The Guide

Cheerful terrazzo finds, Maine stoneware to collect, local pros sound off on Pantone’s Colors of the Year, HGTV’s Portland “dream home,” the city’s artisan-centric Venn + Maker gets an update, a  Cape Elizabeth lumberyard dedicated to local products, the backstory on a Rockland congressman’s Queen Anne, a Sears kit house in Washburn needs a hero, small houses for sale!, and candid answers to your home dilemmas.

Get Inspired

We’re crushing on this St. George cottage on stilts, a night-and-day makeover for a Kennebunkport bedroom, five minutes with Colby artist programs director Daisy Bousquet-Derosiers, Portlander Kels Haley’s sweet new textile line, and inside a fanciful, “shoppable” Kennebunk Airbnb.
