a Michigan lake home in Maine Cottage

9 Sep

Just in from a customer in Michigan who completed a home renovation project in her adorable lake home with rooms full of Maine Cottage furniture. Kelly Prucnal of our Yarmouth, ME store worked closely with her to find styles that best fit her home and taste preferences. Blakely’s love of blues and yellows is woven beautifully throughout these cozy, intimate spaces with Maine Cottage colors and fabrics.

“I have been meaning to send you these photos of our cottage for weeks. I actually took them in early July and we’ve added pictures on the walls, etc., but this will give you an idea of how nicely things turned out. The cottage has been filled with family and friends every single weekend since the 4th of July. Next weekend I plan to stay there with some friends and I’m looking forward to trying it out. Many thanks for all of your help!” – Blakely, Michigan

something new in New England Home

8 Sep
New England magazine

Sophisticated New England Home magazine kindly mentions our new Ogden Collection in the Sept/October issue. Ogden is beachy oak furniture with an Ivory or Milk brushed finish within the grain. A finish much like the traditional liming process makes them impervious to normal household wear and tear. The color, scale and style are not new; Ogden is designed to fit with and complement the rest of our Maine Cottage furnishings. More about Ogden.

a modern retro bunk room: Design New Jersey

11 Aug
Design New Jersey magazine

We love the bunk room shown in Design New Jersey Magazine. The colors are for children, yet not childish. There’s room to grow in this space – tweens, teens and beyond. The interior designer chose Maine Cottage for several rooms in this home, including a cool bunk room. Our Shutter Bunk Beds in a dark color with a contrasting ladder is a fun idea – and emphasized by sophisticated accessories. Best of all, if the kids tire of bunks, they can peel them apart into twin-sized Shutter UTE Beds.

a Masterful Maine Cottage Bedroom: before & after

25 May

What better way to see the dramatic changes that took place in the recent designer showhouse Master Bedroom suite. Does anyone remember the *1970s Prell shampoo ad? Telling us how their product made you go from “flat” to “fluffy”? Well, the transformation here is kind of like that – except without any “fluff”. Every element was thoughtfully selected and beautifully placed in this room. We turned an ordinary space into extraordinary Maine Cottage bedroom.

Take a tour by viewing this 360° “virtual” room photography of the Master Bedroom. Click and drag with your your mouse to move around the room, including up and down. Click and ZOOM in by using your mouse wheel or right side of your laptop touchpad. A friendly reminder to move slowly to take it all in. Call us for details about the pieces, colors, fabrics and accessories shown in the room. We carry everything, and we mean EVERYTHING, shown in this room.

(*By the way, does anyone want to watch that 1977 Prell ad on YouTube for a laugh? Those of us who grew up in the 70’s TV generation will most likely remember it well…)

Planning a Fall or Spring 2011 vacation? We were happily surprised to discover that the Parrot Key Hotel & Resort in the Florida Keys chose some Maine Cottage furniture and fabrics to decorate their adorable resort cottages. More about Parrot Key Resort.
