Letter from MH+D


by Rebecca Falzano

Like many of the homes we feature, Maine Home+Design is constantly seeking self-improvement. That’s why we have recently introduced a few new departments to the magazine: Flip to the pages of Turnout for a quick, pictorial recap of recent local events; get an inside glimpse into the mind of an architect in our AIA Design Theory Q&A; and join us on a Field Trip each month where we discover the hidden talents of some of the best designers in the state. Our hope is that through these new avenues, we can bring you even more of Maine’s compelling design scene.

Rebecca_wAlong with these changes, we continue to bring you the quality content for which MH+D is known. That content goes beyond the pages of the magazine and includes exclusive online stories on our website and access to the talent behind the stories we feature. Look for the web-exclusive icons at the end of a story, and then visit our website for additional photos, recipes, and backstories. And be sure to check out the Resources section in the back of each issue where we provide names and contact information for all of the hands that have touched each project.

In addition to debuting our new departments this month, we feature three incredible feature stories that beautifully encapsulate the spirit of summer: a lakeside camp compound (Lake House Living, page 42), a family home on the harbor (A Family Affair, page 51), and an island entertainment hub (Easy Elegance, page 59). These homes are unique in their own ways, but are united—in true summer fashion—by the draw of the water and the gathering of family.

In this final full month of the season, the MH+D team is happy to bring you this issue before we launch our second magazine, Maine, in September. And as always, let us know what you think.
