Just In: TRADHhome Early Spring 2014

The digital edition of Traditional Home, called TRADhome came out last week. This is an online only version of the magazinef that features less established and up-and-coming designers. In 2012’s TRADhome, I wrote about a home designed by Palmer Weiss—my blog post here—and in the 2013 “Great Kitchens” edition, I wrote about designer Liz Caan’s color-filled dining room, blogged here.

TRADhome 2014 extensively showcases homes designed by these four designers: Tamara Kaye-Honey, Charles de Lisle, and Joe Lucas and Parrish Chilcoat of Lucas Studio, and Taylor Borsari. The theme is color, and as you’ll see, there’s plenty of it.

Just In: 2012 New Trad Designers

Last month, San Francisco-based designer Palmer Weiss, whose work I adore, asked if would submit her work to Traditional Home for its Trad Home New Designers contest. (Trad Home is the magazine’s digital edition). The house we submitted is absolutely gorgeous, and I’m happy to say she won!

The May issue of the print magazine will feature an announcement with everyone’s photos, and the projects of the ten winners will be published in the spring edition of  Trad Home online. The bloggers who nominated the designers will write the accompanying stories. I’ve already did my interviews with Palmer and the homeowner, and will be working on crafting the feature all day today.

Congrats Palmer, and congratulations to the other New Trad winners.
