ED IT OR’S NO TE PHOTOGRAPHY BY SARAH PRAK

Great Cranberry Island

Tenants Harbor

T

ime is a funny thing. While we can’t stop it (no matter what the night cream in my medicine cabinet tells me), what struck me about the homes in this issue is the way that they seem to bend it. When you return home to wherever you grew up, doesn’t time seem to have somehow stood still? Sure, the trees may be a bit taller, the sofa may sport new upholstery, but when the spirit of place is there—when that’s right—time seems to pause. On Great Cranberry Island, a home’s recently redecorated living area is constructed of centuriesold lumber salvaged from three dilapidated barns, including one linked to Thoreau. It also bears evidence of old island connections: the architect who designed it is the homeowner’s childhood pal, and the kids—now grown—still sneak into the basement to scrawl their names on the wall (Reimagining History, page 76). In the midcoast, a couple built a new home for aging in place that also pays homage to the past, both with its Arts and Crafts details, such as natural materials and motifs, and with its locale: a peninsula the family used to visit on sailing trips when the children, now in their 20s, were young (Back to Natural, page 92). And then, at Higgins Beach, a pair of cottages—formerly surplus buildings that housed wartime laborers—have made a comeback with

updated, open floor plans and coastal touches. It’s now the stateside home base for an American family living abroad (Simplicity & Ease, page 110). Finally, in Kennebunk, a classic colonial (at least, from the outside) invokes the heritage of one of the homeowners with its touches of Danish minimalism. The couple opted for an overhaul rather than moving, having raised their three daughters there and spent years tending the garden (Scandinavian Style, page 62). Emma Kelly, the landscaper of the Higgins Beach property, says her goal was to create “a muscle memory of childhood.” Perhaps more important than each of the home’s physical histories is the collective history that each of these homes contains, the intangibles in the pasts of the people who occupy it. Each family has its own legends and traditions that will be passed on, stories that will forever be told and retold around the kitchen table. The houses in this issue are designed for ever-expanding families and growing-up-too-fast children, for homeowners who plan to age in place, and for some who make their permanent home abroad, but what makes these homes truly special is that they’re all designed to be, summer after summer, wonderfully untouched by time.

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE In 1972, Tom Moser committed his life to craft. His mission was to restore the lost art of woodworking while establishing a community that would allow craftsmen to make a living doing the work they loved. This remains our mission today with some 70 craftsmen. The mark of each maker tells the story of each piece. Each is made with skill and precision, and reveals not only how it was created, but also why it will last a lifetime.

I LOVE MY JOB

Now, don’t misunderstand me: this is not an easy job. I’ve seen and dealt with a lot of distractions since November 2006, when I decided (with very little support) that print was not yet dead. We were sending the January issue of Maine Home+Design magazine out the door and people were questioning our sanity. Let’s start with that. My first year of MH+D was spent convincing business owners that quality print publications still have an important place. We knew that readers wanted to hold something, dog-ear the pages, tear pages out for their idea books, and sit on the porch perusing the pages over a glass of wine. Thankfully, our readers were the ones who proved us right: realtors, builders, designers, and architects started reporting that they were seeing MH+D on nearly every coffee table from Kittery to Bar Harbor and beyond. One reason that I love my job is that, beyond the obvious—printing magazines, airing shows, and posting online content— we are also very, very good at creating community. When I say we are good at it, I mean the collective “we,” the entire crew that I work with every day. Our monthly Cinq a Septs regularly attract more than 150 of our magazine friends and family. The 30-plus people whom I work with are as curious about Maine and the Mainers who live here, as well as those who want

KC featuring

to live here, as I am. We share a common curiosity and respect for people’s stories. My greatest joy is seeing our community grow and get together at our myriad events. Second, I love my job because I’m an unabashed lover of business—not only mine but other businesses here in Maine. I get a kick out of looking inside them, understanding what makes them tick, and trying to find the secret sauce that makes them thrive. I think about how they give back, the number of families they impact through their biweekly payroll, and the effect their payroll has on everyone in their part of Maine. And I especially love to help them grow and become sustainable enterprises. A strong economy, goodpaying jobs, and the personal pride that comes from having solid work are critical in making Maine stronger for all of us. As you read the stories in this issue, also linger over the ads. Take a minute to consider the men and women who stand behind the particular product or service being presented. These are Mainers, working hard, making a living, contributing to their communities, building their own dreams in the process. I think about these people every day. I want them all to have a good life in Maine, however they define that, and to love their job like I love my own.

WE LOVE MAINE. We fill our work days creating Maine-centric media products—publishing magazines and guides, producing radio shows, managing social media sites, developing websites, filming videos, producing events—because of this simple tenet. Our staff have stayed here, come back here, or moved here because we love Maine’s rich history, its unique character, and the people who live here, and most important, because we believe in Maine’s potential. We simultaneously love the Maine we grew up in and fully embrace the reality that things change and evolve. And we bear witness to that happening here. We are cheerleaders for Maine as a place for people to live, stay, and thrive—a place for people from away to move to, a place for second homeowners to buy into, a place to raise children, a place to start and operate a business—as well as a place to visit and explore, a place to escape and heal. And, a place to be inspired. We cover Maine in a positive light. We intentionally leave the negativity and snark to other media outlets. There is a place for everything, and we honor that. But that place is not here. So if you love Maine, please turn to us with your reading eyes, your listening ears, your follows and your likes, your attendance, and your advertising and sponsorships. Explore what we believe is the best Maine has to offer, on the pages of our magazines and guides, through the airwaves, at events, and via social media.

GARAGE DOORS WE GIVE BACK. At Maine Media Collective our mission is to make a substantial and unique contribution to supporting Maine’s nonprofit community statewide, regionally, and at the town level. We believe that the work Maine’s nonprofit organizations do, individually and collectively, makes our lives better and Maine a better place to live.

We have established long-term relationships with over 120 nonprofits and community-based organizations. We give to these organizations by providing, free of charge, services ranging from advertising to graphic design, brand development, marketing advice, online announcements, and social media engagement. We often include nonprofit organizations in our editorial coverage through feature articles and/or recaps of their events.

Q+A

with Rob Troxler of Phi Builders and Architects on the eco-benefits of HRV and ERV systems HRV (heat recovery ventilation) and ERV (energy recovery ventilation) systems are becoming a standard component of today’s well-insulated, energy-efficient “tight” homes. They filter air to mitigate toxins and purify the home while saving heat energy. Rob Troxler of Phi Builders and Architects explains why he selected an HRV system for a home on the Saint George peninsula featured in Back to Natural, page 92.

Q. WHY WAS AN HRV NEEDED? A. The owners wanted a very tight,

efficient home with good air sealing and a high R-value. This necessitated a way to turn over the air to keep the interior healthy and balanced. We determined that an HRV (rather than an ERV) would be necessary based on the energy efficiency of the unit, projected humidity levels within the dwelling, seasonal considerations (windows open in summer versus air-conditioning, for example), and the insulation level (high R-value) of the building. HRVs tend to be best for removing humidity in winter more than summer, while ERVs moderate humidity better in summer than winter.

Q. WHAT MODEL WAS SELECTED? A. We chose the Lifebreath 155 Max

HRV for its efficiency: it recovers 85 percent of heat energy. It’s the best option for a cold winter with minimal humidity, such as on an island in Maine. The head unit is located in the attached garage, and ducting runs to various areas of the house for optimized airflow, with a remote keypad control unit located in the entry of the home.

Q. HAVE THERE BEEN ANY DRAWBACKS?

A. There’s certainly an electrical

cost to run the HRV that is not necessarily offset by the increased efficiency of the home. This said, the long-term health (both home health and the health of the home’s occupants) should be increased with this system in place—something that should create a potential cost savings over the years. To the cynical, an HRV may be just another mechanical thing that will eventually fail, but if a sincere attempt is made to consider and weigh all of the various factors before installing an HRV, the benefits should far offset any potential downside.

For kids who rely on school meals during the academic year, summer exacerbates food insecurity. At Full Plates Full Potential, we ensure that children have reliable meals when school is out by connecting them with summer meals in their communities. We recruit new meal sites, reach out to low-income families, and make grants to support the start-up, operation and expansion of summer meal programs. We know which programs are effective to combat hunger. We create plans to make these summer connections, and with your support, we will end child hunger.

SHAPING SOCIETY PETER C. ANDERSON ON PURPOSE, FORM, AND A SPIRIT OF PLACE

“A

s an architect, my value to a client goes beyond providing solutions to the basic problem of delivering this much area for that many dollars,” says Peter C. Anderson of SMRT in Portland. “While those are important fundamentals, our buildings are more than investments of time and money. They are investments in ourselves, our communities, and the embodiment of how people see their place in the world.” MH+D asks Anderson to tell us more.

IN MH+D’S CONTINUING COLLABORATION WITH AIA MAINE, WE PRESENT TO YOU EACH MONTH A DESIGN CONCEPT FROM AN ARCHITECT’S POINT OF VIEW. 50 MAINEHOMEDESIGN.COM

MHD Layout July.indd 50

5/30/17 3:17 PM


Q. A.

work?

How is the concept of purpose relevant to your

All projects have an underlying purpose, a reason for being, that is more than its mere programmatic function. Understanding that purpose is an essential step in the process of architecture. This is not always as easy as it sounds. Purpose isn’t always self-evident. Purpose usually is not a baseline proposition. Most buildings are built to serve communities. These communities are made up of individuals who often have different perspectives on what the shared purpose is. This can be as true for a family building a new home as it is for a building committee that is charged with planning a public building. For example, during my work on a recent courthouse project, the term access to justice was heard frequently from the chief justice and multiple committee members when discussing key project objectives. This may be a simple phrase; however, it holds varying levels of meaning and interpretation. For me as the architect, this meant sitting down and gaining an understanding of what the deeper meaning was and how it related to the purpose of the project.

