Welcome ur homes have always been a place to which we could retreat and restore ourselves from the grind of the everyday. But now that the “everyday” is happening all under one roof, 24/7, we’re asking our homes to do a lot for us. In addition to providing places to cook and sleep, they’ve suddenly become ad hoc gyms, classrooms, and meeting rooms. The idea of a life/work balance has never been blurred as much as it is now, and rooms originally built with a single purpose in mind have been adapted at a moment’s notice to accommodate this shift. As a result, many of us have looked at our respective spaces with a critical eye, making lists of home projects to tackle in the months to come—from painting to new plantings—when the time’s right. And, perhaps, we’ve done it with a shift in perspective: What is truly important? What do I really want to surround myself with? Many of our favorite shops are closed, and many craftsmen and artisans are furloughed because they’re not technically or legally deemed “essential businesses.” What I know for sure is that the comforts of home are, indeed, more essential now, and I look forward to supporting those who help us create and shape our dream homes in any way that I can. In the meantime, I wish you all the best in nurturing your spaces both in the short-term and in the future days to come. CLINTON SMITH Editor at Large

I

t goes without saying that we are living in unprecedented times. As I write this note, on day seven of sheltering in place at my home, it’s impossible for me to forecast the state of the world by the time this issue reaches your hands. That said, I have been so inspired by the conversations I’ve had with so many design professionals across New England in recent days. Everyone knows that home is more important now than ever before, and will continue to be in the months to come. On our social media accounts we’ve been highlighting the clever ways designers, architects, builders, and shops and showrooms have been staying connected with their clients and customers. Everyone is adapting to the changes on a daily (sometimes, hourly) basis, and many are facing tough decisions, but the spirit of community is stronger than ever. Though there is anxiety about the unknown, there is a sense of optimism that will allow us to get through these challenges as we chart a new course. Please continue to be in touch. We will get through this together, and I look forward to celebrating with you when we do. KATHY BUSH-DUTTON Publisher

The Inn Crowd

A trio of New England boutique hotels offer up a wealth of design inspiration. BY ERIKA AYN FINCH

Blind Tiger is chockfull of wood-burning fireplaces like this one, which is adorned with a bust found at Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, Connecticut. The wall color is Benjamin Moore’s Topsoil.

INSPIRING INTERIORS Blind Tiger’s vintage treasures include a leather sofa and club chairs from 1stdibs. The other sofa in this lounge space is made from reclaimed ash wood and comes from Noir as does the brass light. The wallpaper on the ceiling? That’s from Phillip Jeffries.

A

s more travelers seek out authentic and experiential accommodations, hotels are taking notice and blurring the lines between hospitality and residential design. These three properties are filled with unexpected surprises and hidden moments of discovery. Their interior inspiration and design details are well-suited for any chic and stylish home. Let’s check in!

PAST PERFECT The space that houses Portland’s Blind Tiger, the newest Lark Hotels property, has served many masters since it was built as a private residence in the 1820s. It was a home, a seminary, and a school before being converted into an inn in the 1990s, but it was the role the space played during Prohibition that gave it its moniker. “The people who owned the property were socialites,” explains Rob Blood, president and founder of Lark Hotels. “They weren’t too happy when Maine became the first state to embrace Prohibition, so they

opened a speakeasy in the basement. The hotel’s name is a nod to its speakeasy past.” That basement space now serves as a billiards room—a place where you want to sip Scotch on a cold winter’s night, says Blood—complete with a pool table and fireplace. In fact, eight of the guesthouse’s nine rooms boast wood-burning fireplaces. The yearround Blind Tiger opened its doors this past Valentine’s Day after a forty-fiveday renovation. Blood, who, along with Meg Kennedy, is a partner in the hotel design firm Elder & Ash, says the inn was designed to make guests

feel like they are part of the neighborhood; think Airbnb meets boutique hotel. “It’s like coming to Portland and staying at a wellconnected friend’s home,” says Blood. To that end, Blind Tiger is filled with vintage finds from places like 1stdibs, Portland Flea-for-All, and FINCH Hudson in upstate New York. Blood and Kennedy went to great lengths to preserve the building’s original fireplace surrounds, crown molding, and oak and maple hardwood floors. And though we don’t want to give away all of Blind Tiger’s secrets, we can’t resist sharing this one: when you first arrive in your room, you’ll find a letter from a Portland local, recommending his/her favorite restaurants, bars, and hotspots. A well-connected friend, indeed. Blind Tiger, Portland, Maine, blindtigerportland.com

FROM TOP: In order to make guests feel like they are staying with a friend, the design team used furnishings more commonly found in residential spaces like this rug from Dash & Albert and wallcovering by Kelly Wearstler. And just as it is for many homeowners, Etsy was a design source for Lark Hotels; an antique rug from Turkey was purchased from that site, while the 1930s chair was discovered at FINCH Hudson in New York.

For this gathering spot, designer Rachel Reider envisioned a space where guests could read the newspaper in the morning, play cards in the afternoon, and sip wine in the evening—almost like a den. A local gallery supplied the artwork.

