Editor's Note

The pool house featured in this issue’s cover story (“Entertainment Factor,” p. 40) is so chic and inviting, I’m ready to move in. Decorated by Dovecote’s Sarah Kaplan, it showcases the designer’s signature style, which mixes antiques from Paris flea markets with pieces from every era. The property’s owners, Donna Craft and her family, regularly open their doors to guests as they host fundraising events to support local charities—a fact that helps to assuage my pool-house envy just a bit.

Meanwhile, there’s a close-to-home cause that athome is proud to support too: Habitat for Humanity of Fairfield County. Our A-List Awards benefit Habitat, and you can get involved just by entering your projects. This year’s competition promises to be a winning one, affording designers, architects, builders, and landscape architects a chance to have their work assessed by our all-star judges. Along with veteran judges Celerie Kemble and Eric Cohler, we’ve recruited Bunny Williams, Jonathan Adler, Vicente Wolf and architects Jeremiah Eck and Paul MacNeely this year. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to get your work in front of the best in the business—and help a terrific cause at the same time. We look forward to seeing your entries!
