Jenna Talbott, editor in chief of New England Home, noted, “Once again, we received an astounding number of talented nominees for this year’s 5 Under 40 Awards.

We can’t wait to follow the winners and cheer on their continued success.”

Kathy Bush-Dutton, the publisher of New England Home, adds, “We are thrilled to celebrate fifteen years of honoring New England’s rising stars in residential design!

Additionally, two of our winners are part of firms led by esteemed New England Design Hall of Fame members. This underscores the exceptional talent we’ve spotlighted for the past decade and a half and highlights these young designers’ enduring success and growth in their professional journeys”