POETIC LICENSE When you step into Camden, Maine’s Whitehall, you’ll walk through a room dedicated to local luminary Edna St. Vincent Millay (she first recited her poem “Renascence” in that same room in 1912) before you reach the lobby, or “living room,” as the owners have nicknamed the space. (Whitehall is also owned by Lark Hotels.) In the living room, a lipstick-red, patent-

CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT: The inn’s communal spaces were designed to create intimate and comfortable conversation areas. Reider loves the Kartell rockers in the guest rooms, describing the pieces as modern interpretations of traditional chairs, while the hand-painted paddles are meant to represent Maine’s maker culture. For the bathrooms, Reider’s team painted the original clawfoot tubs accent colors that coordinate with the guest rooms for “an unexpected surprise.”

leather banquette topped with soft black-and-gray throw pillows greets you. The shiny leather is a nod to the glassy ocean in Whitehall’s front yard, while the red-and-black combination brings to mind the flannel shirts that are ubiquitous to Maine. It’s a piece that epitomizes the inspiration behind the Rachel Reider-designed property. “Camden is known as the town where the mountains meet the sea, and that was our starting inspiration in color palette and texture,” says Reider. Whitehall started life as a sprawling sea captain’s home before transitioning into an inn in the early 1900s. Lark Hotels, which has twenty-nine properties in New England, New York, Florida, and California, has owned the thirty-sixroom inn since 2014; it was redesigned

in partnership with Boston-based Reider in 2015, and is open from Mother’s Day through Halloween. The rooms either skew toward that aforementioned banquette with accents of black and red, or they embrace the dense forest outside through grasscloth-covered walls, leafy-green highlights, and art objects made from lacquered tree branches. The personal touches are everywhere, from the needlepoint room numbers on the doors to the camouflage-meets-Atlantic pattern on the hallway carpeting. “Our design philosophy was very much about respecting the tradition of the inn but giving it a refresh to appeal to modern-day travelers,” says Reider. Whitehall, Camden, Maine, whitehall maine.com

“CAMDEN IS KNOWN AS THE TOWN WHERE THE MOUNTAINS MEET THE SEA, SO THAT WAS OUR STARTING INSPIRATION,” SAYS RACHEL REIDER. 50

INSPIRING INTERIORS

LEFT: A deluxe king suite, designed by owner Kevin O’Shea, at Salt House Inn features found objects above the bed and lighting by Schoolhouse Electric. BELOW: As a nod to its watery location, the suite’s sitting area boasts a collection of red lanterns and a cozy chair upholstered with fabric by Perennials.

SALT OF THE EARTH When Kevin O’Shea and David Bowd decided to take a break from hectic New York careers in hospitality, they saw Provincetown as a place to start a quieter life, a “get-out-of-New-York card,” as O’Shea puts it. Things didn’t quite work out according to plan. What started out as taking over operations at Salt House Inn in 2011 turned into a total renovation (the redesigned space opened in 2013) and then a collection of five boutique hotels in Cape Cod, New Jersey, and New York, with four more properties on the way. Nonetheless, the fifteen-room Salt House holds a special place in their hearts as Salt Hotels’ first born. The space was originally a collection of cottages built in the 1800s as housing for workers from the nearby salt mines. The cottages morphed into each other over the years, and the building has served as a guesthouse since the 1960s. Seeking to use a light touch when it came time to renovate the rooms, O’Shea, who led the redesign (he’s a RISD alumnus), opted to leave some of the inn’s quirkiness—like the crooked walls and a clawfoot bathtub in the 450-square-foot loft room—untouched. He scoured antique stores all over New England, looking for items that were indica-

The result are bright white rooms with shiplap and artifacts on the walls. The breakfast room is slightly more formal than the guestrooms; the enormous portrait on the wall was discovered in an antique shop in Brooklyn. There’s also a chalkboard wall that broadcasts

the breakfast menu and the weather. The inn operates April through October. O’Shea says every spring, he looks at Salt House with a critical eye, searching for areas that need refreshing. “But I’m still happy with it,” he says. “It’s timeless.” Salt House Inn, Provincetown, Mass., salthotels.com

That’s a Classic

A stone and shingle beauty on the Rhode Island coast speaks to the grandeur of the Gilded Age. TEXT BY LISA H. SPEIDEL

A

s the old saying goes: when opportunity knocks, answer the door. And that’s exactly what the homeowners did in this case— but in reverse: they saw the door, then seized the opportunity. It was an image of a grand front door in an advertisement (in this magazine, in fact) that led the homeowners to Andrew Reck of Oak Hill Architects.

They had bought a sweeping swath of land on the coast in Rhode Island with plans to create a multi-generational summer home, a place where their grown kids and grandkids could gather. The location was unique with its 270-degree views, and it was a blank slate (a seaside estate had been torn down in the mid-1900s). “It was a tremendous honor, and it came with a tremendous sense of responsibility,” says Reck about the project. “This is a very special piece of property.” In a nod to Rhode Island’s roots, Reck designed a house that would “evoke the Gilded Age, but have a quiet grandiosity.” He opted for a gambrelShingle-style design to both blend with the pastoral surroundings and—thanks to a double-pitch roof that contains the second story in the eaves—decrease the overall massing. To make it feel as if it emerges from the ground, it is built into an existing stone ledge outcropping.

62

MJ20 Good Bones_Fin.indd 62

A handsome fieldstone arch leads to the central courtyard, around which the house is organized. “This is one of a series of archways that frame specific views, and define how one moves through the house,” says architect Andrew Reck. The facing door opens into the family’s mudroom. Photography by Michael Partenio

TOP TO BOTTOM: The view of the house along the approach; the main rooms are laid out around the outer perimeter to take full advantage of the views, including the master suite on the far left and the guest house, which is connected only by the roof, on the far right. An outdoor fieldstone fireplace is an ideal cool-weather gathering space. The breakfast area off the kitchen has a 180-degree vista thanks to the generous bay window.

