The Heritage – The Making of a Show Home

Over two years of hard work, dedication, and collaboration came to a grand finale as the gorgeous 4,800-square-foot masterpiece, The Heritage – A VIE Legacy Show Home, was unveiled on September 16, 2022. Developers Carl and Tamara Tricoli of Bella Mare Real Estate Holdings and numerous building partners worked tirelessly to make the fifth VIE show home possible. It was a joy to celebrate this talented team at The Heritage Grand Reveal party featuring a solo fine art photography exhibit by Julian Lennon and a fundraiser for Point Washington Medical Clinic. As we close out the story of the beautiful home in Seagrove Beach, Florida, we’re excited to toast the team and congratulate the new homeowners on their legacy getaway by the Gulf of Mexico. Their story is just beginning!

How To VIEw A Dream Documentary

VIE magazine’s founder/editor-in-chief Lisa Burwell and founder/published Gerald Burwell, along with the whole VIE team, are thrilled to announce that How to View a Dream is now live online for viewing! This short documentary film was created and produced by Micaiah and Deborah Smoots of AlohaBorah Media, with assistance from Anthony Smoots. It tells the story of VIE magazine from day one when Lisa Burwell felt the calling to begin a luxury lifestyle magazine in Northwest Florida in 2008. Utilizing the marketing, design, photography, and writing expertise of the team at The Idea Boutique, Burwell’s branding and marketing agency founded in 1994, the dream to start a magazine telling Stories with Heart & Soul become a reality. VIE (French for “life”) was born and has since expanded into a national luxury lifestyle magazine that publishes monthly in print and online. The ethos has not changed, however, and telling Stories with Heart & Soul is still our mission!
