Editor’s Notes: May 2022

After the Masters ends, there arrives the month of May to bridge the gap between spring and summer. May is the time of year for graduation parties and college kids returning home for summer jobs. May 4 is National Renewal Day, or a day to recharge in subtle or big ways. It is a reminder that creativity begins in the home or garden. 

Along with our fresh redesign in this issue, we share ways to energize the home and rejuvenate the garden. Whether choosing a paint color for an interior room, patterned textiles for the table or showy flowers for an outdoor landscape, we will guide you with the latest trends. Our 2022 Best of Home listing provides businesses from house remodeling to nurseries and interior designer firms, all located in the Savannah River Region area, with professionals who can help turn ideas into realities. 

We also throw the spotlight on some fun, stylish homes, allowing readers to see what local residents are up to — like one couple starting a mini farm and another constructing an Italian-style man cave. There is a glimpse of a rare antique find and tricks for navigating estate sales. And, lastly, we share a story about a former Augusta resident who found his way back home to become the president of a leading real estate company. 

With the May issue of Augusta magazine, the fanfare of home designs and local stories is exactly what is needed to clear the cobwebs of winter, so you can jump head long down the road of summer possibilities!
