Editor’s Note
Talk about deadlines. My baby was due on January 10th. We’d just rolled into 1995, and I was launching a new magazine, this one. The first issue went to the printer on January 5th, leaving me dazed until Peter finally arrived on January 18th. Now, wouldn’t you know, he’s grown up already, off to college in September.

I remember how it felt to be a new mom (scary) and also how it felt to dive into period design (scary): I’d been more into the nitty-gritty guts of renovation at Old-House Journal. I’m an old pro now, with a staggeringly arcane period-design vocabulary. But I still gravitate toward the “before” pictures; I still prefer houses layered in personal history to those primped by a decorator. I think back to my favorites among all those I’ve published . . . I have so many! Lilla Hyttnäs, the home of Swedish painter Carl Larsson and his textile-artist wife, Karin, evokes the most emotion. My story title for that one was “The poetry of every day.” I choked up writing the article: “The house is real but an artist’s dream as well. Surely the children didn’t grow up and move away, or become old and die. There is too much life here.” (What a goober, huh?)

I’ve been proud to produce a magazine that has often been eccentric in its picks. I’ve been delighted to share the creativity of period design—such a rich bag of tricks! The best part: You can page through issues spanning 19 years of publication and be inspired anew, because the work is timeless, not trendy.