The materials, too, conjure classic New England: natural fieldstone, cedar shingles, heavy wooden dentil molding, and granite sills that run the perimeter. While the house brims with architectural pride of place, the layout was inspired from further afield. “I’ve been drawn to courtyard houses since I studied in Italy and spent time in the Swedish countryside,” says Reck. Here, all of the main living spaces, as well as the overall circulation, are organized around a central courtyard, he explains. Different wings (there are designated areas for the parents as

well as the grown kids and their families), are marked by a series of grand arches. “Through all of the arches you can see out to the water,” the architect points out. Indeed, there are lots of arches, says Reck, to soften the overall feel of the house. And one of those arches just happens to be a magnificent custommade mahogany front door with ornate wrought-iron detailing and a pergolastyle overhang. A door so striking, in fact, it could appear in a magazine. EDITOR’S NOTE: For details about this

il painting doesn’t seem like a palette for precision, but underlying each of Jeanine Sobell Pastore’s landscapes and interior paintings is an exactitude born of a passion for geometry. Pastore’s paintings begin with detailed drawings employing drafting tools like T-squares and triangles—unconventional for an artist, perhaps, but not for someone whose interests in school ran to math and science, not art class. If you’re inclined to believe that ability runs in families, a fusion of left- and right-brain skills makes sense for the daughter of a research scientist and a ABOVE: Mint Green Bedroom (2016), 12"H x 12"W, oil on panel.

concert pianist. Besides, the idea that an artist simply translates what his or her eye sees to the blank page is an oversimplification. Pastore, for example, describes her process as “working out what I see in 3-D and translating it to a flat surface”—in her case wood panels, which she prefers for the way the paint adheres without the “give” of canvas. Pastore dislikes working from photographs, but neither is she one to pack up her easel for road trips in search of fresh inspiration. Rather, she finds endless variety in the familiar, whether that’s the landscape right outside the Photography courtesy of Jeanine Sobell Pastore and Sloane Merrill Gallery

Control gives way to Pastore’s admittedly “messy” muse when her drawing is complete and she takes brush in hand. Paint is almost as likely to end up on her clothes and in her hair as on the artwork. “I love the sensation of painting while observing a subject,” says Pastore of a feverish process that sometimes can produce a new work in hours, not days. “Letting what I see flow through my hand and brush and into the painting.

SPECIAL STYLE REPORT

New Horizons

In these uncommon times, New England design pros weigh in on the importance of home today, as well as the shifts we may see as the year progresses.

I

tics—the ability to shut a door to keep noises out. —CATHERINE TRUMAN, Catherine Truman Architects

n this special survey, local professionals share their expertise and personal insight on the immediate changes (and challenges) facing the New England design community. How we live, work, and play is certainly in a time of transition, and their collective wisdom and spirit of collaboration will help usher in a new era of style innovation across our region. The importance of home will be greater than ever before, and the power of design has the power to unite us all.

People are really going to think about home offices more. It’s likely that we’ll all be surprised by how much we can get done remotely, and there may be a new trend toward partially working from home. The flipside is that we are all going to be so excited to spend time with one another that people will be focusing their design budgets on outdoor entertaining spaces and dining rooms and living rooms. Wouldn’t it be exciting to see the formal dining room and living room come back into vogue? —ANNSLEY McALEER,

With change in the air, what key things are going to be most important to your clients right now when it comes to the design of their homes and landscapes?

››  My clients’ priorities remain the same: the goal is still a beautiful home to serve as a gathering place for family (and friends, once things normalize). People want their homes to be a source of comfort and stability, a refuge, a safe place in the most uncertain of times. —KATHLEEN HAY, Kathleen Kay Design

Today’s environment reminds me a little bit of post 9/11. The value of hearth and home is a priority, and people will seek homes that reflect the objectives of feeling safe and secure but are also memorable and romantic.

›› 

Annsley Interiors ››  We will find a lot more people working from home, and the need for home office space will be a bigger factor in smaller homes as well as larger luxury homes. With the rise in video conferencing, lighting (which is so often overlooked) will be even more important than it already is, as well as acous-

—Patrick Ahearn, Patrick Ahearn Architect  

I can imagine a new way of thinking around public spaces in the home, especially the kitchen. Areas will likely be designed so that they can be kept clean and sanitary. People may add a second sink, and hands-free devices such as faucets will become more popular. —KEVIN CRADOCK, Kevin Cradock ››

This crisis has certainly given us the opportunity to figure out what is important, in life and in work.

This trend will definitely continue after something like this. —Sarah Lawson, S+H Construction

call for things like virtual golf, wine-tasting rooms, and craft/project studios. The ultimate sign of luxury has now shifted such that clients can engage with their families within the boundaries of their own property. —MICHAEL CARTER, Carter & Company Interior Design

“Transitional” or a blend between old and new is still the predominant style. That being said, we are seeing a lot more color as opposed to stark whites, grays, and beige, and a return to some fancy wood grains in millwork.

How do you see design in New England evolving?

›› 

that means right-sized lawns, native groundcovers instead of mulch, plantings that attract wildlife, and outdoor furnishings that can stay outside in all seasons rather than creating a storage burden. —ANDREA NILSEN MORSE, Nilsen Landscape Design

People are steering away from traditional interior finishes and leaning toward more edited, lighter, and crisper interiors that maintain a high quality. However, exterior design will continue to be more historic in nature, reflecting the New England vernacular. —PATRICK AHEARN ›› 

Quality and lasting materials, put in place by skilled craftsmen, is a very New England tradition. Now, however, breakneck speed is required in leaning about new materials and technology. That requires persistent commitment to continuing education and collaboration between the design and building industries.

In your projects, how do you honor New England’s rich design heritage and tradition, while also embracing the needs of twenty-first-century lifestyles?

—BOB ERNST

We like to incorporate interior finish and trim details that nod to the traditional New England vernacular—things like shiplap and beadboard and other cottage details—but reworked to be more updated in proportion and feel for a fresh take. —Kathleen Hay

—BOB ERNST, FBN Construction ››  Over more than two decades I have witnessed a significant cultural shift in New England that places greater emphasis on preserving natural resources, embracing wildlife patterns, and working with, rather than against, the context of a site. When we awaken from this pandemic, we will see an incredible spike of environmental advocacy that will lead to significant positive impacts in residential landscape architecture. —MATTHEW CUNNINGHAM, Cunningham

Landscape Design ››  I feel that the experience of this pandemic is a call toward simplification. In the landscape,

The problem with historical houses for modern families is the location of the kitchen (not central) and the cut-up nature of the common space. To open up the living area, walls must be removed. But it’s possible to do this and retain moldings and other decorative trim where walls remain, and to match those details on new walls. —SARAH LAWSON ››

››  We love traditional materials like reclaimed brick, granite, and fieldstone, but we want to pair them with more modern elements like ipe decking, corten steel, and clamshell aggregate so the overall vibe becomes a bit less traditional.

