When Sharon met Paul Mrozinski in 1977, neither one of them knew that their lives would be changed forever. A small disaster involving a collapsed driveway initially brought them together, but it’s their uncanny ability to work creatively side-by-side that has made them inseparable ever since. Sharon (a designer and antique dealer) and Paul (an architect) now own several properties in Maine and France. Each one is imbued with this couple’s signature style — a gorgeous mix of Paul’s thoughtful renovations paired with Sharon’s impeccable eye for textiles and antiques. We spent an afternoon with Paul and Sharon in their Vinalhaven Island home to talk about fate, love, and how together, they designed the life of their dreams.