Q. A.

What about form?

The saying that form follows function is a half-truth. While I believe function plays a significant role in shaping form, it is the shaping of space, material selections, and construction details that creates a bridge between purpose and place. This is where the art of architecture begins. At our best, architects give form to purpose—that is to say, we shape space to create places that reinforce our client’s purpose. During those courthouse committee meetings, along with the expression access to justice, the word transparency came up more than a few times. To me as the form giver, that opens up a literal interpretation—substituting glass for stone and bringing in light to make the judicial process visible. The public can literally see into the building. Traditional iconography has the court as a stone temple to justice. In my mind, a fundamental principle of the U.S. justice system is that the administration of justice takes place in public view. Stone temples do not connote transparency or access. The introduction of daylight and exterior views provides an added value. Courthouses can be stressful places; many occupants are not there under ideal circumstances. Natural light and openness serve as stress reducers, another way that purpose and form are speaking to each other.

Q. A.

How is a building a reflection of the society it serves, and vice versa? A building is a tangible thing. It exists in the physical world, and that means it is something we perceive through our senses. The experience of a place can be evocative. This sense of place is often what we remember about the buildings and environments where we live, work, and visit. The lighting, proportions, materials, smell, and acoustics all communicate a sense of place. Evidence-based design is based on the premise that our physical environment can influence our minds and bodies. This approach has proven effective in the design of health care environments with empirical evidence demonstrating that buildings can be therapeutic. If our built environment can help us heal, surely it is capable of supporting us in other ways as well. The ultimate aim of form giving is the creation of places that speak to the purpose, places that are imbued with a spirit capable of evoking another dimension of feeling beyond our simple sense of touch. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit the Acropolis of Athens in Greece, where I could walk among those ancient stones and admire the perfect proportions. This piece of architecture was so important to the people who created it, that they put the best of everything they had into this one structure. Whether it was the edifice or the sculpture that adorned it, it was a manifestation of the best craftsmen, architects, and laborers had to offer. It remains one of the most memorable places I have visited. The experience also had me asking, “Who are the gods now? And how does architecture serve them?” There’s a lot of talk now about infrastructure investment. Our scale of need suggests a magnitude comparable to the Great Depression with the Works Progress Administration. Look at what our priorities were then: the Hoover Dam is functional, but it is also a work of art. How did beauty enter into the equation where dam construction is concerned? What will our generation’s investments say about us 100 years from now? In the end, our public buildings speak to who we are as a people and where we place our values. MH+D

fficially, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Haley’s Metal Shop in Biddeford. But Brian Haley, who runs the fifth-generation family business with his son Matt, says its history may go much farther back. In the early 1980s, after Brian and his sister Joyce joined their father at the company, they decided that Haley’s needed a logo. They asked him what year the business had been founded, and he said 1917. “There wasn’t really a whole lot of basis to that except that my great-grandfather, Robert Jordan, was in business in 1917,” says Brian. “We found a newspaper article about him doing a church in Biddeford—covering a 12-foot-tall cross with copper— and my father said he had found a receipt from that job. So we ran with it.” However, his sister did some more digging and discovered that in 1850 an ancestor was a tinsmith in Kennebunk. “Really, there’s a line of at least seven people since 1850,” says Brian with a chuckle. “My dad sold us short.”

In Jordan’s day, the business was a one-man operation located in downtown Biddeford. “He was a craftsman,” Brian says. “He worked with copper in his dress shirt and tie.” Jordan’s son-in-law Joe Haley apprenticed with him and eventually became a partner in the business, then named Jordan and Haley. By the time Joe’s son Tom (Brian’s father) came on board in the early 1950s, the company had moved to Route 1. The name was changed to Haley’s Metal Shop, and in 1959 they built the facility it still occupies today. The two-story administrative section of the building is surprisingly modern and bright, with pale gray walls and a sculptural stainless-steel stair railing that was made in the shop. Like his father before him, Matt was not pressured to be part of the family business. He studied business management at Pennsylvania’s Bucknell University and met his wife, Susie, a native of New Jersey, in Australia on a semester abroad. He followed her to New York City

after graduation, where he got a job teaching high school. “I started with a group of sophomores, and by the time they graduated, I was ready to leave, too,” he says. “I wanted to get back to Maine.” The operations manager at Haley’s Metal Shop was retiring and recommended him for the job. “I wanted to do something creative,” Matt recalls. “Someone had told my dad that running a small business is one of the most creative things you can do because of the decisions you have to think about and make and also how you have to adapt to everything that comes to you on a daily basis.” As operations manager, Matt oversees the sheet metal department as well as the service division, Total Comfort Services. Brian, a mechanical engineer, designs and manages the company’s commercial and residential projects. Haley’s offers a diverse menu of services, ranging from fabricating and installing traditional HVAC systems to geothermal systems, heat pumps, and hoods for restaurants. They also service HVAC equipment and clean air ducts. Commercial projects are the backbone of the business, including the soon-to-open 43North restaurant at Spring Point Marina in South Portland, which “has a little bit of everything,” says Brian: heat pumps, rooftop units, and welded ducts. “My great-grandfather did nothing but metal; my grandfather added warm-air heating— he installed the first warm-air furnace in Maine—and my father

added air-conditioning, which my grandfather thought was crazy,” he says. Air-conditioning is increasingly in demand, particularly in southern Maine, say the Haleys. “Today, we don’t eat at a restaurant that’s not air-conditioned, and we don’t go to work in an office that’s not air-conditioned,” says Brian. “Then we go home at night and it’s like, ‘Wait a minute, I’m dying here.’ Our comfort level is established by what we do all day long.” In older homes, Haley’s will often employ ductless units. “They’re very easy to retrofit for any space,” says Matt. Geothermal systems, which are operated by electricity, involve “creating a radiator in the earth,” Brian explains. “We either take heat away from the earth and push it into the building, or in the summertime, we remove heat from the building and push it back into the earth.” Haley’s Metal Shop’s offices are entirely heated and cooled with a geothermal system, and the company is now in the process of converting the nearly 150-year-old Dyer Library and Saco Museum to geothermal heating and cooling, replacing “old, behemoth furnaces that just guzzled oil,” says Matt. Haley’s has more than 40 full-time employees, including some who have been with the company for decades. “There’s a lot of loyalty here, and we strongly believe in supporting them,” says Matt. “They’re our best asset; at the end of the day,

they’re all craftspeople.” On a spring day in the shop, a dozen employees wearing Haley’s uniform shirts, safety glasses, and earplugs are working on a variety of metal-fabrication projects. Two men are pulling sheets of steel off a series of large rollers and feeding the sheets into a machine that creates edges where it will be folded to make a section of ductwork. Father and son go out to lunch together every workday. “In my world, it’s a perk to have lunch with your son,” says Brian. He estimates he has another eight to ten years before he starts thinking about retiring. “Our goal is just to try to keep getting better, and the primary way to do that is to develop employees, which he’s pretty good at,” Brian says, smiling at his son. Brian also attributes the company’s longevity to its diverse range of products and services. “We service equipment, we do air-duct cleaning, we fabricate specialty items—that all helps us during downturns in the economy,” he says. And if you’re looking for a copper roof, they’ll do that too, just like back in 1917. MH+D

Scandinavian Style

Inside a classic colonial in Kennebunk, Dagmar and Kevin Sullivan have created a modern home of plush comfort and streamlined style

Although Dagmar and Kevin Sullivan’s colonial home in Kennebunk features a traditional exterior (painted in Sherwin-Williams’s Flagstone) that remains largely unchanged from when it was built 16 years ago, the interior is modern and Scandinavian-style, thanks to a major remodel by Graham Architects and Spang Builders. The garden is all Dagmar’s work and has shade-friendly plants such as hostas, azaleas, rhododendrons, Solomon’s seal, hellebores, and hydrangeas. Standard schnauzer Gaia lounges on the back porch (opposite) with Dagmar. The porch has speakers for music, installed by SmartHome Solutions under the pine plank ceiling. The wicker furniture is from Wayfair. 62 MAINEHOMEDESIGN.COM

agmar Sullivan loves to organize things so much that, “I would do it as a job,” she jokes. She invites me to take a look at her spice drawer. The sleek German-designed Poggenpohl cabinetry glides open without a sound, revealing a meticulously ordered drawer with every spice one could possibly need, from ginger to cumin to dill. “I’ll show you my closet in a minute,” she promises. Her Kennebunk house, where she lives with her husband, Kevin, and her youngest daughter (her older two daughters have left the nest), is marked by this kind of sharp attention to detail and comforting organization. Remodeled in 2013, the contemporary space pays tribute to Dagmar’s keen sense of style as well as her Danish heritage. The house was originally constructed in 2000, built from a floor plan designed by Dagmar and Kevin themselves. “Once we lived in it with three kids, we learned a lot about the space,” Dagmar says. The size and layout of the home weren’t working for the family, they decided. But they didn’t want to leave their neighborhood. “In reality, I couldn’t leave the yard that I worked so hard on,” Dagmar admits. And so they decided to completely restructure the interior: they moved walls to create a larger kitchen, shifted the guest bathroom to a new location, added additional storage space to the entryway, and reconfigured the second floor to create a more natural flow. “We stripped it down to the two-by-fours,” Dagmar says. The couple worked closely with architect David Graham of Graham Architects in Kennebunkport to design the new layout in what Graham

