When it comes to summer in New England, nothing beats being at the coast, which the homes in our July/August issue (in homes and online next week) prove most beautifully. Photographed by Durston Saylor, the Truro, Massachusetts, house on the cover was designed by architect Jill Neubauer for a family of eight that wanted a Modern-but-oh-so-comfortable summer home. The striking outdoor staircase leads to a roof deck with views of Cape Cod Bay and beyond.
Ocean vistas and breezes also grace homes in the Rhode Island beach communities of Quonochontaug, Weekapaug, and Little Compton, which each have their own architectural style and charm. And though these summer spots are perfect for relaxing, rest we did not — we climbed Greylock Mountain in the northwest corner of Massachusetts, flew kites built by designers with Romo fabrics at World’s End in Hingham, Massachusetts, studied urban beehives, and scoured New Hampshire’s Antique Alley for treasures.
Whew! We’re ready for a lazy day in the hammock with the latest issue of Design New England. Care to join us?
