First, a big thank you to our avid and dedicated audience! We’re so delighted by the enthusiasm of readers who find us on the newsstand, on Facebook, and in the independent shops that carry the magazine. (Discounted bulk sales are offered to stores carrying furniture, primitives, artisan goods, and antiques, as well as to museum shops.) Thank you for sharing comments as well as photos of your restored homes.
Two meticulous restorations are presented in this issue—one in Ipswich, Massachusetts, the other in Brookeville, Maryland. But there’s also a new old house, built by its owners on Wisconsin farmland. Talk about dedication! From traditional masonry work to furniture-making and distressed finishes, these folks did it all.
Their reproduction country kitchen is one of three kitchens you’ll find in this issue. Simple luxury describes the new kitchen that occupies an addition to the Ipswich house. And the history-laden Maryland house finally has a kitchen that belongs.
