From the John Riggins Private Tour article:

Football legend John Riggins keeps souvenirs of his career as a running back for the Washington Redskins in the basement media room of his newly built home. Riggins’s team helmet sits on a coffee table and, leaning against the walls, framed photos and newspaper clippings document his pivotal role in Super Bowls of the 1980s.

These days, though, “The Diesel” is more interested in talking about his current venture than past glories. After stints as an actor and sports commentator, he now hosts his own television show on Comcast SportsNet Washington called “Riggo on the Range.” The episodes combine hunting and fishing adventures with cooking game caught in the wild.

Further magazine highlights include Simply Chic, where interior designer Kristin Peake pairs tone-on-tone textures for a clean, classic aesthetic; Past Perfect, where a design team pays homage to an historic home with a new, Shingle-style abode; Back to Nature, where Mark McInturff designs a modern retreat in the woods; Clean Slate, where Nestor Santa-Cruz imparts an elegant and eclectic vibe to a renovated Chevy Chase Colonial; Design Fusion where architect Reena Racki expands a 1930s cottage into a dynamic, contemporary home.

Datebook keeps you abreast of the latest design events and art happenings. And as always, this issue's Indulgences tempts you with the best of the good life in travel, toys, fashion and food.
