From the Editor: Fresh Start
If you’re like the staff of this magazine, you’ve been counting the days until spring. Yes, we love snow and skiing and ice-skating. And, yes, there’s something cozy about coming in from the chilly outdoors into a warm space, be it a café in town or back home after a long day. But spring opens up possibilities. Encourages the imagination. Gets you thinking about what could be. And that’s not as cozy as it is exciting!
That’s why this issue is perfect to unveil our totally new look. We had a makeover—flip through, and you’ll see that the magazine has been redone, cover to cover. New design. New departments. And even more coverage of what you love most about Fairfield: shopping, dining, news, people, events, home life and more.
The redesign dovetails nicely with our issue’s theme: Design. Inside you’ll find a feature about a magnificent home that was completely redecorated in a couple of months—that’s the fastest I have ever heard about. Yet you wouldn’t know it, because all of the changes maximize the bones of the house, while also making the space comfortable and livable for its new owner. This issue also offers fashion pages to inspire your new spring wardrobe, and a garden that is lush with gorgeous, timelessly stylish peonies. As if that weren’t enough, we stopped into one of my favorite places: Southport Galleries. I find its space both invigorating and welcoming, because while expanding our minds, it also fits harmoniously within the history-proud village. Next time you go, look not only at the intriguing art on display, but also at the gallery itself; it used to be the town hardware store. It’s now bright, colorful and tasteful, full of new life. That’s progress I find inspiring.
I hope you love our redesign. Fairfield Living is gearing up to bring you great stories in the coming year, and I want you to be proud of your hometown magazine. I think this new look really suits you.
