Why I Live Here

The Guide

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.

Get Inspired

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.
