Our annual Home & Real Estate Guide is at the printer, and we have a sneak peek, here.
The print version of the Home & Real Estate Guide comes out next week, and we’re having a party to celebrate! Join us at Design Distillery in Federal Hill to get your copy, meet our editors and enjoy food from Baba’s and Little Havana and drink from Pinehurst Wine Shoppe. We’ll donate $20 to Ellicott City flood victim relief for every person who joins us.
Read Editor-in-Chief Cynthia McIntyre’s editor’s note to learn what’s inside this year’s issue:
The Baltimore Fishbowl Home & Real Estate Guide is a project we look forward to all year long. As I visit houses for the Hot House column, I see many beautiful homes. From a fixer-upper in Hampden to a beautifully renovated Bolton Hill church, to a historic farm in the county, Baltimore has such a wealth of housing stock that it can be hard to decide which projects to share with our readers.
For 2018, we have chosen a Federal Hill condo whose owners were downsizing from a larger home in The Orchards, a move that required a complete change of style (and furniture). Writer Kit Waskom Pollard has captured the highlights of the experience, and we hope you will take inspiration from the success of their city-centric adventure.
In a different vein, we offer a peek at the in-the-works concept house being built by the founder of the non-profit architectural salvage company, Second Chance. Built on the foundations of a dated colonial near the Loch Raven reservoir, it demonstrates the possibilities of using repurposed materials to add character to newly built construction.
Before you get rid of all your old “brown furniture,” read Meg Fielding’s article about the modern way with antiques, which have not lost their power to make a home richer and more cultivated. And if you are even thinking of redoing your kitchen, consult our report on kitchen trends.
The winds of style that blow through the world of home design are mysterious and ever-changing. Our job is to put them into context and make them relevant to your own home projects, big or small. Hopefully, we have done that.
