Sea is the newest Maine Cottage color. Sea made its debut at the Charleston Designer Showhouse in April 2010. We mentioned it then, but want to make sure you discover it. Sea is a bluegreen with beautiful depth (like its namesake) and versatility – available in several Maine Cottage fabrics and as paint.

Sea joins the rest of our beachy Maine Cottage blues – Marine, Wave, Porch, and Bluebell – with ease and has already been slyly present in a few of our fabrics (ie: Sun Summer Bloom). Sample Sea in a fabric swatch or color chip card.

Can a room embrace you? We think this one does. Its convivial, open, light-hearted spirit makes it a delightful space for entertaining guests.

A Maine Cottage Living Room.

Semi-formal in style, this room’s the crown jewel of the designer showhouse we furnished recently in historic Charleston, South Carolina. Transformed by radiant Maine Cottage colors and soft textures, this room sparkles with yellows, oranges and reds – including custom window treatments and seat cushions in brilliant Maine Cottage fabrics (available by-the-yard). And all tying in beautifully with the craftsman-era architecture, parquet flooring, built-in cabinetry and generously proportioned windows.

Maine Cottage colors (l to r, clockwise): Sun, Milk, Ale, Zinnia, Pear, Smoothie, Mango and Rhubarb.

An inviting kitchen, breakfast nook or informal dining area is an uplifting way to begin a day. Maine Cottage color idea #2 is grouping of yellows and oranges combined artfully on the furniture, window treatments, complementary dinnerware, lighting, tabletop accessories and area rug of this sparkling eat-in kitchen. Jubilee fabric enlivens the space with it’s joyful bursts of pattern and color. Try this cheerful room with eggs benedict and icy mimosas.

What better way to see the dramatic changes that took place in the recent designer showhouse Master Bedroom suite. Does anyone remember the *1970s Prell shampoo ad? Telling us how their product made you go from “flat” to “fluffy”? Well, the transformation here is kind of like that – except without any “fluff”. Every element was thoughtfully selected and beautifully placed in this room. We turned an ordinary space into extraordinary Maine Cottage bedroom.

Take a tour by viewing this 360° “virtual” room photography of the Master Bedroom. Click and drag with your your mouse to move around the room, including up and down. Click and ZOOM in by using your mouse wheel or right side of your laptop touchpad. A friendly reminder to move slowly to take it all in. Call us for details about the pieces, colors, fabrics and accessories shown in the room. We carry everything, and we mean EVERYTHING, shown in this room.

(*By the way, does anyone want to watch that 1977 Prell ad on YouTube for a laugh? Those of us who grew up in the 70′s TV generation will most likely remember it well…)

Just in! 360 degree “virtual” room photography of the Family Room at the recent Charleston Designer Showhouse. Click and drag to move around the room, including up and down. And a word of warning – move around slowly to prevent dizziness! Enjoy.

Charleston photographer Leigh Webber spent 3 fun days with us in April shooting the recent Maine Cottage furnished Charleston Symphony Designer Showhouse. Best known for her photography of weddings and children, Leigh and stylist Maggie Kennedy – photo editor at Garden & Gun magazine – did a fantastic job capturing the beauty of this in-town Arts & Crafts beach house. View a few of her favorite images on her blog.

The Maine Cottage furnished 2010 Charleston Symphony Showhouse closed a few weeks ago and we just got a disc full of beautiful images from photographer Leigh Webber. This first bunch will give you a glimpse of the kitchen. Filled with sunny yellows, the eat-in breakfast nook is cozy and inviting. The window treatments in Maine Cottage fabrics pull it all together.

Janet Knorr

When Maine Cottage VP David Petersen recently chatted with Janet Knorr, the Co-Chair of the Charleston Showhouse, he told her the biggest surprise for him was the kitchen and how it “says Good Morning”. Janet smiled in agreement and said “Yes, it’s all about breakfast.” They both laughed and Janet went on to say, “When I walk into the kitchen, I want to think about breakfast.”
