The business will offer home furnishings, flower arrangements, vintage and antique items, Cavallini paper goods, and Sweet Grass Farm candles, soaps, and lotions.

Kyle will showcase the decor and accessories she used in clients’ homes when she owned and operated Vignette Home Design in Stow, Mass. before moving to Wiscasset.

Kyle is a retired teacher, having taught for 22 years. She refers to herself as a wife and mother, a cancer survivor, a trained chef, and an interior redesign stylist, an art she is anxious to share in her new business.

Kyle and her husband, Leo Egan, left the place she had spent most of her life and moved to Wiscasset on April 26, 2018. She immediately became involved in the town.
