Two and a half years in the making, our new book, Remodelista in Maine: A Design Lover’s Guide to Inspired, Down-to-Earth Style, is officially out today from Artisan Books.
Anyone who’s ever been to Maine for a summer weekend—or returned over a lifetime—can testify to the pull that this place has, from its wild, rocky coast to its lighthouses (and lobster) and dark pine forests. But Maine is also something of a design haven, a place where makers, artists, and writers have always gone to live creatively and to make by hand. Those who call Maine home live resourcefully and in tandem with the landscape, the seasons, and the tides. The result? Rugged, inherently eco-friendly, evocative homes; practical (and artful) handmade wares; and—now more than ever—a slew of design-forward places to eat, stay, and see all across the state.
In the book you’ll find in-depth tours of 10 Maine cottages, farmhouses, off-grid escapes, and modern homesteads, with original photography by Greta Rybus and all the details about what makes each house work; easily adoptable tips from Maine shopkeepers, designers, and chefs; simple DIY projects to do in every season; and dozens of design lessons to borrow from Maine, no matter where you live. Plus, our mini travel guides if you’re planning a trip.
