As summer sails along in all her blue-sky glory, we look for moments to immerse ourselves in these breezy, carefree days. Our July/August issue offers the perfect escape for those who find joy and serenity in this sun-kissed season’s boundless bliss. We visit tastemaker Kelli Delaney Kot’s gracious Hamptons home and gardens, see how beauty was restored to a neglected cottage, tour a historic home brimming with antiques, and glean inspiration from busy entrepreneurs who make time for shared creative pursuits. You’ll be awakened to the allure of Leelanau County, Michigan, and see why The Inn at Little Washington in Virginia makes our list of must-visit destinations. Plus, our palate-pleasing menus tempt taste buds with sweet and savory selections for afternoon tea and celebrate the French culinary art of charcuterie with promises of effortless entertaining.