calls “a collaborative process.” “He understood my Danish style so well,” Dagmar adds. As a result, Dagmar’s aesthetics are visible in every conceivable corner, from the gray-stained, wide-plank white oak floors to the soft fur hides from Denmark that are thrown across sofas and on midcentury modern metal chairs. This style can best be described as a juxtaposition of soft and hard: it is sleek, streamlined, hyggeligt. Hyggeligt (pronounced hoo-gah-ligt) is a Danish word that describes a feeling of cozy well-being, like the feeling that comes from being snuggled up in fur next to a fire. On her farmhouse kitchen table, white pillar candles blaze next to a vase of fresh flowers and a bleached pair of antlers, creating a tableau that is at once both rustic and elegant. “I lit the candles before you got here,” Dagmar confesses. “I wanted it to feel hyggeligt.” Heat flows into the house through vents, piped in from deep in the earth thanks to the marvels of geothermal heating pumps, which were installed in 2013 by Biddeford's Jim Godbout Plumbing and Heating during the remodel managed by builder Tim Spang of Spang Builders in Kennebunkport. “It was one of the bigger geothermal jobs that I’ve done,” Spang says. “But it now runs the whole house, as far as heat goes, and we used spray-foam insulation that is the best quality on the market.” “We installed an entire energy recovery system in their house,” adds Graham, who worked closely with Spang on the remodel, which not only updated the interior structure of the home but also made it far more energy efficient. “We took the house from having a more traditional colonial floor

plan to an open one,” Graham says. “It was also important that we bring in Scandinavian design elements to reflect Dagmar’s background.” The result is “a bit different from the other houses in this region,” says Graham. From the street, the Sullivans’ home, with its stained dark gray clapboards, appears perfectly suited to the neighborhood. Inside is a different story. You could just as easily be in a Copenhagen townhouse as the suburbs of southern Maine. Fortunately, the simple lines of New England colonial homes pair well with Danish minimalism, and there are plenty of shared principles between Maine culture and Nordic style. One of these shared values is the emphasis on natural elements, such as earthy gardens and toasty fires, both of which can be found on the property. In the spacious and light-filled living room, embers are glowing in the modern fireplace (which Dagmar converted from an old-fashioned American-style

piece to a contemporary Danish woodstove with an insert), and there’s plenty of wood waiting next to it. A collection of birch logs sits stacked in a rectangular, sharp-edged steel holder that Dagmar purchased in Denmark and brought back in a suitcase. Dagmar and Kevin are so dedicated to the comforts of wood-burning fires that they’ve installed an outdoor fireplace on the front patio and another one in the backyard. “For three seasons out of the year, we eat in the yard,” she says. “We wanted a big fireplace outside so we could have our dinner in the garden. We have a separate set of dishes for the backyard, too.” When all three of their daughters are in town, they like to spend hours catching up in the backyard, lounging in the garden, and eating late dinners al fresco. Like the interior of her home, Dagmar’s backyard is a study in understated elegance. “Years ago, my mother told me that properties in the United States are so

large that you need to treat the land like a park,” she says. Dagmar took this advice to heart and designed hers with a focus on functionality. Boxwood, blueberry, and azalea bushes form neat hedges around the pool and the garden, while a green lawn provides plenty of space for entertaining guests. Rhododendrons and hydrangeas supply pops of color throughout the season, as do her newly planted rosebushes. “I had never done roses before, but I am just loving them,” she says. “I try to keep it simple, because I don’t want to be a slave to the garden. I want to enjoy it.” Dagmar clearly takes pleasure in order. When she shows me her closet, it’s filled with clothes of similar natural hues, rolled into tidy packets and arranged by color. Her linen closet follows a similar layout, as do her drawers and bookshelves. She knows where every item is located. And by choosing a simple color palette—white, natural linen, and soft gray— everything in her home is guaranteed to coordinate.

MHD Layout July.indd 72

“When we were designing the remodel, I knew I wanted everything to be square,” she says as she sips coffee from a blue and white Royal Copenhagen porcelain mug. She likes sharp edges, straight lines, and, she says, a well-packed dishwasher (“I don’t want any of my dishes to move in there.”) “I have chosen things that won’t go out of style,” she says. “It’s why all my couches are natural colored, so they will never look outdated.” After 16 years of living in this home, and 3 of them in the renovated version, Dagmar is finally satisfied with how the different elements and influences have come together. As she says, “I wake up every day, and I say to my husband, ‘There is nothing here I want to change.’” MH+D For more information, see Resources on page 152.

Reimagining HISTORY

ONE WOMAN ON GREAT CRANBERRY ISLAND TAKES THE OLD AND MAKES IT NEW AGAIN BY DANIELLE DEVINE PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEFF ROBERTS

At a Great Cranberry Island home (above) designed by Albert, Righter, and Tittmann Architects, decorated by Leandra Fremont-Smith Interiors, and built by Michael Westphal, days are spent at the beach swimming and collecting treasures from the shore. The mountains in the horizon are on Mount Desert Island. The kitchen is tucked away off one end of the barn with windows on all sides to take advantage of the natural light. Homeowner Emmy Neilson-Levin selected the large painting by local artist Henry Isaacs titled Mount Desert from the North Shore, Great Cranberry Island. Fremont-Smith added simple wooden bar stools by Lee Industries.

E

mmy Neilson-Levin spent some of the happiest days of her childhood on Great Cranberry Island with her three siblings. When she grew up and had a family of her own, she returned every summer to her parents’ home there. Over time Neilson-Levin’s parents acquired 50 acres on the island and gifted each of their four children a parcel of land. Later, although she and her late husband lived full-time in Seattle, they always talked about building a house from an old barn that they would relocate to their piece of property on the island. “I was given my marching orders when he passed away,” says Neilson-Levin. Each summer, the same families return to the small islands off Mount Desert Island known as the Cranberry Isles (Great Cranberry, Little Cranberry, and Sutton). During most of the year, Great Cranberry is home to about 40 residents, but the population increases to around 300 in the warmer months. Neilson-Levin grew up riding the ferry and playing with “the Tittmann boys.” One of the brothers, John B. Tittmann, is now an architect at Albert, Righter, and Tittmann Architects in Boston. “I knew, if I ever decided to build a house on the island, I would have Johnny design it,” says Neilson-Levin. When she approached Tittmann about fulfilling her and her husband’s dream, she had only one criterion: the house needed to be centered around a rescued barn with hand-hewn wood from pre-sawmill days.

The hub of the house is the living room, which is filled with cabinets of curiosities and books from summers past. The built-in seats on either side of the fireplace were reupholstered with Cowtan and Tout fabric along with the two club chairs. Two Serena and Lily leather X-stools are conveniently placed in front of the fireplace for a quick warm up.

Neilson-Levin is always on the hunt for interesting paintings of barn animals, such as this rooster (left, top), to add to the house’s collection. Fremont-Smith selected Knot and Company’s Capri rug from Bradford’s Rug Gallery (above). An antique chair (left) was reupholstered in a blue and white block print fabric.

Tittmann remembered lumber his mother had stored away years ago. In the 1980s Lucy Tittmann had saved an old barn from demolition in Concord, Massachusetts. It was rumored that the barn had once belonged to Henry David Thoreau. Lucy called in barn expert and restorer Richard Babcock (who passed away in 2014) to carefully dismantle it. Each piece of lumber (or “sticks,” as barn aficionados refer to them) was carefully numbered and preserved. Neilson-Levin later researched the provenance of the wood, and it was indeed linked to Thoreau. The problem was that the lumber would build only onethird of the barn Tittmann was proposing. So, with the help of the Tittmanns and Babcock, Neilson-Levin and her mother set off on a barn-hunting trip. They mapped out properties in Massachusetts with old barns that were in need of rescuing, eventually finding two more that they could dismantle and add to their stick collection. After the foundation of the house was laid and the floor deck placed on top, Babcock and his crew loaded the lumber from all three barns onto a barge and brought it to the island. Then Babcock, along with the other neighbors and locals on the island, held an old-fashioned barn raising, building one new barn assembled from the three dismantled ones. Because old barns such as these were put together with pegged mortise-and-tenon joints, the entire process

took around five days. The builder and caretaker of the house, Michael Westphal, helped during the raising. Westphal has built many homes on the island, including Neilson-Levin’s parents’ and most of her siblings’ houses. “At one point Babcock and his crew were putting the finishing touches on the barn when the rafters all came down,” remembers Westphal. “It was definitely a little scary.” Once the new barn was raised, construction began around it. Tittmann brought in project architect Craig Gibson, and the house was completed in 2002. When a visitor drives up to the finished house, there’s an element of surprise. From the outside, the home looks like a newly constructed cottage shingled in red cedar. The barn is the hub and serves as the primary living space. Inside, the exposed wood and beams imbue the space with an immediate coziness. Neilson-Levin always intended for the living room to have floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. A ladder built from extra lumber allows access to even the highest books. Two built-in benches for reading provide sight lines to the entry, to allow the reader to see visitors approaching. Neilson-Levin also wanted a bit of quirkiness, which resulted in stained-glass windows and glass cabinets that glimmer at intervals along the fireplace wall like found treasures. These cabinets are filled with curiosities that include the children’s old toys, ferry schedules, and natural finds from

The last bay in the three-bay porch on the back of the house (above) has a windscreen and outdoor fireplace, which allows the family to still enjoy the outside area on cooler nights. Glass floats selected by one of Neilson-Levin’s friends hang from the ceiling of the barn’s dining area (opposite).

adventures on the island. The kitchen is built off the barn in the shape of a horseshoe. It has windows on all three sides to take advantage of the natural light. “There’s a lot of glass on the island, and we have always collected sea glass with the kids,” says Neilson-Levin. “I told Johnny that I loved the idea of having an area where the sun could shine through the colored glass.” Tittmann’s solution was to construct long shelves to display Neilson-Levin’s collection. Part of what makes the project unique is that the architect, builder, and interior designer—Leandra Fremont-Smith of Leandra Fremont-Smith Interiors in Yarmouth—all have connections to Mount Desert and its surrounding islands. Fremont-Smith’s family has vacationed on Mount Desert for five generations. Neilson-Levin found Fremont-Smith by word of mouth. “Emmy’s family immerses themselves in the island’s local culture and appreciates the unique place where they spend their summers,” Fremont-Smith says, noting that, when she would visit the jobsite in the morning, she would often see Neilson-Levin’s father at the island’s general store having coffee with other regulars. After the house was built, Neilson-Levin filled it with well-loved antiques from her grandparents’ home, and she supplemented family pieces with yard-sale finds. “When you have young children the thought of having nice furniture or items in your house seems silly,” says

