With marvelous homes throughout New England’s vast variety of glorious settings — ocean, lake, island, city, country — our March/April issue (in homes and online next week) delivers on its “Location, location” theme, and then some. The view from the kitchen of this seaside house in Newport, Rhode Island (“From Moonscape to Eden”), for example, looks out past an alluring infinity pool to the ocean. Hard to imagine the lot was once just a pile of schist. To prime the pump for gardening season, we found a highly structured topiary garden in a country setting, and a brook and small pond returned to their naturalized state in Brookline, Massachusetts. We also have a special photo-essay on that New England Icon, the antiques juggernaut known as Brimfield, some stylish ideas on how to dress up a guest bedroom, a preview of Boston's first-ever Design Week, and an architect's remake of a tiny East Boston worker's row house. For all this and more, read the issue next week!
