Deb Cohen never could have guessed that her innocent house stalking hobby would captivate over fifty thousand history buffs and design enthusiasts on social media. Now, Cohen’s wildly popular Instagram feed, The Front Door Project, will be curated and collected into a stunning coffee table book published by Union Park Press in Spring 2019.
This isn’t just about house envy, though. As she does in her Instagram feed, Cohen shares her enchanting photos as well as the fascinating architectural history of the region, always underscoring the importance and value of historic pres-ervation. From cottages to capes, colonials to Victorians, MAKING AN ENTRANCE celebrates the weathered, enduring treasures throughout New England. With an eye for detail, Cohen has a knack for finding the extraordinary along New England’s main streets and country roads, showing her deep appreciation for homeowners who have thoughtfully maintained the heritage of their historic homes. As Deb Cohen is the first to point out, each vibrantly painted door, thoughtful garden bed, or whimsical knocker tells a story about the house and New England’s beloved history.
Started The Front Door Project a few short years ago as a way to motivate herself to get outside, exercise, and pay more attention to her surroundings. Today, she has over 50K dedicated followers and has been featured online and in print by some of the leading design magazines! She lives in West Hartford, Connecticut with her family.