Social media is a fact of life. Our clients are exposed to an endless source of visible inspiration. On the one hand, it’s great because it opens their minds to diverse design points of view. But it can also breed sameness. Part of our job is developing not only a cohesive design direction, but a unique one. —Trent Lloyd and

—TRENT LLOYD AND AMY FLEISCHER

››  Frankly, online shopping is a bore. There is no interaction with a shopkeeper, no conversation, no touch and feel of merchandise, and often what is presented online is not so appealing in the flesh. Online shopping brings out our laziness. Shops and showrooms must be more demanding of their vendors, more creative, rather than following trends that have gone on for years, and invest in good design and quality products.

Brick and mortar retail offerings have been changing as online shopping builds momentum. How are you adapting to make the in-person shopping experience special?

—CHARLES SPADA, Charles Spada Interiors ››  The in-store shopping experience is uniquely special and will continue to offer a sense of community that online shopping cannot. Stores are offering new and unexpected experiences, like workshops, pop-up shopping, and in-store cafes. At our own boutique, we have a maker’s space with a sewing machine operating where customers can talk to our store manager about what she’s creating. A visit to stores now is becoming a learning and entertaining experience. —LINDA CABOT,

Amy Fleischer

››  Both will continue to play an important role in terms of reference material. Pinterest, in particular, while Instagram will continue to be more a social show-your-stuff platform. —CHARLES

SPADA  

Social media is a powerful way for people to establish and develop relationships with companies. Residential design and construction are very personal, and people need to feel comfortable with who we are. It’s a way for customers to get to know us in a low-key, ongoing way.

›› 

—SARAH LAWSON

Linda Cabot Design

Online platforms are already the number-one influencers for residential design. Influencers and blog trendsetters are sharing fabulous design innovation right at your fingertips and on your schedule. It’s all there for both professionals and consumers to explore, react to, and be inspired by. With all this tremendous access and sharing, residential design is on the cusp of something extraordinary! —LINDA CABOT

How do think social media, especially Instagram and Pinterest, will continue to influence design?

›› 

››  Many of the “conveniences” of the early 1990s and 2000s were too complicated and frustrated a lot of people. Simplification of technology will continue. Voice-activated and extremely intuitive functions are where it’s at.

What role will technology continue to play in our homes?

Technology touches everything. It should be considered at the very start of design. ››

Beefy thermal envelopes—thick insulation and strict air movement controls in the exterior walls, roofs, and basements—are popular. These things increase the thickness of exterior walls, and that has an effect on design. I’m sure you’ll see design innovations in the coming years as thicker exterior walls become more common. Remember, mansard roofs became popular as a beautiful way to get around zoning regulations! —SARAH LAWSON

It remains a part of the equation for an overwhelming majority of our clients. —Bob Ernst

››  This is an unsettled time that has required most of us to spend more time at home. We’re working from home and eating at home, and are getting reacquainted with what we like and don’t like about our environments. There is going to be greater interest in creating functional workspaces, living spaces, and sleeping spaces that are uplifting, have meaning, and bring us joy. The old phrase “home is where the heart is” is now more poignant than ever.

What impact do you think the current crisis will have on people’s attitude toward home?

—LINDA CABOT ››  Some of us will be so bored we will just want to escape. A few will realize their home is actually wonderful. Others will realize how awful their home design really is and will want to change it all, which will be great for the industry. —CHARLES SPADA

Dedicated to Craft

A

t Payne/Bouchier, we are a little different from the competition. We grew organically from a hippy woodshop where devotion to craft was the central tenet and we lived and breathed our artisanry. When we came to understand that our pursuit of excellence was often underappreciated, we realized that it was because we were not writing the narrative. We began to include clients in discussions of process and collaborated with them and their design professionals to define success and create realistic expectations. We evolved from a group of a few artisans into a highly organized team of administrators, estimators, project managers, designers, layout engineers, carpenters, and woodworkers. Our project management model is different than most of our competitors, in that we have decentralized it. Our PMs set up their office at the job site rather than working from our corporate office. They manage the budget and schedule, and they run weekly project meetings with the client, their design team, subcontractors, vendors, and engineers. Our bookkeeping and billing are entirely transparent, and we include clients and architects in money-related discussions with subcontractors. Payne/Bouchier project managers are supported not only by our twenty-first-century woodshop and design department, but by our first-rate front office staff, who is responsible for estimating and accounting. Our project executive attends appropriate weekly project meetings to ensure that budgets are kept current as scopes evolve. This combination of craftsmanship and project management rigor is our trademark.

Craftsmanship. Above All Else.

I

n 1999, Jewett Farms + Co was started by a sole craftsman whose goal was to build the kind of cabinetry that would last a lifetime. Since then, much has changed, including the number of craftsmen and the size of our cabinet shop, but our commitment to excellence remains. Our ethos of craftsmanship is the backbone of who we are and how we build things. We see ourselves as philo-

sophically different from those who build mass-produced products. There will never be an assembly line at Jewett Farms + Co. Each cabinet is constructed from start to finish by a single cabinetmaker, who has spent their career developing those skills. Our drawers and doors are hand-fitted and hand-sanded, not because it’s the fastest way, but because it is the best way.