Neilson-Levin. (At one point, there was even a rope swing in the middle of the barn.) It wasn’t until 13 years later, after Neilson-Levin’s children were older, that she decided that it was time to really organize the barn space and outside sitting area. Fremont-Smith and Neilson-Levin didn’t meet face-to-face until 2015, a year after the renovation had started. There was a lot of brainstorming over the phone. “We wanted to maintain that summer cottage feel, with a sophisticated flair that would evolve with the family,” says Fremont-Smith. One of the most important things to Neilson-Levin was to lighten up the barn and create a defined space. “The original floor and green trim was dark and absorbed all the light,” recalls Fremont-Smith. “To brighten the space, we painted the floor and trim in a shade of linen white.” It was important that Fremont-Smith be refined in her selection because she had to send design schemes to Seattle for Neilson-Levin to review. In the end, NeilsonLevin and Fremont-Smith chose Cowtan and Tout’s Caramoor fabric, which has a playful floral and animal motif, as their main inspiration. The designer broke up the expanse of the barn with furniture groupings arranged into several distinct spaces. Where before there was just a dining and living room, there is now a separate seating area for entertaining in the dining room, allowing guests to easily flow from cocktails to the dinner table. After dinner, they can either sit by the MAINEHOMEDESIGN.COM 85

fire in the living room, do a puzzle, or go outside to cook s’mores. The porch has an outside fireplace for chilly summer nights, but it wasn’t until Fremont-Smith was brought in that an outside dining area was established. “Tittmann had created wonderful outdoor spaces with impeccable architectural details, just begging to be used in multiple ways,” says Fremont-Smith. Classic wicker furniture from Janus et Cie was selected and paired with hand-blocked textiles. One of the design challenges was getting everything to the house; Great Cranberry is an island off an island, after all. Every measurement had to be exact because there would be no going back over the winter. FremontSmith had pieces sent to her office in Yarmouth, and from there had a moving truck deliver the items to a rented barge. Recently, Neilson-Levin asked each of her children when it was that they really felt one with nature. “They all said, ‘Maine!’” she says. “We live in a suburb of Seattle, and on Great Cranberry my kids can really be free,” says Neilson-Levin. Today the “kids” are all in their early 20s, but they still relish their time there during the summer. “It’s a tradition for them to sneak down to the basement and graffiti their initials every summer,” NeilsonLevin says. Summers past were filled with riding bicycles down to their cousins’ houses, playing on the rocks, swimming, and creating fairy houses in the woods surrounding the property. “They all learned to ride a two-wheeler here,” says NeilsonLevin. Now, when they gather every summer, the family has weekly meetings to discuss cooking plans and what they will do together that week. Meals are spent at each other’s houses, and everyone makes something, and nights are spent sitting around the fire and telling stories. “The island really is the perfect place for our family,” says Neilson-Levin. MH+D

With Fremont-Smith’s addition of outdoor dining furniture (above, left), meals are now spent outside whenever possible. This reading nook in the barn (above, right) has Tetris-like shelving. The outdoor throw pillows (opposite, top) were made in Maine. “I incorporated the stones and boulders that were part of the land and inherent to the island in the walls of the house” (opposite, bottom), says architect John B. Tittmann.

The living area of this Saint George peninsula home, designed and built by Phi Builders and Architects, faces west so that the homeowners can watch the sun set out its expansive windows. A corner window seat hides a low-frequency subwoofer installed by Tucker and Tucker. Daniel Bittner of Keystone Masonry hand-selected the fieldstones for the fireplace surround. “When the stones were delivered, they were covered in moss and lichen,” explains the husband. “The mason asked us, ‘Do you want the natural look, or do you want me to clean them up?’”

E

ver since the kids were small, this family of four would set off every summer for two weeks of sailing. Eight hours after departing by boat from Cape Elizabeth, they would arrive at their first stop: Tenants Harbor. Two decades later, when the children were finishing up college and the father was retiring from his job as a commercial pilot, he and his wife found themselves back on the Saint George peninsula. There, they began searching for a spot to build a home where they could age in place, and from which they could sail. Eventually the couple came across a picturesque, western-facing property, which would provide protected deep-water access for their Sabre 386 sailboat as well as views out to a pristine island land trust. The only hitch was that it consisted mostly of ledge, which had proved so difficult to build on that the previous landowners eventually put it up for sale. Fortunately, Rockport’s Phi Builders and Architects, whom the homeowners decided to hire because of their flexible, team-based approach, were up for the challenge. “As we started with the site, we walked a lot. We

looked at it. Turned and twisted and pulled and stretched,” says architect Christopher Grotton. He eventually designed a four-bedroom, three-bath house that’s long rather than high, in order to make the home feel less imposing—a risk because of its siting on the raised granite mound. “We integrated the natural features of the site in such a way that you’re living with them and not living on them,” says Rob Troxler, director of construction services. Although mild blasting was required in order to get the foundation in place, the ledge was flattened just enough so that the home now seems neatly nestled into the wild landscape. There is only a small stretch of lawn, which the homeowners were adamant about because they wanted to be sensitive to the surrounding natural environment. While the exterior is shingle style with Greek Revival trim, the inside feels airy and light filled, with views of the water from nearly every room. “It’s definitely a hybrid style,” says Grotton. “It’s got that seaside feel with the shingle style on the outside, but very much an Arts and Crafts aspect to the inside.” A hallmark of Arts and Crafts style is interaction with

“We were able to do a formal, old-fashioned dining room” (above), says the husband, “But the space is not old-fashioned by any means, with the vaulted ceilings.” Cove lighting runs along three sides of the space, which connects to the sunroom. The diamond-shape detail on the back of the sideboard, which is topped with cherry, also appears on the home’s transom windows. Native plantings (opposite) have filled in around the ledge, which initially made building on the site a challenge.

the outdoors, and the faceted, south-facing sunroom, which offers 180-degree views, doesn’t disappoint. While the team had originally tossed around the idea of a screened porch, they ultimately decided against it, as it would have meant blocking off views from the rest of the house. “Now the sunroom really becomes that four-season screened room,” says Grotton. With eight-foot-high windows that stretch nearly to the floor and the space’s slightly sunken feeling (it’s two steps down from the rest of the house due to the way the ledge had previously been blown out), it almost feels like being right outside. Native shrubs such as bunchberry, huckleberry, and blueberry surround it, and “there are little red squirrels that scurry by, which our dog tracks through the window,” says the wife. “We had foxes one year, too.” Besides its strong visual connection to nature, the home’s Arts and Crafts style is perhaps most pronounced in the downstairs powder room, which is off the entry. The bathroom has mahogany wainscoting, a gold-leaf ceiling, and Bradbury and Bradbury’s hand-printed Lands End wallpaper, which

features a row of silhouetted spindly trees, the sun shining from behind them—a scene that could very well be right outside. Additional decorative touches include a shoji screen in the owners’ bath that serves as a space divider and a tori-inspired wood gate on the boat dock. There are also several subtle nature and woodland motifs that run throughout the home, including poppies on the Art Nouveau–style tiles from Distinctive Tile and Design on the dining room sideboard and on the Stickley-inspired carved oak headboard above the reading nook in the upstairs office. (Ingeniously, the decorative pieces attach to the wall with magnets so that they can be easily removed should the homeowners want to paint in the future.) “When I think about Arts and Crafts, I think of each piece as telling a story,” says Troxler. “That’s how the homeowners expressed their whole house. It’s really the culmination of a bunch of pieces put together, and each one of them has their reason and history behind them.” In keeping with that concept, the home has numerous custom design elements that

not only support how the couple live today but also keep their future lifestyle in mind. As the couple’s hope is to age in place, the owners’ suite and laundry is on the first floor; doorways, which often have decorative woodwork, are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair; and the owners’ bathroom is backed with wood boards so that it can be retrofitted with grab bars. Every upstairs room, which includes two bedrooms, an office, a media room, and a full bath, is individually temperature controlled, so that heating can be kept separate from the first floor of the home. In the loft space above the garage, bunks can be added for future grandchildren. “There’s not one square inch of the house that isn’t custom,” says the husband. Because he is a music lover— his record collection measures 16 feet long when lined up together—built-ins in the living room neatly store his entire collection. Nearby, a window seat not only serves as a cozy space to take a nap but also hides a lowfrequency subwoofer installed by Scarborough’s Tucker and Tucker, who had done the audiovisual system in the couple’s previous home. Another personalized element is the layout of the owners’ suite. Because the husband’s career as a commercial pilot had made for odd hours, the bedroom closet is set up as a walk-through space so that he can leave the suite without waking his wife. However, things are different now that he’s fully retired. “For all the traveling that my husband did, since we’ve been here, we really have not been out of Maine much,” says the wife. “It is bizarre,” adds the husband. “I spent my whole life

traveling on airplanes, and since we retired here five years ago, I’ve only been on a plane once, and I’ve only been out of Maine twice.” Instead, the couple find themselves on a much smaller, slower, and markedly serene circuit. “We actually make a tour sometimes through the house, because we love all these different spaces,” says the wife. “We love to go out on the front porch for our coffee, with the hummingbirds flitting by. We love to sit in the sunroom. We love to relax in the living room. We’re moving around the house throughout the day.” After all, now that the couple can sail a boat out of their backyard, watch wildlife stroll past their sunroom, and catch the sunset from their living room window, why would they want to be anywhere else?

