The Guide

Pretty, earth-friendly home products, these plant/lifestyle shops are part of a growing trend, bring nubby beauty to your space with woven wall hangings, a Portland glamping spot mixes style with 19th-century military history, an Eliot ADU debuts on HGTV with an Emmy winner, Rangeley’s first bank is a Classical Revival cutie on Main Street, and a fearless renovator can help this Queen City Queen Anne shine again.

Get Inspired

We’re crushing on this prow-shaped Machiasport place, color and clever solutions transform a Sedgwick cottage, five minutes with Bremen ceramicist Alice Nasto, a new owner is bowled over by his Kennebunkport dome-shaped home, how a Norridgewock powerhouse became an artful residence, and, in Monmouth, a tree-house compound takes root.
