The ever-fabulous Beekman Boys (Dr. Brent Ridge and author Josh Kilmer-Purcell) are not ones to let the holidays slip by without festooning their glorious digs with the most gorgeous of trim. And who better to help them than the editors at Country Living magazine? Thankfully, in the current issue (December/January) we can all experience the exquisite results. The feature article by Joshua Lyon traces the urban couple's history at the Beekman farm/mansion and how they have come to represent a new era of prosperity for the town of Sharon Springs, which only several years ago was a forgotten ghost town with a storied past, complete with boarded up hotels and ramshackle cabins sinking into the underbrush. You can read about my visit to the town last year and my evening with Josh by clicking here.
That's their living room on the cover. On the magazine's splash page, the Beekman is shown at night with its windows all aglow.
Lush photographs by Lucas Allen and holiday styling by Karin Lidbeck-Brent come together to create some magical holiday scenes. I wanted to share some of the magic here, but you can read the full article in the magazine or by clicking here to read the article online. You can, of course, find Brent and Josh on Planet Green on their reality show, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, or see what they're developing for their company Beekman 1802 at their website.
