“A new design book reveals the Pine Tree State’s most quintessential homes. . . .The Maine House is filled with homes whose decoration, from slamming screen doors to unfinished walls and bric-a-brac kitchens, are as quirky as they are charming. As the book reveals, it’s the details—bookcases crammed with Stephen King thrillers, doors fronted by curtains, and a dose of practical magic—that get to the essence of what a home in Maine is all about.”
— Elle Decor
