Kennebunkport + The Southern Beaches
Pallian & Company
It’s easy to miss this nondescript gift and home and garden goods store on one of the busiest stretches of U.S. Route 1; inside, however, is a different story. Cynthia Carroll Pallian’s eye for distinctive interior accents is undeniable, and her great taste is evidenced in her fabulous hand-selected products—everything from wrought-iron chandeliers and organic flaxen sheets to cheery Pierre Frey cocktail napkins fill the store’s airy rooms, nooks and crannies, and barn-style loft floor. The selection of sophisticated items inspired by the sea (think ceramic barnacle centerpieces, shell lamps, and trays etched with images of coral) is especially stop-worthy.
