White shingled, wooden houses with porches, Adirondack chairs, lighthouses, gray slate roofs, American flags, and boardwalks leading to the beach. This is what comes to mind when I think of New England Style. I have never been to the Hamptons or Cape Cod but they are firmly planted in my mind and there is a longing to go there one day and experience the American dream. That part of the world sums up the very essence of the good life to me - the sea, family and friends, dogs, good books, beautiful scenery, perfect houses, good food and wine.... one day I'll get there!