Jewett Farms + Co is deliberately different. Our approach to constructing cabinetry begins and ends with quality and respect for our craft. —Matthew Lord

With the ocean on one side and the blue bay on the other, the location of this Maine vacation home couldn’t be more heavenly. Multiple decks celebrate the spectacular location and offer bonus living space. “I was worried about building,” says the wife. “But our builder was wonderful. Everything went smoothly.” The well-worn path is a direct route to the sea.

t could be the salty air or the clear water. Maybe it’s the romance of misty mornings or the seabirds. Whatever it is, once smitten with the bliss of a Maine summer, visitors come back year after year. Take this family, for instance. The wife has known this slice of the state’s southern coast since childhood. Not surprisingly, her husband fell under its spell as well, and then, of course, so did their three children. The teeny cottage they purchased

years ago was the backdrop for many happy memories, but time was taking its toll. Too tight for an active family and too old to repair, down it came. With the help of architect Robert Freedman, up rose a more livable three-story

Custom cabinetry expert Jannell Zarba teamed with the clients and Rosenfeld to ensure the kitchen is as efficient as it is handsome. The cabinetry’s pale gray color—Benjamin Moore’s Silver Lake—lets the space blend seamlessly into the living and dining areas and doesn’t compete with the outdoors.

Shingle-style house in its place. “We wanted to get out from behind the dune and capture views we’d been missing,” the wife explains. To that end, the first level of the home is given over primarily to bedrooms for the almost-grown kids and guests. The open-plan kitchen, dining, and living space occupies the second level. The top floor is dedicated to the master suite. Today, there are postcard vistas at every window. But there’s something else, too: the bright blue-as-the-sky exterior gives just the barest hint of the magic inside. Working

closely with the wife, interior designer Katie Rosenfeld has created personality-filled rooms that she refers to as “quintessentially Maine.” “I think of this house as my soul sister,” Rosenfeld says. “My client is very artistic. Her bohemian spirit inspired me. I threw caution to the wind and piled it on.” Splashes of color and layers of textiles, patterns here and patterns there, enliven every inch from top to bottom. “It’s a delicate balance between granny-chic and boho-chic,” the designer explains.

A fun recipe of stripes, florals, and paisley raises the room’s spirit. FACING PAGE: A Rohl rainhead in the outdoor shower takes care of sandy beachgoers.

An inventory of the welcoming living area proves her right: the hearth’s handmade delft tiles are classic, the oversize ottoman is upholstered in a stunning antique rug, and there’s not a matchy-matchy fabric in sight. Even the window seats flaunt their own fetching, far-from-ho-hum blend of patterns. Meals transpire around the farmhouse trestle table in the dining area, and what better spot? Throw open the doors to the deck and there’s the sparkling ocean. With the aid of Jannell Zarba, of Damiana Design and Project Management, the kitchen came together as smoothly as the rest of the house. An abundance of cabinets—painted a soothing Benjamin Moore color called Silver Lake—provides ample storage and keeps the space tidy. In the nearby laundry room, cabinets painted a zingy yellow elevate the washing from mundane to almost fun. The same happy golden hue pops up again on a bureau in a guest bedroom, where visitors nod off under a checkerboard blanket and a custom duvet. The homeowners do their nighttime stargazing from their private third-floor aerie that, no surprise, sports its own charming play of colors and patterns. The room’s mood is as relaxing as a day at the

beach, which, come to think of it, is the ideal round-the-clock ambience for every vacation home. EDITOR’S NOTE: For details about this home, see

says the wife. By the time they finally purchased their ten-acre lakeside parcel in the Southern Berkshires, Winkleman was on speed dial. The couple chose the area for its “combination of natural beauty and cultural offerings,” says the husband. Their particular plot, however, was long and narrow and featured an incredibly steep driveway and a small, non-winterized fishing cabin. The building was unsalvageable, they decided, and the driveway, per the town, would have to be entirely regraded. Working closely with landscape architect Todd Richardson, the clients and architect sited a new house close to the lake. First, however, they needed to blast out rock and transform the topography, making way for a

but they didn’t want to feel alone in a big, empty house when the boys weren’t there. Winkelman found a clever answer to that challenge by dividing the living quarters. The 2,980-square-foot, two-story primary house sits closer to the water and features an open living/dining/kitchen area, a master suite, and a screened-in porch on the first level. A guest suite

DESIGNER CLAUDIA KALUR CREATED A SPACE THAT, SHE SAYS, “DOESN’T FIGHT THE ARCHITECTURE OR THE OUTDOORS.” upstairs welcomes visitors. Out back, Winkelman clustered three tiny cabins, one for each son. These sit above the garage, which is built into the hillside and also functions as a retaining wall. At 364 square feet, each cabin has two beds, a closet, and a bath. A pedestrian bridge connects the cabins to the parents’ house, where Mom strategically added a second-floor kitchenette. “With three sons, it’s all about the food,” she says. “So, they can’t stay in their cabins for too long!” It’s an act of deliberate social engineering, adds Winkelman with a chuckle, that ensures family interaction. Town regulations required that the pedestrian bridge reach fourteen feet, which drove up the height of interior spaces in the main house. Winkelman took that opportunity to create lofty ceilings and dramatic views, running walls of windows up to the roof in many places. A series of shed roofs serves to maximize sight lights and disperse the building’s bulk, the architect explains. In line with Winkelman and Richardson’s efforts, designer Claudia Kalur created a space that, she says, “doesn’t fight the architecture or the outdoors.” The clients desired a modern cabin aesthetic. “We wanted to work with nature,” the Connecticut-based designer says, “but make it sophisticated and chic.” She developed a warm, relaxed palette of rusts, mustards, and various greens inspired by the surrounding seasonal views. Details like an extra-deep window seat, leather kitchen stools, and sofas with rich, textured fabrics deliver the cozy, yet smart, lakeside decor the couple sought. Now the homeowners have their who, their how, their where— and their Wow. EDITOR’S NOTE: For details about this home,

o toile? No problem! ¶ That’s what interior designer Tiffany LeBlanc thought to herself when she was asked to make a new home in Wellesley, Massachusetts— a 6,500-square-foot classic Colonial—feel more like a boutique hotel than, well, a classic Colonial in Wellesley.

