Editor’s Note

This issue of OHJ is filled with reader picks, projects brought to you by jury or by popular vote, all-time favorites, and extra product coverage. Here’s the background: Our house tours present award winners for the Best DIY Restoration (submitted by homeowners) and the Best Restoration by Designer (submitted by design firms or their clients). A jury of editors and contributors selected three projects in each category, which then went onto Facebook for a popular vote. The winning houses? A remarkably preserved, period Victorian farmhouse on Long Island, New York. And a stylish American Foursquare in Minneapolis with a reworked family room and kitchen.

The feature in our Restore section is a compilation of great tips, culled from readers and experts. They fall into four topic areas: Paint, Walls & Ceilings. Exteriors & Hardscape. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling. Floors & Structural Repairs. Those are the top four categories for upcoming projects reported by readers in the most recent Reader Survey. The editors added critical tools and materials.

The Design-section feature takes us to the home of Donna Pizzi and Philip Clayton–Thompson, long-time contributors to this magazine, whose own modest kitchen, shyly submitted, won kudos as the Best Budget Makeover. In a retrospective feature, we also juried favorite kitchens and bathrooms published over the years, putting them to a public vote. Our respondents adore color, as you’ll see in their choice of a strawberry kitchen and a moody blue bath.

For Favorite Things, we asked colleagues in the restoration marketplace to tell us what really sells: “Send us a picture of your top seller, or your hottest recent launch,” we said. You’ll find some very pretty and timeless favorites here.
