The clean, relaxed look in blue and white mirrors the view of Maine’s southern coast. The front hall is outfitted simply, with a pair of Dutch doors and an inviting bench. Baskets hold everything from towels to flip-flops. In the family room, a table has been repurposed as an ottoman, with a tray set into the upholstered top. It’s a stylish place to prop up feet and rest a drink. Stones collected on the beach have been crafted into an inset that frames the firebox In the living room. Custom white cabinetry in the kitchen keeps clutter to a minimum, while wood floors make cleaning up after sandy feet a breeze. A vibrant subway tile backsplash, and counters made of recycled glass and cement, reflect the seaside palette and provide a pop of color. In the children’s bedroom, two rows of beds are an interesting spin on traditional bunks. Built-in drawers and bookshelves in place of headboards provide clever storage and make the most of the long, narrow space. Dormers in the playroom bring in additional light. This kid-friendly retreat is designed for comfort and rough-and-tumble activity, with a corduroy upholstered sofa and sturdy wool carpet.
