With entertaining and vintage charm in mind, Lily Kanter—co-founder of Serena & Lily—shares the end result after lovingly remodeling her 19th-century California home in the July/August issue of Coastal Living. She complemented the home’s original craftsmanship with a few beautiful Maine Cottage® painted wood and upholstered furniture pieces.

Annapolis Lifestyle Magazine met with our President, Larry Strassner, and Creative Director, Lauren Russell, to talk about how, like two complementary colors, this father-daughter team has worked together to find balance running a 26-year-old colorful furniture company. Taking a break from being behind the computer, phone and camera at Maine Cottage®, Larry and Lauren shared what the tagline, “where color lives,” really means. We picked some of our favorite photos from the article below, but you can read the full article here.

Fun fact about Larry, he has a collection of wildly colorful socks! They coordinate nicely with his Windsor Arm Chair in Marine.

Working with family can sometimes call for relaxing with a cold one. The Anna Chair in Luxe Yuri / China Blue and Classic Maine Cottage End Table in Milk are a perfect place to plop yourself and perch your drink. Pillow shown is Ann’s Labyrinth / China Blue.

Valentine, you make me silly;
You make my heart beat willy-nilly;
When I’m with you, the world is hazy;
Valentine, you drive me crazy!

Valentine, when we’re apart,
My need for you goes off the chart.
Will you be mine? Can I be thine?
Say you’ll be my Valentine!

J. Fuchs

It’s not about fancy repertoire, flourishes and embellishments… At the core it’s about starting, stepping and pausing with the music. All the rest is icing on the cake.

Beginners want to dance like intermediates; intermediates want to dance like advanced dancers; advanced dancers want to dance like the greats; but the greats always go back to basics.


Valentine’s Day comes once a year, but love’s with us every day. Romantic love, yes, if we’re lucky. And a love for fun, food, music and dance. We love our families, good friends and being at home. At Maine Cottage, we love simplicity. Back-to-basics simple. The kind that means living essentially in a beautiful, practical way. No bells, whistles or extravagance. Comfortable, enduring, inspired, even extraordinary. A place where you’re so content that your heart may (spontaneously) beat willy-nilly!

Saffron, yeah
I’m just-a mad about her
I’m-a just-a mad about-a Saffron
She’s just mad about me

They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly

Oh, so yellow…
Oh, so mellow…

Maine Cottage in Better Homes & Gardens, special interest We appreciate how a recent Better Homes & Gardens “Big Style for Small Rooms” Special Interest Publication includes Maine Cottage mentions. The wicker table on the cover isn’t ours, but we’re listed as a source for similar wicker and rattan tables. We also found our Great Island Bookcase in an attractive home office. It looks like True Blue or Iris. And the popular wicker Bistro Chairs in Bluebell or Good Egg are enticing in a sunny dining space.

Maine Cottage Bella Bed

There are scads of ways to spoil your family’s Fido. A dog’s an important family member. An expression and extension of your personality, style and taste. The breed you choose, naming him/her, a handsomely original collar and leash… a pooch is fun to accessorize. And what better way than on a bed that fits in with your favorite Maine Cottage colors and home furnishings?
