In the inaugural issue of Virginia Living House + Garden we introduce you to the state s most talented architects, interior designers and gardening gurus as well as tastemakers creating amazing textiles, furniture and accessories. In McLean, we find the mudroom of our dreams with heated floors and a flower-cutting station and at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards in North Garden we learn how a kitchen garden can be just as beautiful as it is functional. We also offer an agenda for must-do home and garden-centric workshops, shows and lectures all over the state, and take a look at what s trending in luxury bathroom design. We are also invited into the historic Port Republic estate of renowned landscape architect Rachel Lilly, and we get a peek inside the French manor-style home of an Oak Hill family who created a different color story in every room. Plus, we visit the elegant home of a Richmond family designed to fit the contours of a secluded Richmond wood.
