Sea­son of Change

Cottages & Bungalows - - Contents -

FALL IS MY FA­VORITE TIME TO TRAVEL. The weather is cooler, but long days still linger; the crowds have ebbed, and the land­scapes are full and golden. I got mar­ried in the fall, so ev­ery year our an­niver­sary beck­ons us to pause the work sched­ule and make time to visit dif­fer­ent parts of the world. It’s a won­der­ful time in be­tween the en­ergy of sum­mer and the frenzy of the hol­i­days. In­spired by my trav­el­ing, I’m al­ways amazed at how re­freshed I feel when we come back home. I look at home with a fresh pair of eyes, full of op­ti­mism and ea­ger to turn the house into a place that will soon wel­come friends and fam­ily.

This is­sue is a com­bi­na­tion of those two ideas. We visit homes in the coun­try and in lo­ca­tions where the house is in­ex­tri­ca­bly tied to and in­formed by the land­scape. And, oh, how beau­ti­ful they are, from the Carolina lakes to Vir­ginia farm­land to crisp, rus­tic coun­try­side in Canada. We even in­clude a roundup of our fa­vorite places to en­joy fall fo­liage across the U.S. So, get out there and take in all that na­ture has to of­fer, and take it home with you as you ready your nests for the com­ing sea­son.