Very little was done to the existing fixtures and finishes in the kitchen, although LeBlanc brought in the comfy counter stools and trio of hanging pendants. FACING PAGE: A custom banquette, roomy table, and eye-catching prints create a welcoming vibe in the breakfast area.

“THEY WANTED A SOPHISTICATED HOME, BUT ONE THAT WAS ATYPICAL,” SAYS TIFFANY LEBLANC. “NOT OVERLY DECORATED, SUITABLE FOR KIDS, BUT NOT DUMBED DOWN.”

The house had good bones and some nice touches, including lovely coffered ceilings. Instinctively, it felt good to the homeowner; the flow from room to room made sense. But she had something more special in mind. And because she and her husband have three children, their “boutique hotel” would have to be family-friendly, too. “They wanted a sophisticated home, but one that was atypical,” says LeBlanc. “Not overly decorated—she specifically requested no toile—suitable for kids, but not dumbed down.” They wouldn’t be taking a single stick of furniture from their old home. “We started with all new furnishings because we saw this as our ‘grown-up’ house,” says the homeowner. A near-blank slate is a designer’s dream, but it can be daunting. “You have to corral your ideas and decide how far you want to go,” says LeBlanc. “Ask yourself what you can live with, and how to get where you need to be.” A few architectural changes came first, including “peeling back some of the molding and details,” the designer says. For a more modern, linear look in the living room, she replaced the mantel and heavy millwork around the fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling quartzite facade. She kept the sitting room’s traditional trim, but toned it down by removing the upper shelving flanking the fireplace and painting the coffered ceiling a half tone

lighter than the walls. Then she chose unexpected pieces for the room, including a purple Wesley Hall sofa and blue leather wing chairs. The designer says she “wanted to achieve luxury without trying too hard. “So we added lots of texture, layers, wallpaper, and wool woven rugs that make rooms feel more intimate.” The artwork is deliberately eclectic. In the dining room, a metallic ikat wallpaper by Jim Thompson adds depth. Overhead, the designer hung a favorite fixture—the Cloud by Apparatus Studio. “Every designer has a love affair with a piece,” she says. “They tuck it away and know they will use it somewhere. This was mine, and it was time.” The oversize painting of penguins by an illustrator in the U.K. was selected because “it’s kitschy and makes you smile.” In the calming master suite, LeBlanc chose a matte wallpaper to contrast with the woven carpet. The enchanting tête-à-tête is a favorite with the children, while the homeowner says she absolutely adores her desk. “I still love writing cards, and it’s the perfect place to be reflective and write notes,” she says. LeBlanc clearly took care to engage— not obliterate—the home’s classic elements. “Detailing and tailored accents let you know the space is very refined and thoughtful,” she says. “Contemporary nods make it feel more urban, more timeless than traditional.” And there’s not an inch of toile in sight.

A closed-off sitting room provided an opportunity for the designer to go bold with art and color, including powderblue leather wing chairs and a purple sofa. FACING PAGE: The bedroom is a study in elegance, with its inviting custom bed, paisley-patterned drapes, and a cage-like alabaster chandelier.

GRAND PLAN

A family’s renovated property on the shores of Lake Champlain is a master class in design execution and craftsmanship, both inside and out.

TEXT BY BOB CURLEY  |  PHOTOGRAPHY BY JIM WESTPHALEN The mudroom’s checkerboard floor is made of local Panton stone, matching that used in the walls of the house and on the property. FACING PAGE: The kitchen, with its eighteen-foot ceilings and copious food-prep surfaces, was the centerpiece of the renovation of the main house.

Opposing twin fireplaces warm this stone-sided room at the center of the house, enlivened by the face of an antique French clock. The custom mantel incorporates an oval design found on the transom over the front door, and the bench and sling chair provide extra seating in a compact room.

Painted in a blue tone to match the waters of Lake Champlain, the dining room features a landscape mural by a local artist and a chandelier with wax candles whose light reflects off a high-gloss ceiling that increases the sense of space. The bay windows are original to the house.

alls are typically built to keep people out, or keep things in. In New England, rock walls have been used for centuries to create boundaries around farmers’ fields or property lines, but it’s the rare wall that provides connection rather than separation. The new owners of a 140-acre property on Lake Champlain in Panton, Vermont, knew they had a unique opportunity to reshape the mixed landscape of woodlands, open fields, and lakeshore to match their vision of a pastoral New England home. 145

Hodgson Landscape Architecture

A stone-sided house, dating to the 1920s, was ideally sited for spectacular lake views, but a historic farmhouse along the main road at the property entrance was too distant to serve as a guest house. Working together, builder Birdseye and architectural firm TruexCullins separated the old farmhouse and barn and moved them a quarter-mile deeper into the property, re-siting each close to the lake. The Arnold House—so named because Benedict Arnold once slept within—was renovated as a guest house overlooking Arnold Bay, while a onetime barn was restored as additional guest quarters facing White Bay. Taking advantage of the spectacular views, however, necessitated placing the guest houses at a remove from the main house. That’s where Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture stepped in, designing and building a gracefully arched, 350-foot-long wall and accompanying footpaths to provide a physical and design link between the three distinctive buildings.

“The serpentine stone wall becomes the stitch that links the main house to the other buildings,” says the firm’s Keith Wagner. “The arc of the wall traces the arc of the bay in a symmetrical way off the centerline of the house. How it dances through the trees and links the pool and guest houses is really about the wall taking a walk through the property.” Most of the interior design and construction took place within the existing footprint of the house. Birdseye combined a warren of smaller rooms into larger spaces: the first floor of the central, stone-walled section of the house became a spacious living room, while a sizable section of the former second floor was removed to create a generous kitchen and a circular stairway leading to the master bedroom. The owners—avid cooks—“wanted the kitchen to be the most important room in the house,” says TruexCullins architect Rolf Kielman.

