Maybe it's because I'm a New England girl, but this Rockport, ME waterfront property that's featured in the October issue of AD has me feeling hopeful that changes are afoot for this venerable, but dated, magazine. This spread is fresh and appealing, light of touch and long on personality. It looks like a space people actually live in, or would like to visit.
Nothin' but view... It can be very cold and dark on the Maine waterfront, even in summer. The bright white house will likely always feel light and airy and I'm liking the warming touch of the leather sofa.
This is the guest room. Although I personally don't love waking up with the sun, for a view like this, it would be worth it!

Our most recent Skirted Roundtable discussion focused on the changes at the top of most of the shelter magazines still on the stands, including Architectural Digest. Margaret Russell (formerly of Elle Decor) takes over as e-i-c shortly and I'm personally hoping to see more New England design gracing the pages of all the magazines and I think we're all hoping for some injection of a beating heart in AD. This spread is a good start.
