Bar Harbor Interior Design

“Panache in our home began with my husband wanting a commercial size cook stove! Tracy Winthrop’s talent created a most stunning kitchen for us. Her training and experience guided us with ease and delight through to a new living/cooking area where we spend most of our time. Her expertise in color and lighting helped create a warmth we could not have achieved by ourselves. She deftly incorporates the owners’ furnishings with her suggestions in a more complimentary and functional expression of their wishes. Her skill is transformational in other rooms in our home as well! We wholeheartedly recommend Panache to anyone hoping for assistance in their surroundings.”

“My experience with Panache Interior Design was entirely positive. I decided to downsize my home and hoped to build a small, low maintenance, handicapped accessible, and energy efficient home that would allow me to age in pleasant surroundings. Tracy and her team of dedicated craftsmen designed and built a home for me which has been the talk of the town. Strangers now ask to tour the home, saying it is just what they have been thinking of for their retirement years. Tracy listened carefully, made constructive suggestions when she could see potential problems that had not occurred to me, and created a warm and inviting interior with the Maine cottage exterior I wished for. The team was experienced, professional, and timely. I would not change a thing!”

“I have worked with Tracy for many years. She also has done all my homes, every one is spectacular. She is a brilliant designer, her level of getting the project done is excellent. I cannot tell you enough positive things about her work. I would never use anyone else but Panache. She also becomes your dear friend.”

“Tracy Winthrop’s work is superb.  Most importantly, she listens to what you need and want done.  She takes the pieces you have and adds just the right extras to create an elegant room or space.  I needed a living room redone in two separate houses.  One was a summer house and one was my main home.  The summer living room had big empty spaces. I told her I wanted the room to be more inviting.  She not only picked out appropriate bright upholstery fabrics but designed a large leather coffee table that fills the space perfectly.  Her sense of color is amazing.  Every piece of furniture in my living room and dining room coordinate.  She created a more formal look for my winter home.  She tailored each house for what I wanted.  They both look fabulous.  She makes decorating magic happen.  Plus she is very easy to work with.  Would highly recommend her.”
