After perusing Martha Stewart's Maine Guest House tour on her site, we were left with two lingering questions: 1. Does everything photograph beautifully with a backdrop of soft pink walls? and 2) Is wicker furniture allowed indoors?
Domino magazine (see their September issue) and Martha concur on the last point. Apparently, wicker is back--with a vengeance. After years of being relegated to porches, back patios, and the corners of garages, this category of furniture is attempting to stake a claim indoors and be taken seriously. Martha gives it an opportunity by painting all of her wicker pieces (writing desk, chairs, even a bed frame) in a soft grey-blue, but we're still suspicious. After all, that soft pink wall color could make anything look good.
