Designs for Living
For this year’s Interior Design Issue, we invited more than 50 Maine designers to submit work they were proud of—projects that speak to their talent, vision, and, above all, ability to translate a client’s wishlist into reality. On the following pages is a collection of the 13 interiors that rose to the top for being not only beautiful but functional. Each one was designed with a careful selection of finishes, fabrics, and furnishings that suit the particular space, client, and challenge. The projects as a whole—each one so different—reflect an ethos that all the designers on these pages share: that no space is perfect if it’s not personal, that great design is not just about style but substance. As you’re flipping through these beautiful rooms, take note of the intention behind each decision, the behind-the-scenes know-how it takes to make a space sing.
