CTC&G September Covers

Marianne Howaston, CEO Letter SFCandGYou may have noticed that the cover of this issue is different from your neighbor’s. Our state is so full of wonderful homes and gardens, art and antiques, designers and architects, builders and retailers that when our editors are choosing content for our issues, we often have an embarrassment of riches leading to differing and passionate points of view.

Such was the case with this month’s cover image. Dubbed the “art issue,” it’s chockfull of stunning shots from art–based design projects. At the same time, the old Silvermine Tavern, at the heart of the Silvermine Historic District, has just been fully refurbished by Glazer Group. The entire endeavor (inn, tavern and more) has been renamed GrayBarns on the Silvermine River, and its eagerly awaited reveal has delivered a wealth of great photographs too.

What a nice dilemma to have! So we decided to produce two covers with about half showing a wall of artwork at the South Norwalk home of architect Bruce Beinfield and artist Carol Matyia Ross, while the rest show a cozy fireplace shot in one of the GrayBarns Inn guest rooms.

Regardless of your cover, the issue inside is exactly the same. Let me know what you think of yours!
