About Us


The Berkshire region is famous for its breathtaking beauty that over the years has inspired a tradition of gracious living. This distinctive style is reflected in how we live our lives, how we appreciate nature and the arts, how we prepare beautiful meals and how we enjoy fine craftsmanship and design.

BerkshireStyle is an online magazine that celebrates this richness and vitality of its architects, designers, artists and businesses who have made their mark preserving the Berkshire aesthetic. The pages of Berkshire Style hold a wealth of local information inviting us all to play an active role in this beautiful community.

If you have a passion for a refined simplicity, regional charm and good taste you are in the right place. After all, what is life without style?
