We love Juliska … especially the Field of Flowers collection, which could not be more appropriate for this time of year. Inspired by the beautifully illustrated botanicals in height-of-season colors, it’s tempting to take them outdoors for a summer picnic. Thank you, Juliska for already thinking of that and supplying everything. Readers: Just add food!

Field of Flowers Party Plates

Lynda Simonton, Online and Market Editor

Last month I attended a New England Home event hosted at CH Newton in Falmouth, Massachusetts. It was a lively evening and a silent auction with items donated by local artisans and businesses added to the festive atmosphere. I was very fortunate to have the winning bid for a stunning coffee table designed by Gustavo Silva at Beacon Millwork. Thank you Gustavo!

The table is generously sized and the unique design adds much-needed interest to my living room. The piece is so beautiful even my teenage boys were impressed with the craftsmanship (and that is saying something). All proceeds from the auction went to support Emerson House, a residential and extended care facility for women detoxifying from alcohol and drug addiction so I could purchase the table guilt-free!