4/2/20 4:40 PM


Designer Cathy Chapman’s vision for the interior included mismatched kitchen cabinetry for visual interest, a stove placed in an alcove designed to resemble a repurposed fireplace, and sconces and pendants used in place of recessed lighting to help retain a vintage feel. “It’s made to look like an old farmhouse, which it was,” says Chapman. The one major addition to the house was an elliptical screened-in porch at the rear, warmed by a stone fireplace with comfy all-season chairs arrayed around a table made from wood salvaged from a tree on the property. Kielman says the key to the project’s success was restraint. “The owners understood that not everything needed to be pumped up,” he says. “The house didn’t need to get a lot bigger.” Instead, the clients and their team wisely adhered to the “less is more” philosophy of New England’s building tradition.

Adding Lighting to Millwork

W

With the influx of smart-home design, incorporating lighting into millwork and trim continues to increase in popularity. Planning early ensures that millwork can accommodate your lighting choices. Whether the lighting is to accentuate an art piece, illuminate a cabinet for everyday use, or create ambiance, lighting is finding a home in custom millwork more frequently. When I asked our team about where lighting adds the greatest effect to our millwork, Richard Roy, estimator, replied, “In dressing rooms with deep casework that is typically cast in dark shadows. Lighting adds richness and a sense of adventure.” Project man-

ager Patty Lazok agreed: “Specialty lights integrated into clothing hang-rods in closets, and lights inside of drawer cabinets that activate when the drawer opens.” Patty commented, “Specifying lighting is such an artform.” Richard chimed in, “Adding lights to our casework can make a room feel alive and fun. The selection of the right lighting can be a challenging task and should be left to a lighting specialist.” Our president, Ken Bertram, noted that adding lighting to millwork “is an important part of the design. It accentuates the beauty of the finishes and components when applied properly.”

One Call Gets it Done

M

aintaining a high-quality home involves a web of service providers, appointments, seasonal services, small and large repairs, and upgrades that can overwhelm even the most organized homeowners. Add the increasing technology needs of today’s homes, and it makes sense that more and more homeowners are choosing to hire professionals to manage their home maintenance needs. The trend we see is that homeowners are moving away from the “handyman” model and toward a business like ours that can mobilize not only our own team of skilled laborers, but also a network of carefully vetted service providers, artisans, and technicians to address any home maintenance need. Kistler and Knapp designed its Home Services

“Our mission is to give all of our Home Services clients peace of mind, knowing that their largest investment is being cared for by a team of professionals 365 days a year. We recently opened our Cape and Islands office to expand our services to seasonal homes as well.” —Karen Vaillancourt, Director of Home Services, Kistler & Knapp

Division around the concept of giving homeowners a customized approach to the care of their home. As part of every new client relationship, we provide a complimentary, comprehensive home evaluation. This valuable service is designed to find and solve small problems before they become costly and is revisited every year as part of our annual review process. We provide additional home services to fit each client’s needs, including offering a personal field technician for minor repairs and consultations; tracking recurring maintenance and scheduling seasonal and annual services; supervising projects large and small; and arranging our Home Watch service when clients are away.

Reclaimed Materials in the Landscape

T

he use of reclaimed materials brings a vintage look to one’s property that is timeless yet trendy. It’s popular among homeowners, and we are enjoying incorporating these unique pieces into our designs. We search local quarries and stone yards to find the perfect materials. In the image above, we mixed historic weathered granite and reclaimed brick for the walkways. Antique granite posts bookend the garden entry while the millstone provides a thematic center point. These materials provided a natural match for the age and style of the house and gave it an established feel. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing to design with reclaimed materials, but they are also environmentally friendly. Because of their durability and the fact that they do not need to be fabricated, old materials have a smaller carbon footprint than most newly made items. With every design, we aim to complement the style, age, and grace of the home’s architecture, while grounding the building into the landscape. Reclaimed materials are an essential part of such an endeavor.

“I really like how antique materials bring history into the projects we design at a Blade of Grass. It’s so appropriate for the New England landscape.” —Jim Douthit

Architectural Specialty Glass

R

ailings are often necessary for any home, office, or business with more than one level. The recent trend is to leave these balcony, stair, and deck spaces unobstructed by solid bannisters. Sleek and modern glass railings are fast becoming the designer’s choice for their elegance, safety, strength, and endless design possibilities. The minimalist aesthetic of glass offers an unobstructed sightline to other architectural elements in the home or to the view from outside decks. Low-iron glass has crystal-clear transparency, which allows existing lighting to brighten the space and really make it pop. Glass rail systems are available in an endless variety of styles, but can be broken down into three main categories: shoe and rail systems use a solid metal shoe that secures the glass at the base (see photo); post and rail systems use metal posts with offset fittings that secure the glass and create a more industrial look; and lastly, retrofit systems fit glass panels into existing wood railings for a softer touch. Beautiful, stylish, and sleek—architectural glass has become the designer’s choice for today’s homes and businesses.

“Glass has moved beyond the bath in so many ways. From glass bannisters and glass surrounds for decks and firepits, to glass backsplashes and sliding partitions, designers are continuously pushing the boundaries of these remarkable products.”

