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.
Reclaim wood, distress paint and a antique mirror are the perfect match for new chrome fixtures and marble counter tops. The mix off historical rustic elements blended with new in this powder room comes together with attractive results.
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.
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.
