My Article in the July/August Issue of Design New England

My article in Design New England


I recently had the pleasure of writing an article for Design New England – The Magazine of Splendid Homes and Gardens. Design New England has been one of my favorite shelter publications for years. In fact, I like it so much, I keep every copy I receive and now have an inventory dating back to 2009.

When I was asked to take a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard to write about a home addition and renovation in Edgartown, I jumped at the chance. Despite a rainy day, it was a pleasure meeting with the architect and interior designers who transformed this traditional Cape-style home.  The professionals at Hutker Architects and Martha’s Vineyard Interior Design did an amazing job infusing contemporary structure and design into a 1950s home that was comfy and cozy, but not modern. My enjoyment continued when I had the opportunity to talk with the London-based homeowners by phone. The wife was an absolute treat to speak with and she was extremely helpful in working with me to get all of the details of this unique project straight.


If you happen by a copy of Design New England at the newsstands, I hope you’ll pick up a copy. Otherwise take a peak at my article, Expansion Plan, at the Design New England website.


So excited to see my name on the Contributors page.

Sounds like you get to combine passion with profession and an island visit. Great story. FWIW I love the island banquette structure. Brilliant use of space. I always felt eating at a kitchen island has a sterile non – connecting feel. This brought back the kitchen nook in a very contemporary way
