I spent some very cold weeks this spring sorting through photos taken last summer and editing stories about spending time by the barbecue. Now it finally feels like the warm weather is upon us, and we launch the Summer edition of East Coast Living in just a few weeks. Here’s what you’ll find inside:

Our décor story highlights the abundant ways you can use chalk-style paint to refresh furnishings and accents in your home.

This paint has a reputation for rustic looks, but the folks from Carte Blanche Upcycled Furniture & Accessories in Moncton, New Brunswick, and Rusty Hinges in Halifax share with us their tips to find the finish that’s right for your home.

Our two homes features will transport you to a 1950s windmill-turned-home by entrepreneur Mandy Rennehan in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and a family cottage that expanded to fit a family of seven in Souris, Prince Edward Island.

Sharing food and clinking glasses outdoors with family and friends is one of the best parts of the season. In our “Eating In” section, Valerie Mansour shows you how to barbecue pizza (with recipes from Mother’s Pizza in Halifax) and libations expert Craig Pinhey highlights the abundance of wild fruit wines made in Atlantic Canada.

This issue is a first for Newfoundland writer-photographer duo Emily Deming and Ken Holden. Their story, “New Newfoundland cuisine,” presents reimagined ways to enjoy traditional dishes and ingredients, and includes some delicious looking recipes.

Watch for it on newsstands in mid-June, and in newspapers across the region June 13-18. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for sneak peeks over the next few weeks and subscribe to our newsletter for online exclusive stories all year long.