SIMPLICITY

& Ease A BEACHSIDE HOME FOR SUMMERTIME GUESTS, RELAXED DAYS, AND CHILDHOOD MEMORIES by Debra Spark // Photography by Jonathan Reece

The Seaver family enjoys a lobster dinner on the ipê deck (opposite) that serves as bridge between their Higgins Beach property’s front and back cottages. (Before the renovation, one had to go down a set of exterior stairs and up another to travel between the two houses.) Although the deck could not be given a roof per local ordinance, Russ Tyson of Whitten Architects still wanted a way to illuminate the space, so he chose to wrap string lights around stainless-steel cables strung at what would be ceiling level. A new porch and entrance (right) stole some of the front cottage’s interior footage but ultimately allowed for a more welcoming, covered entrance. Both the front and back cottages have eastern white cedar shingles and red cedar detailing, such as the vertical panels at the front entry.

F

or years, Jennifer and Jeff Seaver had been thinking, in a casual way, of buying a house at Higgins Beach. Jeff had visited the Scarborough community of tightly packed beachfront cottages since he was a boy. “Every summer,” he says, “it was the destination vacation, a special place for my brothers and me.” When Jeff married, the tradition continued with his own children summering on the coastal stretch popular with year-round surfers, sunbathers, strollers, and those curious about the ship’s ribs visible at low tide, evidence of an 1897 wreck. Although the number of weeks the Seavers spent in Maine had increased over the years, they had always been renters. Then, in 2011 the family moved from Chicago to London for Jeff’s work with an asset management company. The longtime desire for a Higgins Beach cottage dovetailed with the couple’s wish to have a base in the States. “This could be great,” Jeff said to Jennifer. “We could come back from London and still have a place for family and friends to connect.” The property the Seavers found was curious: two small cottages on a 50by 100-foot lot with ocean views. An early postcard of the original summer cottages, which were named “Life Saver” and “Ship Ahoy,” shows two single-story homes with white clapboard siding and black asphalt roofs whose front doors faced the ocean. The president of the

The kitchen’s backsplash tiles from Old Port Specialty Tile determined the color of the rest of the room, which (aside from a powder room) consists of the whole of the front cottage’s downstairs. A slight drop in the kitchen ceiling, as well as a step down from the kitchen to the living area, allows the room to be visually delineated. Custom cabinetry (here and elsewhere in the house) was done by Greg Soper Woodworking. The drawers to the right of the refrigerator are actually a faux front for a pull-out pantry.

MHD Layout July.indd 113

The best views to the ocean were on the corner of the front cottage, so where there were once standardsize windows, R.P. Morrison Builders installed floor-to-ceiling windows. The chandelier creates visual interest without blocking the view. The table and chairs are from the Seavers’ previous home. The Seavers worked with Ilyse Sandler and Louise Hurlbutt of Hurlbutt Designs to choose the other furnishings, decorative items, linens, and pillows throughout the house. The front cottage with the tower is connected to the back cottage with a shed roof (opposite) via a deck bridge. Plantings include grasses and native shrubs such as bayberry and beach plum. Both houses are built on concrete piers. In the event of a flood, slats would allow water to flow underneath.

MHD Layout July.indd 114

5/30/17 3:20 PM


Scarborough Historical Society, Rodney Laughton, who knows the Higgins Beach community well, says the cottages were summer rental properties, surplus buildings (likely from the South Portland shipyard area) that were moved to Higgins Beach after World War II, when they were no longer needed to house wartime laborers. By the time the Seavers bought the property, the houses had been reoriented to a street that runs perpendicular to the ocean. The front cottage was two stories and recently renovated, while the back cottage was one story and in need of significant repair. Architect Russ Tyson of Whitten Architects in Portland and builder Josh Morrison of R.P. Morrison Builders in Windham faced a challenge: zoning, frontal dune, and floodplain regulations make renovating on Higgins Beach complicated. On certain lots, the footprint of an existing house cannot be changed, and there is little wiggle room for altering the volume. The Seavers wanted to fit a great deal into the limited space, in no small part because they hoped to host frequent guests. “It felt like we were building a ship,” says Jennifer. “Every inch needed to be thought about.” Another difficulty: the building was going to take place over the course of the (cold and snowy) winter of 2014/2015 and the Seavers would be able to visit the site only once during construction. “That made us a little nervous,” says Tyson. “We like to have the homeowner included in the process as much as possible.” The front cottage was originally divided into several small rooms. The new design opened the ground floor into a “great room” with an adjacent powder room. It also dropped the living and dining room floor six inches to improve the views and make the ceilings higher. (Previously, one had to “scrunch down,” as Morrison

puts it, to best see outdoors.) Two bedrooms on the second floor were joined into a single owners’ suite. The attic space was combined with a modest allowable expansion to create a third-floor tower with two built-in beds under the sloping eaves. (The Higgins Beach zoning quirk that allows for small additions on upper stories seems to account for the occasional rooftop curiosity in the neighborhood.) Meanwhile, the back cottage was entirely razed and rebuilt with cubbies in the entryway, a sitting area and kitchenette, three small bedrooms, and a shared bath. A ladder leads from the sitting area to a lowceilinged loft with beanbag chairs and more cubbies. The children call the space, tucked underneath a shed dormer with a row of clerestory windows, “the lobster fortress.” A western red cedar outdoor shower with a slate floor serves not only to rinse off beach sand but also as a second bath for the back cottage. To meet code requirements, the back cottage needed to be rebuilt on concrete piers, which Morrison then hid with western red cedar slats at the base of the structure. Flood waters, should they come, will now wash under the house, rather than sweep the house away. The new concrete piers raised the back house up to the level of the front house—which had been lifted in an earlier renovation—and thus became part of an overall effort to integrate the two cottages, visually and practically. A deck that serves as the outdoor dining room bridges the two buildings, which are also united by palette, materials, and design. Inside, interior designer Ilyse Sandler of Hurlbutt Designs in Kennebunk decorated with blue and white, a palette that Jennifer loves. The kitchen backsplash tiles are powder blue, the upstairs bedroom chairs are navy MAINEHOMEDESIGN.COM 115

Every inch of the home is used for something, as is evident in the third-floor landing (above). Once an attic space, this level now has a bathroom and two built-in beds, one with storage below and the other with a trundle bed. The lamp and side table in the owners’ suite (opposite) are from a previous house. The other items are from Hurlbutt Designs. The nickel-gap paneling on the back wall was used liberally in the front cottage and more sparingly in the back cottage.

with aqua piping, the living room rug is sisal with a navy border, and so on. The materials are classic—white oak for the floors in the front house, painted yellow pine for the floors in the back house, white nickel-gap paneling for many of the walls, and Maine granite for the kitchen island and fireplace surround. Outside, shades of warm gray compose the palette, which is largely determined by the materials: white-cedar shingles, red-cedar detailing, ipê decking, concrete driveway pavers, red-cedar walkways (which feel particularly good underfoot), and standing-seam metal roofs. Native plantings include grasses, small trees, and shrubs such as bayberry and blueberry. While offering some screening for the property, the greenery is also designed to grow around the connecting bridge, so the deck will come to appear, in Jeff’s words, like it is “floating” between the two cottages. Originally, the front cottage’s windows and its single balcony did not take advantage of the views. Now a balcony over a new entryway and off the owners’ bedroom looks directly onto the water, and windows have been resized and relocated. A corner of the ground floor always had windows, but the new

The living area mural (above) is by Susan Amons and hides a television while depicting what would be seen out the window, if there were a window above the fireplace. The Seavers wanted child-friendly, easy-to-care-for furnishings. The couches are slipcovered, and the indoor/outdoor rug with a navy border can be hosed off. “We also wanted to add some natural elements,” says Sandler. “So we chose a reclaimed wood coffee table and throw pillows with jute fringe.” The owners’ bedroom (opposite, top) has a pair of Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams chairs and woven roll-up shades. Above the back cottage’s cubbies (opposite, bottom) is a ladder to the loft. A small kitchenette is in the background, and to the right are three guest bedrooms. “We used a lot of blue and white, as well as subtle nautical hints, such as an antique ship’s wheel, rope mirror, and small seashell mirror,” says Sandler.

ones are door-size, further opening the views. In order not to block sight lines with lighting, Sandler used glass pendants over the kitchen island and a nautically inspired ironand-rope chandelier over the dining room table. “The moment I knew we made all the right decisions—the moment that crystallized it—was when the kids arrived at Higgins Beach the first summer after London,” says Jeff. “They were so happy, they were crying. It meant so much to them, to know that they were home.” Since their pair of houses was renovated, Jeff and Jennifer have moved from London to Dallas and are now headed for Pasadena, California. “We wanted to create a sense of permanency for the children,” says Jennifer of the Higgins Beach house. But it’s more than stability that the Seavers are after. Their landscape designer, Emma Kelly of Buxton, perhaps put it best when she described what she felt the Seavers were asking her to do with the grounds: “They wanted to create a landscape that would complement a muscle memory of childhood, that natural living, that rolling out of bed and going to the beach, that simplicity and ease.” A nostalgic idea, and yet one that appears to be in the Seaver family’s past and future.

AMERICAN GENRE: CONTEMPORARY PAINTING ON VIEW JULY 20 - SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

The ICA at MECA is pleased to bring American Genre: Contemporary Painting to Portland, Maine this summer.

Curated by artist, writer, and curator Michelle Grabner, who is the Crown Family Professor of Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, this exhibition is built on a triad of traditional painting genres, including still life, landscape, and portraiture. Fifty paintings by fifty American artists offer a critical balance to the conditions of atemporality, affected responses, and the material turn currently shaping much of contemporary painting discourse. Dana DeGiulio, Citizens, 2015, Oil on canvas, 25×19 in

The exhibit opens with a public reception from 5-8pm on July 20 and closes with a one-day symposium with a panel discussion moderated by Barry Schwabsky on September 15, 2017.

