“I love, love coffee. I feel like I need it to give me that push to get through the morning and afternoon. It’s a crutch to keep me alert while I coordinate the logistics of shipping and tracking Maine Cottage furniture all across the world. Typically, I’ll consume about six cups a day and know it’s not the healthiest beverage. I chose the Farmer’s Wife juice because the watermelon and cucumber are incredibly hydrating, which helps me stay refreshed and alert. The basil is also a calming scent that I appreciate when having to speak with customers and schedule overnight deliveries from as close as Annapolis to as far as Norway.” —Sara, Customer Service Director
A lively color that suggests a youthful and carefree spirit. Mixed Berry is the latest Maine Cottage pink creation that was inspired by a frozen drink. This yummy color has a slight blue undertone that gives it a hint of sophistication. For a fun and friendly addition to any home, go positively pink!

Thank you once again Martha Stewart Living for including us in the February 2011 Great Finds” (PDF). Building on the current pinkish red color trend and some neutral complements comes this article “Niche Appeal” with a Maine Cottage Daisy Side Chair in Smoothie. It’s also available as an Armchair. We like the emphasis on “an easy formality” in this article. Wicker chairs are the essence of this style and versatility.

It’s not just red, pink or magenta. It’s uplifting and festive. A sensory experience. Pantone (color experts) calls it “Honeysuckle” and declared it the 2011 color of the year. We thought you’d like to know. If you’re in the Maine Cottage school of thought, you’ll agree that even a small hint of reds, red-pinks, and red-violets give a room (or wardrobe) a similar burst of energy. Maine Cottage rhubarb, shrimp, zinnia and even smoothie fall into this category of pinkish warm reds. And remember how fantastic these warm hues look with cooler blues, bluegreens, greens and neutrals for added drama and stimulation. A bouquet of fresh flowers or a fruit smoothie can have the same invigorating effect on a January day.
