With spring on the horizon, I am proud to share another special issue of blvd. with you. This luxury publication features the best of style & fashion, design & decor, dining and so much more, all in one place. You’ll notice the larger page size of this publication (we call it a broadsheet), which complements this kind of luxury.
With interior trends as the main focus of our spring issue, we rounded up the latest trends in smart kitchen appliances. These high-tech innovations are changing how we interface with the heart of the home. We also caught up with interior designer Robyn Baumgarten, who shared her expert tips on creating a welcoming living space. If you’re looking for a refreshing palette, consider adding this year’s Pantone color, classic blue, to your decor. We decode the deeper meaning behind the calming hue.
Springtime is prime time for home renovations. Need some guidance choosing the right professional for the job? We caught up with Jean Brownhill, founder and CEO of Sweeten, who shares her checklist for hiring the right general contractor.
Our blvd. II lifestyles section features the hottest looks of the season. Jimmy Choo’s recent Venus evening clutch is perfect for an evening out on the town while a bold print is just the ticket for getting out of your comfort zone. You can develop a real appetite while shopping, so it’s a good thing we spotlighted one of Mineola’s most delicious restaurants. If you happen to be motoring or walking by Biscuits and Barbeque, it may look like just another diner. But once you enter the door, you’ve entered a wonderland of bayou and barbecue cuisine.
Get ready to cruise in the HOV lane. Believe it or not, you don’t even need to have passengers during rush hour to pass the insane traffic. We’ll show you the next generation of electric cars that you’ll actually want to drive.
I hope you enjoy blvd. as much as we have enjoyed creating it, and I wish you a refreshing spring season.
