The Guide

Home products in trendy, tie-dye motifs, stylish camper vans for sale in Portland, Turkish rugs abound at this new Freeport shop, artful Maine-made hardware, artists reimagine a Phippsburg Grange hall, this ornate Westbrook Queen Anne was once corporate housing, a gabled Penobscot fixer-upper needs your help, and candid answers to your home dilemmas.

Get Inspired

We’re crushing on this small MDI camp with an outsize view, a Rangeley prefab gets polished up, five minutes with Portland potter Avril Williams, a city carriage house becomes a chic guest suite, new botanical textiles by a Camden painter, powder rooms that make a statement, and a Northport shipping-container compound stops traffic.