BELLS, WHISTLES, AND BEYOND Created for a very discriminating client, this recently completed custom home in Wellesley, Massachusetts—designed by the architectural firm Alpine—is as far from a McMansion as anything she’s ever seen, says listing agent Traci Shulkin. “This home is truly different. It’s intriguing, with multiple rooflines, and the most extraordinary craftsmanship,” she says. Three years in the making, the clean-lined 11,000-square-foot home feels spacious yet compartmentalized, with many points of entry and even more points of visual interest. A white brick exterior hints at the elegance within, where a modern farmhouse aesthetic prevails—from

the foyer’s herringbonepatterned wood floor to the eleven-foot beamed ceilings and floor-toceiling windows that flood the home with natural light. Finishes and fixtures throughout the common rooms have a timeless quality that invites personal interpretation. A work transfer prevented the client from ever moving in, so every inch of the home is pristine. Says Shulkin: “It’s a blank canvas just waiting for a new homeowner’s touch.”

GRAND DAME ON THE WATERFRONT The town of Essex on the Connecticut shoreline is known for its scenic views, marinas, tree-lined streets, shops and restaurants, and rich history. This gracious Victorian built in 1870 is an iconic example of the town’s historic architecture—made entirely new. Five years ago, a sweeping renovation of the landmark waterfront home included everything from the addition of up-to-date mechanicals to the restoration of the ornate trim under the eaves. There were no real changes made to the exterior, but the interior was opened up to appeal to a more modern aesthetic, even if some

classic details, like a curved foyer, were left intact. A widow’s walk was removed and a striking skylight constructed in its place. Sunlight fills the stairwell from the foyer up to the attic, now an open space with original beams, a full bath—and a world of possibilities. New windows and a row of French doors enhance the water views. The home sits on an acre and a half, surrounded by other beautifully restored old houses and some grand new ones. Says listing agent Colette Harron: “It’s in very good company, within walking distance to the village, in the prettiest spot around.”

WRAPAROUND WARMTH Back in the day, when air conditioning wasn’t a thing, the porch wasn’t just a decorative add-on. It was a necessary space where people gathered to cool off, hang out, and watch the world go by. Wide enough for furniture and people, this home’s wraparound porch was the original outdoor room. And it’s only one of the property’s charms. With a desirable Lexington, Massachusetts, location and curb appeal in spades, this circa-1902 home has been restored with authenticity and an eye toward modern family living. It’s a hybrid, architecturally speaking—with elements of Arts and Crafts, American Foursquare, and Victorian styles. The interiors feature formal and informal spaces by design, says listing agent Andrea Jackson. There’s a grand foyer and statement staircase. Honduran mahogany millwork in the frontto-back living/dining room was restored, while the rest of the trim was painted white. Coffered ceilings and crown moldings abound. The original windows were painstakingly restored and rebalanced,

with weighted ropes replaced by brass chains. For the ultimate in luxury and privacy, the entire third floor is dedicated to a master suite with a stunning bath, spacious walk-in closet, and home office. “The renovation was designed to respect the past and to meet the needs of a twentyfirst-century lifestyle,” says Jackson.

As we write, the world is in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. All we can hope is that by the time you read this, the worst will have passed, and our community will be making plans to resume the business of creating beautiful design in New England. When life gets back to some semblance of normal, one of the first things we want to do is visit the new showrooms at the Boston Design Center, because there is a slew of them. Scavolini, Downsview Kitchens, and Jewett Farms have opened kitchen showrooms on the second floor, while Tile Showcase and Discover Tile moved into the fourth floor. Holly Hunt and Brown Jordan found permanent homes, while Structure Design Gallery, a collaboration between System 7, Wolfers Lighting, and Boston Shade, can be found along the Promenade. Who else is on the Promenade? Circa Lighting. Visit bostondesign. com to confirm showroom locations and hours. Before the pandemic changed daily life as we know it, there was a lot happening in the design community. First and foremost, senior designer at Poggenpohl, and 2014 New England Design Hall of Fame inductee, Rosemary Porto retired at the end of March. What will she focus on after thirty-five years (!) in New England design? Porto plans to write fiction. (No pressure, but we can’t wait to read it!) Also in March, the New England Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art announced the ten winners of its Tenth Bulfinch Awards. Honorees include Patrick Ahearn Architect, Hendricks Churchill, G.P. Schafer Architect, Dan Gordon Landscape Architects,

GARDEN ENVY

Knight Architecture, John Canning & Co., Lisa Tharp Design, Rosales + Partners, Haver & Skolnick Architects, and Richard Krysiak, president of Tradewood Windows & Doors. A gala recognizing the winners will take place in September. While we’re on the topic of awards, S+H Construction won a 2020 Director’s Award from the Somerville Preservation Commission for its work restoring the front porch on a historic home built in the 1890s. Congrats! The Portland Group, a familyowned plumbing, heating, and airconditioning company, celebrates its ninetieth anniversary this year. The company, under the helm of CEO Michael Fox and president Benjamin Rose, has seven showrooms in New England, including its signature space, Splash, in Newton, Massachusetts. Happy anniversary to the team. This spring, Verona Appliances unveiled a new tool that allows interior designers to customize their own Designer Series range. Choose from any combination of fuel type, knob color, and base color. More info can be found at veronaappliances.com. And though we don’t like to end on a sad note, Henry N. Cobb, architect of Boston’s John Hancock Tower, passed away this spring at the age of 93. Cobb was a founding partner of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners. (For those keeping track, we wrote about Boston’s Cobb-designed Harbor Towers in the 2020 issue of Rise.) Cobb also left his mark on Portland’s skyline: his firm designed the Charles Shipman Payson Building at the Portland Museum of Art in Maine. Our condolences to his family. —Edited by Erika Ayn Finch

Shore Style ooking to escape? Celebrated artist John Derian’s decoupage plates, trays, and other decorative accessories recall bygone summer days with a number of new nautical motifs—think sailboat and oyster plates, and tiny trays adorned with seasonal flora. These five-by-seven-inch oval plates feature vintage shell designs, and are available in more than a dozen colors. The motif harkens to carefree days along New England’s quintessential sandy shores. Derian has a home in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and his eponymous shop there is open throughout the summer, beginning mid-June through September. His New York outposts are open year-round. $64/each. johnderian.com
