Top 20 Home Tours of All Time: #17 Ayumi + Chloe’s Peaceful Home in Maine

by Grace Bonney

Over the past 15 years, one of the things I’ve loved most about working here at Design*Sponge is that *hunch* we’ve all developed that someone’s design work probably means they also have a beautiful home. I’ve been a fan of potter Ayumi Horie’s work for a very long time and had always been curious about her home in Maine. So I was thrilled when she and her wife Chloe opened their doors to us back in 2015. In addition to a sweet pup named Clover, their home tour was a celebration of meaningful details and handmade pieces, antique furniture and bright pinks and yellows. That’s my kind of home tour. I’m so thrilled to relive this gorgeous home today at our #17 spot on the Top 20 Home Tours countdown. xo, Grace
