Show Business: 8 Highlights of The Resource Home Show

Last week’s Resource Home Show, held at The Woodland in Maplewood, New Jersey, was a reminder of how much we missed gatherings like this during the pandemic. Design NJ is a media partner of this show, and we were thrilled to support a home-design function taking place right here in the Garden State. Here’s a sampling of what makes this show such a wonderful “resource” for homeowners. (All photos: Aimee Herring Ryan of