SOLID GROUND Portland’s Paul G. White Interior Solutions provides durable and long-lasting surfaces, from oiled hardwood to stunning natural stone, for Maine homes, schools, and even the Capitol

1 1. Paul C. White, the second-generation co-owner of Paul G. White Interior Solutions, stands in front of a titanium black granite slab at the Riverside Industrial Parkway stone-cutting facility in Portland.

ou may not know it, but you’ve likely seen the work of Paul G. White Interior Solutions. If you’ve ever shopped at the Maine Mall or attended class at Portland High School or admired the quirky tumbling letters that adorn the carpet of the Press Hotel (where the decor nods to the building’s previous tenant, the Portland Press Herald), you have likely stepped on floors installed by the Portlandbased business. You may even live with the company’s handiwork in your bathroom: many of the condo complexes and apartment buildings in the greater Portland area showcase the business’s tiles, carpeting, natural stone countertops, and hardwood wares. Founded in 1970 by Paul G. White as a ceramic contracting company, over the years the business has expanded, bringing in a dizzying variety of surfaces. You can find textured soapstone for your farmhouse kitchen, colorful mosaic tiles for your beach cottage bathroom, and sleek porcelain for your contemporary mudroom. They offer everything from ceramic tile to hardwood, from durable vinyl flooring to eco-friendly bamboo. Through the business, Paul C. White, the chief executive officer and the company’s second-generation co-owner, his brother, Jonathan White, and their crew have been granted access to some pretty amazing places. “Construction is a very dynamic field, and it allows us to see snapshots of so many different places—and so many beautiful homes,” says White. He took particular pleasure in working on the floors of the State Capitol in Augusta. “It was a renovation, and while the materials were brought in from out of state, my guys felt so

much pride to be a small part of such an important place,” he says. “Flooring is critical to how any space functions, even though people don’t always think about it,” White notes, explaining that it’s tied directly to the safety of a structure. Slippery surfaces, such as polished ceramic tiles, can spell disaster for an older couple or a young child. Flooring also sets the tone for the rest of a space. Solid pine floors immediately call to mind a certain kind of decor (rustic or contemporary), while wallto-wall carpeting in a family room make it clear that this space is used for playful purposes. While some may enter a spacious living room and admire the windows, White says he is “always looking down.” He has an eye to the floor, and he gathers cues from the choices made by business owners and homeowners about how they want their space to be used. However, he admits that most people tend to be drawn into a space by items at eye level, including countertops. “I will always love natural stone countertops,” he says. “Whether it is quartzite, marble, or soapstone, it’s the focal point in any kitchen or bathroom. Everybody’s eyes are drawn to the countertops, and then their gaze flows around the room from there.”

White has been thinking a lot about stone lately: the company just upgraded the equipment in their stone shop with digitized machines that, thanks to tablets and cellphones, can begin cutting slabs of stone to size before the contractor even leaves the jobsite. “Everything is digital, which means customers can choose the exact layout of every piece of marble,” he explains. “If you want to highlight a specific feature of a piece of stone—like a vein or a colorful stripe of quartz—we can show you on the computer exactly what that will look like.” Site measuring has also gone digital, as have stone-cutting equipment and parts of the installation process. The technology has been a boon to both White and his employees. Not only is the new equipment safer, it also allows White to upgrade the skill set of his staff, expand his company’s output, and ultimately hire more workers. “Instead of technology causing layoffs, it has enabled us to expand,” he says. “It’s a win–win for everyone.” It’s a seemingly small thing that causes big shifts in perception—kind of like the flooring we walk on, day in and day out.

HOW TO FIND YOUR IDEAL FLOOR : If you want to be on the cutting edge, one upcoming trend that White has noticed gaining steam is largeformat tiles. “Big is in,” he says. “Sizes like 18 by 36 inches and 24 by 48 inches are becoming more and more popular.” These large tiles can be used in contemporary looks. With a darker grout, you can play up the geometric nature of the tiles, for a durable, low-maintenance floor that works in a kitchen, hallway, or family room.

u

For a family with pets, sales associate Eliot Hull recommends woodlook porcelain tile. “It gives a nice, warm look with superior durability,” she says. “It’s also perfect for adding radiant heat.”

u

For a natural and modern look, consider oiled wood planks. Unlike urethane-based finishes, which tend to rest on top of the surface of the wood, the oil finish permeates deep into the grain, which enhances natural variations in color (while avoiding a shellacked, plastic look). “Oiled finishes are very popular due to the softer, less shiny, natural look they provide,” says Hull. “They are easy to maintain and have improved durability with the UV-cured oil finishes.”

For eco-conscious customers, “one of the best new products on the market is the Coretec Plus luxury vinyl plank and tile,” says Hull. “It’s a vinyl product, but it is Greenguard Gold certified for indoor air quality.” For a nonvinyl choice, she recommends Lauzon hardwood. “It is an airpurifying smart floor—it’s like having living trees in your home.”

ART SPOTLIGHT EDITED BY BRITTANY COST

O N E S T O WAT C H Five standout artists to keep your eye on

DAVID MOSER

Caribbean Nice, 2016, bronze, 26” x 10” x 10” “For as long as I can remember, I’ve made things. Growing up in the workshop I had apprentice chores, but after they were done I would cobble together toys and, when I was older, furniture. As my talent and focus developed, I sought to apply myself toward the more abstract—objects that were less structured and more intuitive. My approach to design is from a sculptor’s eye. Over a lifetime of building, I have become conditioned to detail, humbled by material, and driven to control it in such a way as to manifest my imagination. Largely, I work in wood, clay, stone, and bronze. I find that, like most people,

I have an innate connection to these noble materials. The direct mind-to-hand manipulation and tactile satisfaction pacifies me in ways steel, glass, and other composites simply cannot satiate. Indeed, humans have had a shared relationship with these materials longer than any others, and they have formed our experience of the world. Mastering them connects us through the ages. I did not choose to become a sculptor so much as it chose me.”

ART SPOTLIGHT

HOLLY LOMBARDO Distant Hues, 2017, acrylic on canvas, 24” x 24”

“When I am in the woods or near the ocean, I not only hear the sounds and smell the air, but I see colors. Growing up in Brunswick, I always noticed the colors in nature: the greens and grays in the rocks and ocean, the dappled sunlight on the trunks of the great pines, and the blues and purples in the shadows of the snow. This color palette continues to inspire my work. With each brushstroke I capture light and movement between colors, and I let my eyes dance over the canvas as I record nature’s artwork in my own way. Because I am self-taught, I have no constraints, and I paint with a freedom of expression and curiosity about the colors I mix. When I look out the window during any season, I not only appreciate the majestic colors that Mother Nature has chosen for that day, but I am also thinking about which colors to mix on my own palette to best capture the day’s mood. I am driven by this freedom to express light and color, as I eagerly await the outcome of every new canvas that I unwrap.”

ALLEN BUNKER

Touch Me like You Do, 2015, oil on canvas, 36” x 36” “If art represents life, then what is life? Life is complex yet simple. Life consists of simple days, waking up, pursuing short activities as well as some interesting ones, and then going to bed and doing them all over again the next day. In time, these simple activities build a life full of complexities. For me painting is the same. If the art is completely imagined in the mind, but there is no physical body to put paint to canvas, there is no painting. It’s the same with life. It needs a creator or life cannot exist. Books could be written about that one point alone, and yet it’s so simple. “I want my work to fully express the complexities of life and yet accomplish this so simply that many people will just push my paintings aside. I want my collectors to struggle with it, to ask, ‘Did he really mean it to be that simple?’ But at the same time they won’t be able to stop looking at it.”

MHD Layout July.indd 134

5/30/17 3:21 PM


GINNY LANE

Quietside Marsh, 2016, oil on canvas, 24” x 36” “My passion for painting the Maine coast began during my summers growing up in Seal Cove on Mount Desert Island. My style is expressionistic and impressionistic, and vivid, loose brushstrokes give my paintings a whimsical feel. I create mood, energy, and light best when I am painting outside, en plein air, because I am forced to paint quickly. In the summer, I paint almost daily. Mostly self-taught, I have also taken numerous workshops to improve my skills and technique. Now I share my knowledge and expertise by teaching classes and workshops both in Maine and in Marietta, Georgia.”

SHAUN MACDAVID Place for Maisie, 2012, oil on canvas, 20” x 32”

“My recent body of work could be best described as abstracted landscape. It draws heavily on the colors, forms, and rhythms found in nature. My work invokes the spirit of a place, conveying its memory and the impressions that form over time. I am not looking to copy nature, but rather to copy the feeling of nature. I often begin by making small pastel sketches and use these as a starting point. Once I move on to the canvas, emotion is expressed through the loose application of the oil paint. In some areas, paint is layered, while in other areas, raw canvas shows through. Places become more than places as they are filled with people, beings, and the memories of what they represent. “I often choose to paint these abstracted landscapes on two panels that rest side by side. I prefer to work on the floor, as I can apply the paint from above and eliminate excessive drips. I have the freedom to move around the panels as the painting progresses, producing results that are fresh and unexpected. The paintings never appear to be overworked. Rather they are rediscovered as the panels settle into the composition that expresses my intention.” MH+D For more information, see Resources on page 152.

