all things Bright and Beautiful

21 Oct

Paula lives here along the coast of Maine where she has worked with us for two years to assemble this bright, beautiful living area – piece by piece and fabric by fabric. She’s very proud and excited about the outcome. And so are we! Here’s a great picture from her.

Maine Cottage look

What an invitingly warm and colorful living space! We love her choice of a Maine Cottage Adeline Sofa, Simon Chair and Ruben Hassock in Rambler and Just Dandy print fabrics with painted Fiddlehead End and wicker Cooper tables. A Tulip Lamp by Jill Rosenwald in a simple, proportionate form with coordinating colors adds interest. The repetition of soft greens, yellows with some red pull the whole area together with ease. Congratulations, Paula! Thanks for sharing.

Here’s another interior by Maine Cottage co-founder Carol Bass. This time in a brightly-lit guest cottage (some would say “beach house”) near Charleston, South Carolina. Carol and partner Bob Newton collaborated to renovate and furnish this comfortable cottage from top to bottom using a wide variety of furnishings, including Maine Cottage, Carol’s original artwork, and a handmade dining table by Bob Newton.

do you See what I Sea?

9 Jul

There are many names for it – sea green, sea blue, aquamarine, turquoise and wave. It’s the color of ocean and sky. Cool, refreshing and clear. You can almost hear the gentle lapping of waves. The roar of surf. Bluegreens are soothing, uplifting and invigorating in nearly every shape and form. Living with them is too.
