{Off Shoots} Beekman 1802 Boys

by Anh-Minh on January 30, 2014

Meg and I have had the idea for a “changes and transformations” issue for quite some time now. And when we first heard from Brent Ridge—one-half of the Beekman 1802 Boys—and saw the photos of the home he shares with Josh Kilmer-Purcell, we knew they would be a perfect fit for the issue. (Which is No. 14, the current release that is just hitting mailboxes and store shelves now.)

Brent is a physician who was worked for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Josh was once an advertising art director by day and a drag queen by night. Together, they now operate a farm in upstate New York, which is their residence as well. They also appear on the TV show The Fabulous Beekman Boys, won season 21 of The Amazing Race, and have written several memoirs and cookbooks (The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook is their latest).

See what I mean about them being a perfect fit for Issue No. 14? We couldn’t publish all of the great photos that Alec Hemer took of their home and mercantile in the magazine, so today we’re sharing some additional shots here. Be sure to visit the Beekman 1802 Boys website to find out more about the couple. And right now, the Boys are running a special giveaway: three winners will each receive an Anthology subscription. To enter for your chance to win, visit their giveaway page and leave a comment with a change or transformation that you experienced. (The deadline to enter is tomorrow!)