MARSDEN HARTLEY’S MAINE Colby College Museum of Art’s exhibition sheds light on the artist’s continuous and complex relationship with his homeland BY BRITTANY COST

City Point, Vinalhaven, 1937–38, oil on commercially prepared paperboard (academy board), 18 ¼” x 24 ⅛”; Colby College Museum of Art, gift of the Alex Katz Foundation

IN

conjunction with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville is co-organizing an exhibition of works by famed modernist Marsden Hartley. Born in Lewiston in 1877, Hartley played a role in the European avant-garde movement of the early twentieth century, spending extended periods of time in Paris and Berlin. Throughout his career, however, he returned to depicting scenes inspired by Maine, where he began his career in the early 1900s and died in 1943. Occasionally painted abroad with a nostalgic gaze toward home, his paintings examine the state’s folk culture as well as its pastoral landscapes, rough-hewn mountains, and rocky coastlines. Although his relationship with Maine was often fraught—as the brutal loneliness of many of his works attests—his connection to the state defined Hartley’s career from its beginning to its end. “Like many of us, he had an ambivalent relationship to the place he was from,” says co-curator Elizabeth Finch. “In

certain paintings there’s this exuberance as well as a sense of absolute loss. These are two sides of his relationship with Maine.” To enrich viewers’ understanding of Hartley’s works, the painter Alex Katz is curating Visionary Painting, an exhibition running through August 27 that features postwar and contemporary artists whom Hartley inspired, including Bob Thompson, Jan Muller, Lois Dodd, Chantal Joffe, Bernard Langlais, and Etel Adnan. It also contains works by William Matthew Prior, a folk artist who influenced Hartley. “Hartley is often best known for a group of paintings he made in Germany,” Finch adds. “But we want to demonstrate the significance of Maine throughout his career.” Marsden Hartley’s Maine is on view at Colby College through November 12. On the following pages, Maine Home+Design presents works from the exhibition. MH+D

VIEW FINDER

ooking to retire in coastal Maine, a Massachusetts couple hired Kennebunk River Architects to design a home for the lot they selected at Tidewater Landing in Wells, which offers dramatic views of the harbor and the ocean beyond. The clients wanted open green spaces as well as footpaths to lead to the abutting tidal marsh. The property presented many challenges, including low height limitations, lot coverage requirements, a narrow size, and a significant slope. However, the biggest design challenge was providing property access while maintaining the desired sight lines, as the approach shares the same side as the view. The solution was to incorporate a two-car garage under the main living spaces. Elevating the interior and exterior living spaces affords much

better views than would have been available at ground level. A three-sided wraparound porch leads directly to the main-level great room, and the open kitchen, first-floor ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suite, and two second-floor guest rooms all have ocean views. The clients desired a cottage-style home, so the upper levels are contained within the roofline under flanking shed dormers, below which lies the wraparound porchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low, sloping roof. Whitecedar shingles, playful window combinations, and a stone-veneer-clad chimney enhance the cottage look. Southeast solar orientation toward the view allows natural light to filter in throughout the day. Energy-efficient features, including spray-foam insulation, windows, mechanical systems, and fixtures, have been proposed. MH+D

s I sit here on a gloomy April day dreaming of sunshine and blue skies, many talented and dedicated people are feverishly preparing Sandy Pines Campground for its opening night, and its first summer season. This crew has transformed and preserved this special land, and shaped a place not only for generations to come, but for generations to come together. A place to unplug from daily lives, and spend time in our beautiful Maine outdoors, relaxing and reconnecting with nature. In the Kennebunkport Resort Collection tradition, we open with a Designer Showcase and a gala, which will benefit Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library, Community Harvest, Southern Maine Health Care Auxiliary, and Kennebunkport Conservation Trustâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;four of our favorite organizations working locally to improve our lives. I have many people to thank for their contribution to the creation of Sandy Pines, but it truly could not have happened without the tireless commitment of managing director Deb Lennon and project manager, my brother, Kevin Harrington. Their tenacious dedication to this project set the momentum from start to finish. I am thrilled to welcome each of you to Summer Camp at Sandy Pines Preview Gala and Designer Tent Showcase! We are so lucky to live in a community surrounded by so many talented and creative people, and I am so excited to provide this venue to share their incredible work with you. Looking forward to seeing you all this week at Sandy Pines and hope that you will come join us for a glamping adventure of your own. Signing off as a very happy camper, Tim Harrington

here are things that touch our hearts, that bind us to the land, and which develop within us a sense of place. They are things like the sight of the lobster boats resting comfortably on their moorings as they swing in line with the incoming tide, the sound of the wind rustling the branches of the surrounding forest, the scent of pine or the soft aroma of the sea. They are sensory connections that often remind us of our past, just as they connect us to all those who came before us, and shared with similar appreciation the wonders of this place. In his childhood, Tim Harrington came to Kennebunkport with his family. They would camp out under the stars, warm themselves near a blazing fire, and fall asleep to these same sounds and smells, awaking in the morning to rush off and see what new sights were to be found and explored. Recently, Tim became the proud owner of Sandy Pines Campground near Goose Rocks Beach. His goal is to pass on that sense of wonder and appreciation to a new generation of Kennebunkport visitors, hoping that they too will be captivated by the magic of this place. He and his devoted team started planning a designer showcase and gala to show off the property. He asked if the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust would be interested in participating. He wanted our efforts towards protecting the local landscape to benefit from the event, and saw the trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the community as allowing and promoting the types of family-oriented outdoor activities which he supports. We gratefully accepted. We thank you for your participation. Through your support of this event and the organizations involved, the stars are the limit for the good we can all pass on to this community. May your time here be filled with enjoyment, inspiration, and creative ideas that stimulate your senses. Sincerely, Tom Bradbury Executive Director Kennebunkport Conservation Trust

ver a century ago, a passionate group of women in York County stepped forward to make a difference for their local hospital: together, they formed the Auxiliary, and promised to make an impact on the lives of patients in their community through fundraising, advocacy, and volunteerism. Tens of thousands of hours, and generations of volunteers later, the impact of this enthusiastic group is seen daily in the health and healthcare of the people of York County. Businesspeople, caregivers, fundraisers, event planners, philanthropists—many hundreds of women and men with myriad strengths, interests, and passions have joined together over the past hundred years with the shared mission to give back to their community hospital. Known today as Southern Maine Health Care (SMHC), this healthcare system is among the largest in Maine, and serves the fastest growing region in the state. As partners, the Auxiliary’s efforts focus on the highest priority needs of the patients at SMHC. Every dollar raised by the Auxiliary enhances patient care—whether the Auxiliary purchases swaddle blankets for newborn children in the birthing suite; funds new, lifesaving equipment in the Dorothy Walker Bush Emergency Care Pavilion; or supports social services and programs that help cancer patients, regardless of ability to pay, access the healthcare they deserve without financial barrier. On behalf of the many patients whose lives will be touched by this event, the Auxiliary Board and I thank you for investing in the health and healthcare of our community.

hen Tim Harrington and Deb Lennon first shared with me their vision for the Sandy Pines Campground, we started reminiscing about our favorite summer vacations as kids. Tim talked about his family grabbing sleeping bags, packing the car, and heading north to explore the beauty of Maine—the beaches, the trails, the people. It’s clear he and Deb had this in mind in the design of Sandy Pines. For me, camping brings back wonderful memories of family and friends coming together not just to enjoy the outdoors, but to step back and spend time together as a group. Everyone pitched in, shared meals, and worked together to create a memorable experience. This is, in part, what we do every day at Community Harvest—we bring people together. Community Harvest is a grassroots nonprofit organization that is about three things: food sharing, fellowship, and financial assistance. At Community Harvest, we know the value of a shared meal, whether it’s at our Project Pilgrim Thanksgiving Dinner, our Christmas Day Noel Dinner, or one of our monthly Harvest Cafe Dinners. It’s not just about the food, but the meaningful connections people make when they enjoy a meal together. We also know that many in our community need more than a shared meal. They need a helping hand when times are toughest. That’s why we are committed to providing financial support to people in Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Arundel facing emergency situations. Tim and Deb have been loyal supporters of Community Harvest. We are honored they have chosen us to be a beneficiary of this event. Whether you want to glamp, camp, or just take a tour, you will support Community Harvest and three other local nonprofits. Thank you! Kerry de Bree Executive Director Community Harvest

T

he red brick building located at 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, was constructed in 1813 to house the Kennebunk Bank of Arundel. Until 1831, this building was jointly owned by the bank and the U.S. government. While the bank employees guarded money and treasures in the first-floor concrete encased vault, which is still there, a U.S. Custom House clerk collected impressive duties for goods such as rum, spices, and molasses on the second floor. As time went on, the bank folded and the Customs District moved to the booming seaport of Portland. What would become of the red brick building? Enter Abbott. F. Graves. In 1891, Graves brought his young family to Kennebunkport after hearing about the Maine coast from one of his Boston art students. So what is the connection between this red brick building and artist Abbott Graves? The Kennebunkport Library Association had just formed and was renting space from the U.S. government on the second floor. Guided by their civic and philanthropic natures, Graves, and his wife, Montie, purchased the entire building and gifted it to the Library Association in memory of their son, Louis Talbott, who died from influenza after WWI. One hundred years later, the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library remains a vital part of the community due to their endearing act. Since opening in 1913, numerous technological and physical limitations have challenged the Library Association. Now we are engaged in an exciting new project: an addition that will enable us to meet the challenges of this new century. In 2016, after careful research and planning, the Library Association embarked on a project to raze the annex building due to environmental damages and add a new wing to the existing 18 Maine Street property. This additional square footageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which includes an elevator, bathrooms, a business center, book sale and research/archive area, and a community room for civic and social groups to meet, watch a movie, or listen to a best-selling authorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as well as the improvement of infrastructure that presently does not conform to current building codes, allows the library to maximize its several hundred programs for all patrons. We are indebted to hundreds of people that are currently supporting this project and thank you for your participation. Because of your generosity, all residents and visitors to the area will enjoy the vital and dynamic resources offered by the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library for the next one hundred years.

