Editor's Note



Summer’s here, and it’s time to celebrate! In honor of athome’s five-year anniversary, we created this Best of Design collector’s issue to mark the magazine’s milestone. The 120-page book looks back on some of the favorite rooms we’ve featured and looks ahead to helping readers make their homes better than ever.

Whether you’re craving a new color scheme or trying to size up a dining-room rug, you’ll find the advice (and inspiration) you need throughout this issue. For loads of ideas and eye candy in one fun feature, check out “50 Ways to Live Better athome,” page 46, pulled together by our smart new contributor, Riann Smith. The package reads like a who’s who in the world of design, with tips and trends from top local and global talent—everyone from Lynne Scalo to Lulu DK, Christopher Peacock to Celerie Kemble.  

And as this issue goes to print, our celebrity judges are hard at work determining some superlatives of the future:  the winners of this year’s A-List Awards. Visit our website, athomefc.com, to purchase tickets to the A-List event on September 14 at the Westport Country Playhouse.
