BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boston Globe Media announced today the publication of the premiere issue of Design New England: The Magazine of Splendid Homes and Gardens. The 108-page magazine has been mailed to 40,000 high net-worth households within Greater Boston and a list of 4,500 architects, custom builders, interior designers, materials suppliers and retailers. Additionally, 11,000 copies are available through newsstands and airports.
The issue presents some of the most beautifully designed homes and gardens in New England, including features on the sleek modern architecture of a Penobscot Bay home; the interior design of a Boston apartment that showcases museum-quality art; and a stunning garden in Dover, MA that has as its focal point an incredibly detailed stone folly of New England fieldstone.
In a note to readers, Editor Jill Connors commented, “In covering the stunning interiors, architecture, and gardens being created today in New England, I marvel at the fact that this part of the country contains the roots of America’s most iconic architectural forms – from practical saltbox to stately Georgian mansions. And I delight in the tidbits that we discover.”
The glossy oversized magazine also includes sophisticated looks at kitchen and bath design, antiques, wood floors, crown moldings, table lamps and other interior design elements that create a home’s distinctive style. The views of several prominent designers can be found throughout. In one feature, designer David Webster shares his thoughts on Boston’s morphing design identity.
Advertising within the premiere issue exceeded expectations, with high-end advertisers representing a full range of categories, including architects, custom builders, interior designers, home furnishing retailers, materials suppliers, and appliance and electronics vendors. “Design New England has been well received by advertisers whose services appeal to an audience with sophisticated tastes,” said Samuel P. Martin, Chief Advertising Officer of Boston Globe Media.
Design New England will publish six times in 2007, with its next issue in January, and can also be found at www.designnewengland.com. The magazine is part of Boston Globe Media’s efforts to create a diverse portfolio of media products. Jay Fogarty, vice president of Strategic Planning for Boston Globe Media, states, “Design New England is the first of several niche publications we plan to publish to satisfy the needs of many businesses that need to reach deep into narrow audience segments.”
