Trending on Remodelista: 5 Design Ideas to Steal from Maine

August 17, 2018

“I would really rather feel bad in Maine than feel good anywhere else,” wrote E. B. White, with no further explanation necessary. This week the Remodelista editors found design inspiration along craggy shorelines and in velvet-green forests. Here are their five favorite design ideas to steal from Maine.

Woodstoves

In a kitchen designed &#8\2\20;with maximum efficiency in mind, particularly for the long Maine winters, heat from the woodstove—the house’s only heat source—rises through the ceiling into the sleeping loft above, then is pulled back downward through a floor grate to create a convection heating system for the whole house,&#8\2\2\1; writes Annie.

Forest-Inspired Bed Linens
