With Andy Ross, Director of Sales and Marketing of Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, at Boston Common’s home design event which took place at the Boston Design Center.
Summer is a great time to get out and explore New England with day trips and long weekends. We are lucky to have so many great places at our fingertips– from beautiful beaches to mountains, lakes, and nature preserves.
Spring has been quite busy with all that has been happening around the city. The Four Seasons Hotel Boston hosted a reception to showcase the redesign of their rooms by designers Michael Booth and Alan Deal. We celebrated our home design issue and hosted a party at the Boston Design Center with our exclusive sponsors Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, FBN Construction, Pierce Boston, Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, Chateau d’Esclans, Effen Vodka, and Cruzan Rum. We got our engines started with Herb Chambers Alfa Romeo as they opened their new showroom with their state-of-the-art vehicles. Boston Common partnered with Gurney’s Newport Resort & Marina to kick-off Memorial Day weekend, and one of my personal favorite charity events of the year was the National Kidney Foundation Golf Classic Tournament, which was held in more than 40 cities around the country, with the finals in Pebble Beach, California. Every year, the Boston chapter plays at Boston Golf Club, one of the area’s finest courses.
Bob Ernst, President of FBN Construction, and I enjoyed ourselves at the annual Awards Gala celebrating the American Society of Interior Designers Annual at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
We welcome our cover star Téa Leoni, actress and the leading role in the drama series, Madam Secretary. Fun fact: Leoni was discovered in Boston at a national casting call and spent many summers in the Westport area.
We look forward to seeing everyone this season—both in the city and at our favorite vacation spots.
