THE MAINE ATTRACTION
Okay, I've had enough of goofing off. Here is one of the homes from The Book that I haven't shown you yet.
Maine artist Missy Asen's eye for color extends from her paintings done in acrylic paints and watercolors to her home as well.
After spending several summers in a nearby cottage, the Asens purchased a piece of land overlooking a secluded cove on Little Diamond Island.
Like many island dwellings, their cottage has hardwood floors, traditional beadboard walls and a sense of family history.
As you can see from the cozy corner shown here, flamingo pink adds a sunny aspect to the beadboard walls.
In the dining room, doors open to a spectacular view on one side and to a comfy porch on the other. The room is simply furnished with a table crafted of reclaimed wood and junk store chairs made festive with paint that coordinates with the peppers in Missy’s painting above the hutch.
