A hidden treasure up in Hallowell, Maine is Brahms Mount textiles. This place, with its incredible history, continues to have artisans working on antique shuttle looms. I am in love with this cotton herringbone throw with the signature Brahms Mount rope trim. I would get one in every color if I could. But if I have to choose I would pick the Island Blue…or the Misty Blue. Don’t make me choose!

I love visiting Savoir Faire Home, in Andover, Massachusetts. The store seems to glow in soft, worn yellow, reminding me of hand-rubbed surfaces and timeless craftsmanship. Owners Lisa Duffy and Sandra Shaheen really understand French style, choosing warm, earthy antiques picked from the countryside, accented with finely woven linens and beautiful handmade tableware.
