12 O C E A N H O M E M A G . C O M | F e b r u a r y + M a r c h 2 0 1 6 From the Editor When I sat down to write this special Editor's Letter, marking the start of Ocean Home's 10th anniversary year in 2016, I began searching for words that capture the essence of this unique magazine: exceptional coastal architecture; beautiful interior design; spectacular landscapes; oceanfront real estate; and five-star hotels, resorts and villas in some the world's most exotic destinations. But what I really want to convey can be summed up in two very simple words – thank you – to all the wonderful people who have helped us showcase a decade of design excellence that is the foundation stone of America's coveted coastal lifestyle. Ocean home design has never been more exciting, creative and innovative thanks to the talented designers who grace our pages each edition, and I'm grateful for their ongoing and invaluable support and encouragement. Most of all, and on behalf of the entire Ocean Home team, I want to thank you – our loyal readers – for sharing in this amazing journey of discovery. Here's to the next 10 years of luxury coastal home design, it's going to be a blast. THE WINNERS' CIRCLE Congratulations to renowned New England architect Patrick Ahearn, above, and the other 49 recipients of Ocean Home's inaugural OH50 Top Coastal Architects Award. The OH50, our very own Hall of Fame, is a unique portfolio of outstanding design talents, representing the finest coastal architects practicing today in the United States and Caribbean. Now it's the turn of coastal interior designers, those artful men and women who take the bones of new and existing oceanfront houses and turn them into warm and welcoming homes. Which first-rate designers made our OH50 List for 2016? Find out on page 66 and online at oceanhomemag. com/OH50designers/. A TOAST TO CHAMPAGNE Sincere thanks to Cameron Karger, general manager of The Point Resort – a magnificent lakefront retreat in upstate New York built by William Avery Rockefeller almost a century ago – who invited me to a special Moët Hennessy weekend during the holidays. Megan Libby, director of brand education at Moët Hennessy USA, hosted two unforgettable dinners and tastings of some of the world's finest vintage Champagne. We'll be featuring Megan and her personal advice and recommendations of the best Champagnes in the next issue of Ocean Home. Trust me, it's a story you won't want to miss. thepointsaranac.com and mhusa.com PHOTOGRAPH (EDITOR) BY MICHAEL BASU PHOTOGRAPH BY MATTHEW MILLMAN Andrew Conway Editor aconway@oceanhomemag.com A DECADE OF COASTAL DESIGN 2006–2016 We'd love to hear from you.
