Maine by Design
Celebrate the rugged, resourceful, eco-conscious Maine aesthetic and get a master class from Remodelista in translating this style into your own home. Tour ten exceptional, beautifully photographed houses, and discover the details that make a Maine house a Maine house—from floors painted in glossy boat paint to artful displays of nature-walk finds. Also included: simple, seasonal DIY projects, like fragrant balsam pillows; tips from local shopkeepers, chefs, and makers on living the Maine way; a collection of Remodelista’s thirty favorite Maine objects for the house (and porch); and design-centric itineraries for travelers planning a visit any time of year.
