Porch is one of the most popular Maine Cottage® signature colors and many clients use the unique blue-green hue to completely color-drench their home’s interior color scheme! Others use it to add pops of relaxing touches in their sitting room, reading nook, or guest bedroom. Whether you prefer solid wood, wicker, or upholstered furniture in Porch, you’ll be sure to be pleased. It evokes reminiscing and laughing over lemonade and taffy while sitting on a painted front porch with family and friends after a day on the water. The subdued yet energized shade can add an uplifting spirit to any palette. How does our color Porch make you feel?

Maine Cottage in House BeautifulWe happily discovered our Windsor Arm Chairs in the February 2011 issue of House Beautiful in an article “Light & Bright” about the makeover of a “Cape Cod-style cottage” in Venice, CA by interior designer Alexandra Angle. Angle refers to the newly finished house as being “young, light, and happy”, which is exactly how we like to characterize the Maine Cottage style. Read an interview with Angle about the project. See some of the light, airy rooms below.

Maine Cottage Windsor Armchairs

“It’s like one of those long, beautiful ribbon candies in white and blue, with yellow stripe. It’s young, light, and happy. Houses need to make you experience a feeling, and each room should tell a story.”
- Alexandra Angle, House Beautiful

“The whole point was to have something that would show wear and tear, like those older East Coast country houses. That’s why I like painted furniture that will distress with elegance. It’s not going to look worse as dirty hands touch it.”
- Alexandra Angle, House Beautiful
