Yankee Magazine spotlights Retro Renovation

retro renovation in yankee magazineWoot! The September/October issue of Yankee Magazine features a six-page spread on guess who’s kitchen … and house … and most importantly, the Retro Renovation tribe. Yes, that is me you spy rockin’ the retro polka dots. 

yankee-coverFor those of you outside of New England, Yankee is the premier regional magazine covering travel and lifestyle — read by 1.7 million readers nationwide. The story — starts on page 48 — is all wonderful publicity for our cause: Cultivating ever more widespread love for the many varieties of (mostly) humble homes built all across America after World War II.

If you are in New England and want to grab a copy, this leaf-peeping issue of Yankee is now on newsstands. For those of you outside the area, Yankee tells me there will be an online feature at some point this month or next. I’ll add a link as soon as it’s up.

    Congrats Pam and Kate!! I want to get my hands on that issue!!! It’s wonderful how you have made such a difference in so many homes and lives. RR deserves to be a nationally known go-to hot spot!!! I can see in the future – you and Kate on a cool little RR talk show!!!! :)

    Congratulations! I would love to see Pam with a show on HGTV. It’s so disheartening to watch some of these shows especially the kitchen makeover shows in which they destroy the most beautiful retro kitchens. It would be nice to see a program that showcases the homes we see on this website and how people are restoring these types of homes.
