July/August 2016 Country Living Magazine



I am honored to represent New Hampshire in the 50 Dream Rooms - Inspiring Decorating Ideas From Every State  issue of Country Living magazine on newsstands now.
Check it out!!





They chose the barn room, so here are a couple of summer photos from this year.  I added several antique Canton ginger jars to the mantel.  The painting under the glaze on the jars is very muted, almost washed out compared to the stronger blue and white colors you would normally expect to see.  The muted tones work well in the room, especially with the antique oil painting.




 The antique coffee table with more blue and white and lots of design books!

Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

  1. Joan,
    I saw your barn room in the latest issue of Country Living. It's truly one of my favorite rooms in your home, except maybe for the kitchen, oh and the master bedroom! Happy first day of summer.

  18. Congratulations! there could not be a prettier home in New Hampshire. How could they not pick yours for a magazine? Actually, there could not be a prettier home anywhere in my opinion.

  20. Yes...congratulations, Dan and Joan. A very well-deserved award. I often read your old posts and wonder if I have to stomach to go through a reno- like both of you did. I think not, but it's nice to dream. So happy for both of you. Bev

  21. Gotta go pick up an issue! My 7 year old son, when he had the opportunity to visit recently and saw the barn room, said, and I quote, "This ... room ... is ... BEAUTIFUL!" Pretty good for a raucous boy. Nanny says, "woof!" Update soon :)
