Features 

Summertime Bliss | Elegance and comfort play happily together in a new vacation home on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Outside, it’s a fresh take on classic Southern farmhouse style. Inside, it speaks to Gulf beauty in a refined, luxurious way.

Slice of Heaven | Golf and fishing during the day, barbecues and bonfires at night—life on Michigan’s Walloon Lake is pretty much perfect, especially in a home that puts a gorgeous, contemporary twist on traditional Arts and Crafts architecture.

Coasting Home | A Bucks County, Pennsylvania, couple leave their cares behind when they head to South Carolina’s Kiawah Island. But they never abandon their sense of style. It’s evident in their coastal home, where formal flair blends with woodsy warmth. 

Gray Lady | The relaxed elegance and soft palette of a Nantucket beach house play to the island’s nickname. The mood here is never somber, though. With bike rides, scalloping expeditions, and picnics filling the homeowners’ days, this casually sophisticated place is all about fun.
