Ceane, my friend and client, and I were chatting about all the changes in her newly updated kitchen (the one I wrote about here), and what else was left for us to tackle. Artwork came up, and I knew we had to inject a pop of something bold, colorful and [...]

Maine is more than summer cottages, lobsters and lighthouses. It's a place of stunning natural beauty, especially in the fall. There is a popular saying that there are more trees than people in this state. Imagine those trees aglow in brilliant shades of golds and crimsons, and how magical they [...]
