Why I Live Here
Reader Bob Dennis settles in the beloved southern Maine community he’s been photographing for 26 years.
Swinging tasseled finds, putting the Color of the Year into practice, Portland’s hip new hostel, 19th-century maritime crafts to collect, roadtripping through the Queen City, the backstory on an 1893 world’s fair pavilion, rare landmark buildings on the market, a storied Colonial Revival in need of saving, and advice on your home and garden conundrums.
We’re crushing on this adorable wooden yurt, a dated suburban home gets a Shingle-style makeover, five minutes with designer Tracy Davis, inside the studio where painter Jan ter Weele creates his richly layered scenes, and a mid-century houseboat anchors a former helicopter pilot on Rangeley Lake.
