The Guide

Home products in punchy primary shades, new owners are putting their stamp on Maine’s historic inns, locally sourced rugs that have us floored, she scored her own private island in Addison, miracle-cure believers flocked to this Waterford landmark, and an 1830s Eastport Cape is a worthy project.
