Editor's Note

Spring can’t come soon enough this year. While we wait eagerly—or should I say desperately—for sunnier days to arrive, this issue reminds me that greener times really are right around the corner.

The Realtors we spoke with at our recent roundtable, for instance, agree that the market is perking up. For their advice on getting the best deals (whether you’re a buyer or seller), check out the story on page 72.

Speaking of hot properties, we captured some incredible landscapes at their peak last spring and summer. Of special note is our cover story (“Higher Ground,” page 36), which features the historic Greenwich home of Alease and Paul Tallman, the last remaining McKim, Mead, and White structure in the town. The house is complemented by lovely gardens that have been cared for over the years by landscape’s leading men. We’re so grateful to Alease and her landscape designer, Phillip Watson, for sharing it with us. 

Even more refreshing news: athome was just honored with a Folio Eddie Award for Best Home/Shelter Editorial. This award recognized the brilliant storytelling of our contributing writer Suzanne Gannon. We’re very fortunate to have her on our team.

While I mention awards, don’t miss out on the chance to win one yourself. Our design competition, the A-List Awards, is now accepting submissions. Starting March 1, you can enter your projects online at mofflymedia.com/alist. Happy spring!
