While freezing gray days might make us all want to huddle inside until the cold season passes, anyone who lives in Portsmouth is lucky enough to experience a beautifully thriving community where there are wonderful events to tempt us from hearth and home, regardless of the weather. With such gorgeous spaces and engaging people, there is no end to the events offered in Portsmouth, even in the seemingly quietest months of the year — and there’s no better New Year’s resolution than getting to know such a town even better.

We had the absolute pleasure of renovating Wentworth by the Sea, a historic hotel with stunning vistas and design that encourages relaxation and refinement. Pair this place with the 2016 Winter Wine Festival, and you have everything you could possibly need for the most dazzling days of the winter season. Kicking off January 22nd, and continuing until February 21st, this festival is New England’s premier winter destination for the complete wine experience, with tastes suited from the amateur to the connoisseur, whether you seek oysters, bubbles, or jazz brunches. Hosted by one of our favorite past projects and a true gem of Portsmouth, winter just became infinitely more enticing.

It’s hard to find the motivation to get out on the town on an icy winter weeknight. Thankfully, Row 34 has a delicious guest chef series in store to help us power through. Every Tuesday from now until March, Row 34 is bringing chefs from the best restaurants throughout New England to make special additions to the menu. Guest chefs include Louis DiBiccari of Tavern Road (1/19), Ben Hasty of Thistle Pig (1/26), and Jamie Bissonnette of Coppa & Toro (2/16). It’s a truly mouthwatering way to spend your evening!

Another favorite project, the Music Hall Loft, has truly earned its place as one of Portsmouth’s most electric venues with this month’s lineup of live performances and special screenings. Whatever you may love, be it the brilliant comedy of Marina Franklin to the thoughtfulness of the award-winning film Mustang, there is the perfect event for anyone and everyone in these next few weeks. Relish these winter evenings in the sumptuous warmth of the lounge, and enjoy a night out with those you love.

With the holidays past, we all might want to just collapse into the couch and stay as warm as possible. But with a town this ideal, you might as well get out on the town and discover some new favorite wine, amazing food, incredible performances, and (best of all) good company.

There are many things to consider when you make an addition or large renovation to your home. It’s your home, so of course any addition should be something that you and your family will be able to enjoy for years to come. But it’s also smart to think about the big picture when making a change.

When it comes to return on investment, all home additions are not created equal. It’s nice to daydream about adding a sun room, swimming pool, or state of the art kitchen, but unfortunately those additions are not always the most practical when it comes time to sell. Here, we’ll share some of the best value additions you can make to your home.

The TMS Team, December 2015

Is it just us, or has 2015 simply flown by? This time of year is a wonderful opportunity to sit back and reflect on everything that has happened over the past twelve months before diving into the new year. We spent some time reminiscing this week, and we’re pleased to say that 2015 was a banner year for TMS, filled with numerous noteworthy accomplishments both professional and personal. We’re excited to share some highlights with you today, and hope that 2016 brings just as many wonderful memories!

In our opinion, there’s nothing better than being able to take someone’s vision for their dream home and bring it to life. That’s why we’re so thrilled that Coastal Home Magazine chose our Field of Dreams home as the cover feature for their Autumn 2015 issue. Collaboration was key in this project — the homeowners worked closely with TMS’s principle architect Bill Soupcoff and Michael Cebula of Cebula Design to ensure everything fell into place just right. Coastal Home delves into the details in their current issue, but we couldn’t help but share some highlights…
