This renovated Maine farmhouse uses native evergreens and plants in the landscape. Natural stone is used in the landscape to make the space look natural, as if you came up the home while hiking through the forest.
Many antique pieces are present in this historical Maine farmhouse. The distressed wood of the console table matches beautifully with the rustic accessories and the artwork, blending history with modern day decor.
A movable fire bowl nestled into newly established colonies of bayberry, winterberry and fern extends the use of a Maine garden beyond dusk. Slabs of lichen and moss-covered granite are used as benches and form a firewood crib. The property is
within Acadia National Park along the west edge of Somes Sound on Maine’s Mount Desert Island. Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design won an American Society of Landscape Architects award for the entire project.
Old meets new in this fabulous farmhouse kitchen. The Island is a blend of reclaimed wood with a new granite top. Exposed wood and brick give the kitchen a vintage feel. The stainless steel appliances offer modern style along with state of the art technology.
The home's dining room combines rustic elements with a twist of modern. The reclaimed brick and wood wall, along with the antique sideboard juxtaposed with the glass and metal chandelier and contemporary dining set, encompasses the rustic modern style at its finest.
