The Rice residence is described as old world intimacy in Maine. This house moves away from the usual open plan and light, beachy color themes of newer houses in Maine. The owner grew up in Ireland and the house reflects the remembered comforts of home. The rooms are smaller, warmer, and more intimate, more like historic homes. The warm, celtic kitchen houses a cast iron AGA stove, and the dining room is richly toned with Irish crystal lighting and antique dark mahogany furniture. Playful touches are evident in the Caribbean bathroom and urban street inspired mud room.
