"I am dedicated to curating and sharing ideas, information and inspiration with those looking to create their own personal vision of Fine Living or a simplified luxury lifestyle."
Hello and welcome to New England Fine Living. This is Linda and I'm the voice, curator, and creative force behind New England's lifestyle blog and website, New England Fine Living. My love for and roots to New England run deep. I have lived in New England (Massachusetts to be exact) my whole life, as did much of my family line who came to the Eastern shores of New England in the late 1600's and early 1700's.
By trade, I'm an interior designer, party stylist and event planner who also ran a lifestyle retail store and separate marketing to help brand and promote other entrepreneurs. For decades, I introduced New England business owners to the masses by way of creating public events and consumer trade shows due to my passion for helping other New England entrepreneurs and businesses. If that was not enough, I also held my real estate license and flipped several homes.
The Story Behind New England Fine Living
Since the early days of dial-up (yes, I just dated myself), I have been harnessing the power of the internet to reach clients and customers worldwide. In the 90's, I unknowingly created one of the first luxury lifestyle websites in the country with a focus on New England; I just thought it would be a fun way to share share design, entertaining and travel destinations with my clients and customers.
As a serial entrepreneur, In 2004 the lightbulb started to glow over my head once emails started coming in from all over the world asking me about New England ("You've Got Mail"). Due to this, I created a second company website and blog to replace my time consuming and expensive multi-page-newsletter. The newsletter was simple version of a magazine (did I mention I used to hand-draw magazines as a young child and sell them door-to-door?). It was then, New England Fine Living was born as a separate entity to my design and retail business.
New England Fine Living's Print Magazine
Over the years, NewEnglandFineLiving.com became one of the top visited lifestyle websites for New England, but I still had a childhood dream I wanted to fulfill. After closing my design studio and retail store, a few lifestyle changes due to health issues, and moving to a new area of Massachusetts, I decided to "start over". I knew nothing about publishing, but jumped in, both feet first, and created my dream New England lifestyle publication. I was finally the proud owner and publisher of a beautiful New England lifestyle magazine that focused on decorating and entertaining, along with showcasing our quintessential New England style homes and beautiful historic towns.
After two years of creating and publishing a successful New England lifestyle magazine, I was informed I needed to "slow down" yet again, "ugh", so here I am... my full attention has been returned on this new website and blog, while I enjoy my curated New England life as a wife, mother, and luxury lifestyle entrepreneur and lifestyle blogger at a slower pace.
Will there be another publication? I can guarantee you I have something up my sleeve, so stay tuned!

Sponsors and Items for Sale
New England Fine Living is a labor of love.... it always has been. I enjoy sharing, without compensation, information about things I do, the places I have visited, and people I meet. That said, New England Fine Living is a business that has many expenses behind it; some of the businesses mentioned are paid sponsors or have offered a product or service in exchange for a mention. Some of the items for sale are from affiliate sites that generate a commission or they are items I have curated and sell from our office. I only share what I myself enjoyed or would like to try and my reviews are honest. Items I don't like or that do not relate to our lifestyle brand, do not have a place on New England Fine Living.