SEAGRASS

D

esigner Annie Stickney spent her childhood summers in Kennebunk riding bikes to get penny candy and looking for crabs at Mother’s Beach. She began to pay attention to the play of light on the sand and rocks, the way the fog came in, the smell of beach roses. For her the name Seagrass encapsulates these images and the carefree style of her grandmother’s home. Painted floors, straw rugs, brightly colored furniture covered in happy prints created a relaxed summer vibe, but with careful attention to what mattered: good food, a full bar, places to read or play cards, and spaces arranged for friends to visit comfortably. In Seagrass you’ll feel the influence of Annie’s childhood summers—a comfortable bed, good lighting for reading, a place to do a puzzle in progress. The tent’s colors mimic those of the surroundings: tans and driftwood, blues of all shades, and the orange-pinks of dawn and dusk. Just look at the painted floor for clues. It’s all right there.

NAUTICAL NIGHTS

N

autical flags outline the entrance of designer Debbie Chatfield’s tent design. Draped from boat rope, the bright, primary-colored flags stylishly announce the maritime theme. The Rockport designer’s inspiration was drawn from the proximity of Sandy Pines Campground to Goose Rocks Beach as well as the enduring style of the yacht clubs that dot the Maine coastline. Inside, a striking Currey and Co. oyster shell chandelier continues to set the stage. For the color palette, she leaned toward seaside colors, the blues of the water and sky and the yellows of the sand and sun for the fabrics and paint. A hand-painted headboard that depicts the coastline of Maine from an early 1685 map and a rug decorated with several notable yacht club burgees in the area add color and drama amid furniture painted in high-gloss turquoise reminiscent of a boat hull.

MODERN EARTH

J

an Robinson finds her muse in nature: “Our world is filled with so many wonderful things that bring us close to our very existence,” she says. She believes that incorporating nature’s art forms into interior spaces helps to ground us to our true selves. In that spirit, her tent design showcases many products that are ecofriendly. A headboard made from a live-edge slab of reclaimed pine is a remarkable, made-in-Maine heirloom furnishing. A piece of moss art made by Robinson hangs over the bed. Other elements of the space include eco-friendly fabrics and pieces inspired by nature that are influenced by modern design, which is right in line with her philosophy at EcoHome by Jan Robinson. Jan shares, “We believe that it is vital for the health of our planet to use design elements that incorporate less toxins and have the least amount of negative impact on our environment, both inside and outside our homes.” And where better to reflect this spirit than in a place where one is so close to the earth?

BASE CAMP

W

hen it came time to conceive of her tent design, Krista Stokes drew upon her childhood memories of growing up on army bases around the country, and the recollections of life with her U.S. Army Ranger father, a man whose life’s work was to drop from planes and navigate the outdoors—someone she recalls as having, “a healthy obsession with the show M*A*S*H.” This backdrop helped shape her concept, which she describes as, “rugged, versatile, practical, with the heart of an adventurer.” Her palette includes lots of lush forest greens. Black leather chairs and chrome trunks juxtapose with a vintage four-poster bed made up in dreamy organic linen. An antique bureau stands beneath inventive pieces of art that inspire you to keep wandering. “I wanted the space to be an extension of the outdoors, rather than an escape from it,” she says. She imagined campers weathering a summer storm in style and comfort, and then ready to greet a break of sunshine rested, replenished, and ready to map out a new adventure.

COASTAL COMFORT

U

sing style, function, durability, and comfort as her guiding design principles, Bronwyn Huffard’s tent feels relaxed and carefully considered. “I’ve always been drawn to blue and white stripes, and that love is not fading. The very first thing I spotted for the tent was a big blue and white indoor/outdoor rug for the sitting area. While it is not one of Madeline Weinrib’s designs, it reminds me of her fantastic rugs and textiles,” says Huffard. The next piece of the puzzle was a black iron bed she had recently seen at High Point Market and had kept on a short list of items to use in an upcoming project. She is partial to the combination of blue and black, and the iron bed will fair well in a tent, where exposure to the elements must be considered. She then mixed in a dose of more organic materials like wicker and reclaimed wood. Bold art and a few pops of deep reddish orange create a lively and relaxed style, perfect for glamping in Kennebunkport.

WANDERLUST

W

hen Louise Hurlbutt spotted a vintage black metal bed at an antique market in Georgia she knew immediately that it was the starting point for the design of her tent, Wanderlust. As a child she went to summer camp on Crescent Lake in Maine, where she slept in a tent on a black metal bed sensing the smells and sounds of the woods around her. Many years later she was once again sleeping in a tent on a black metal bed—this time in South Africa at Kruger National Park. “Black metal beds mean camping to me! And this bed brought back great memories of camping in the woods and enjoying nature,” Hurlbutt says. From there she sourced naturallooking products, using leather, wicker, antique wood, birch bark lamps, and a cowhide rug. The natural beige and black palette is accented with robin’s-egg blue. The result is a skillful and sophisticated balance of nature and luxury.

NO BOUNDARIES

A

s a frequent traveler to East Africa, Lisa Teague describes memories of spending nights in beautifully designed tents where she was always reluctant to close the tent regardless of the weather, and chose instead to leave it open to views of the vast landscape. She drew from these experiences to develop a coastal version of this designâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a space that is intended to give one the feeling that there are no boundaries between the interior of the tent and what is happening outside. The furnishings are purposefully chosen to feel light and cool on a sultry day but layered with texture to warm through a storm. The bed is pushed forward, and a tall headboard creates a private space at the back of the tent with a large mirror, lighting, and a bureau for clothing. On either side rest ladders where clothing and wet swimsuits can hang to dry. A large cloud painting that covers the front of the headboard brings in color and original art, and also reinforces the idea of a space free from restriction and boundaries.

WILDFLOWER RETREAT

N

icki Bongiorno adds fresh, happy, and unexpected elements to her designs. Wildflower Retreat’s graphic palette of black and white accented with pops of colorful floral is inspired by the current lines at the fashion houses of Prada and YSL, and is a nod from Bongiorno to her mother. “My mom had a significant influence on me becoming an interior designer. She also dresses primarily in black and white. I think of this design as a special shout-out to her,” she says. Furniture pieces have a whimsical sophistication and are multifunctional pieces of art. Materials were chosen for their durability and beauty as well as the necessary function. The rattan and bamboo pieces were selected for Bongiorno’s love of retro design and a European seaside aesthetic. The focal point is an ebony limed-oak bed crafted by a local artisan. The 10-footwide by 6½-foot-tall headboard wall is also the backside of an elaborate built-in changing area. The changing area includes a large closet, a vanity, and a seat. Hanging space, shelves, and decorative baskets hold all essentials from outdoor recreational gear to elegant dinner attire, with everything in its place.

PLEIN AIR

J

ames Light wants the campers who visit his tent to escape to something unexpected, and so he created an eclectic midcentury modern nest that would enable a shift from the pace of one’s life at home. “My design is not so much about the furnishings as it is about the experience. The draw is for the curious artist, budding or established, urban or suburban, beginner or professional,” says Light. One will find stacks of paper and canvases, oils and gouache, and pencils and pens in the relaxed setting. Piles of art books, poetry, and prose from notable Maine artists are available for your inspiration. Light has even created a Facebook page—Plein Air—where guests can chat before they arrive, to find out where others have found inspiration, great food, and beautiful walks or keep in touch with new acquaintances. He invites those who visit to leave artwork behind for the next group to add to, enjoy, and leap from—and to share experiences around the splendor we call Maine.

BLIXEN’S OASIS

N

icola Manganello spent much of her adult life working in Maine and raising her daughter for the most part on her own, which did not leave much time for travel. The movie Out of Africa was a regular escape for her to dream of life beyond New England. “My work is inspired by movies and romance. Whose isn’t? It’s always better in the movies!” she says. She is intrigued with movie sets and how a character is revealed through the belongings that surround them. “Sometimes that is why I feel I am hired, to surround my customers with their own set design, of pieces that tell their own stories of a well-traveled life, full of eclectic accessories and antiques collected over time.” And so when the opportunity arose for Manganello to take part in designing a tent, she drew upon the sets of her favorite film for inspiration. “I have always prided my self in creating from my heart. Soulful spaces that envelope the people that grace it, and tempt them undeniably to linger. I need to make time in my life, just once, to go on safari. I have dreamed of it for years.”

everly Bangs wanted her tent design to feel carefree and nurturing to the creative spirit—filled with keepsakes from nomadic wanderings. “My first thoughts were of layers of rugs, Marrakesh, and Arabian Nights, and then progressed to the Bohemian lifestyle of Hemingway’s Paris,” says Bangs. Known for the eclectic offerings in her shop Antiques on Nine, she translates this style in her tent, where she blends old with new, neutrals and colors, and adds in piles of pillows and romantic lighting. The focal point is the bed custom made by Amish craftsmen and covered in sumptuous linens. In sourcing the lighting, Bangs wanted to find something that wowed, and so she settled upon a large, funky, gypsy-inspired chandelier. “I wanted to create a space for the wanderer, the adventurer, the vagabond, the romantic, and the artistic spirit in all of us,” she says. “If the tent could speak, it would say, ‘Oh, the people I’ve met and the places I’ve seen!’”

UNDER THE INDIGO SKY

F

ine art painter and designer Ingunn Milla Joergensen created a simple retreat that is soft and inviting, cool and functional with a feeling of understated luxury. She believes that the patina on natural materials makes them grow more beautiful over time. A pure wool rug lies beneath a bed made in Belgium flax linens in white and heathered gray, the headboard is crafted from reclaimed wood. Two sun-bleached driftwood logs that Joergensen found washed ashore on Kennebunk Beach become bedside tables. Both a bench at the end of the bed and two wicker chairs can be easily moved outside for additional deck seating where two “insanely comfortable” Adirondack chairs built by Joergensen and her husband sit amid pillows and lanterns— this is where she imagines campers enjoying a glass of wine after a day on the beach.
