feature on the cover and section openers.
Greg Marsh, CEO and co-founder of onefinestay says, “As a business founded by a team of tech entrepreneurs, the turn to a traditional print publication might come as a surprise. With Guestbook we wanted to create something engaging and full of the character that we revere in our members’ homes, as well as building a global lifestyle brand as we expand internationally.”
