We invited more than 60 interior designers across Maine to submit their projects for consideration for this year’s Interior Design Issue roundup. When we work on stories like these, we purposely steer clear of using words like “best”—after all, when it comes to spaces, “best” can’t be measured and is entirely too subjective to mean much. Instead, we found that the projects that rose to the top were timeless rather than trendy, inspired and intentional, and further, each offers a glimpse into both the homeowner’s personality and the designer’s philosophy.
