Who doesn’t need a little inspiration? Mother Nature has done her part—the delightful days of May and June are here to help create a pleasant setting for day-dreaming or, for you more driven types, goal setting. The rest is up to you. This May/June issue offers lots of inspiration for you to think big about what you want and what you need—forget about just settle for what is. We want you to have something even better. To begin, we walk you through a glorious private garden designed in 1939—but with a twist. It was recently updated with a personal sense of peace that the homeowner had envisioned for the space. Now, it’s her perfect escape. The contemporary design embraces a modern mix of symmetry and fluidity. Like any art, landscaping is personal expression and, thus, has the power to surprise and delight anyone who experiences it. We also discovered endless dreams and goals at the annual June Benefit Horse Show, which is held at the ninety-year-old Fairfield County Hunt Club. The event attracts world-class athletes as well as first-time competitors—all pursuing an athletic accomplishment and hoping for a trophy or ribbon. If that weren’t inspirational enough, the show benefits the […]

The low-down on skincare products for men to prepare for spring
This spring is going to be playful. While pulling together this issue, our creative talent has poured over what’s hot in fashion and home design, and we see a trend: lighten up about brightening up. Have fun with bold, bright and optimistic colors, mix them, and watch them pop on white. The timing is perfect. Spring is at our side, whispering sweet nothings about cheery flowers and puffy white clouds. We need such promises of renewal in our fashions and in our homes. Besides, spring never shies away from boasting vibrant colors; why should we? The gorgeous cover shot, taken by photographer Stacy Bass, beautifully captures these elements. It’s a mixture of reserve and verve—and we at the office fell under its spell the moment we laid eyes on it. This amazing room and the whole home, flooded with natural light, mixes crisp white walls with a collection of bright artwork—and we have pages and pages to show you how gorgeously it succeeds. Then, in our feature “Coasting,” we show you four magnificent estates with big personalities and one important shared attribute: an enviable view of the water. We all had a great time finding these places, because, we admit, […]

Extra baking tips from Michelle Jaffee
On october 29, when hurricane Sandy made landfall on the East Coast, I was busy. I was filling the car with gas, getting cash out of the ATM, buying canned food and prepping fresh food with a long shelf life (carrots, cauliflower, apples). I got out the safety candles and matches, the crank flashlight, and the windup radio that can recharge a cell phone. I filled lined baskets with fresh water in the tub. I tucked the lawn furniture under the deck and dragged the garbage cans into the garage. I took down the Halloween decorations, knowing it would be canceled again. I vacuumed, did all of the laundry and took a long, hot shower. I posted reminders to our readers about how to prep, especially when it comes to seniors, children and pets, and retweeted relevant posts to our followers. I called friends to check on their plans. I knew I might be mocked—my friends and neighbors don’t get rattled. I grew up in a beach community where flooding is common. I know complacency—like hurricane parties; like seeing my older brother raise his arms defiantly as storm-whipped waves crash against the sea wall and splash high over his fingertips; […]
