We made the cover! Design New England Magazine

I was thrilled to learn that, not only would Design New England magazine be including a feature story on The Concord Green Healthy Home for its upcoming issue, the editors selected my European-style bath design for the cover.  

I think back to my plan for an open shower bath, with a wall mounted vanity and dual-flush toilet.  I used an unexpected mix of materials -- a pitched cobblestone-inspired floor tile, a wainscot of horizontal limestone plank reminiscent of weathered wood, upper walls tiled in classic white subway and punctuated with daylight-sharing clerestory windows, with a curved floating carrera marble vanity, all topped off with galvanized barn lights.  Part luxurious powder room, part outdoor shower, right?  Hmmm.  More than one person looked at me as if I was a bit crazy. :-)  I am happy to have held on to the vision.

Special thanks to Design New England's editor Gail Ravgiala, for believing in the project.   Can't wait to see Eric Roth's gorgeous photos of the rest of the interiors gracing the magazine's pages.

Look for the Jan/Feb 2012 issue the first week of January, available online (click "Current Issue") and in print.

Meanwhile, wishing you all a healthy and joyous holiday season, and a happy new year!



  1. Congratulations Lisa!!! I'm so mad, I was at Logan Airport yesterday and they didn't have this issue out yet, I would have recognized this room right away and bought it on the spot :)


  2. Thank you, Becky, for your continued enthusiasm about this home. Your feature story on was terrific!

    I am so proud of the design, and am glad to have it shared with a wider audience.

    Best to you.
