I haven’t been reading Architectural Digest that much recently as I felt it really wasn’t showcasing homes that intrigued me that much- too over the top, to fancy, too….MUCH. But this current issue has one giant spread on this family “compound” in Maine that just blew me away. Not only is it decorated by Suzanne Kasler, a favorite of mine, but in copious amounts of blue and white and the kind of traditional style that appeals to me so very much. In other words, while it’s still over the top (I mean, the pool house kitchen is nicer than 99% of real kitchens) it’s done so beautifully and so “family feeling” one can’t help but gawk, in a good way. THIS is good style in my book.
I love the patterned drapes in this family room mixed with the graphic rug.
The architecture is to die for here, but so is the simple sisal runner bordered in blue and the drapes with the little bead detail.
ADORE this casual dining bnaquette looking into the kitchen in the main house. #blueand whiteforever
Another view of the kitchen featuring two tone cabinetry and a view of the ocean.
The master bedroom is soothing and simple
I want to curl up on the settee and read for hours.
A very “manly meets feminine”den.
LOVE this kids room. Graphic and fun but timeless and ageless.
A powder room done in one of my all time favorite papers from Galbraith & Paul (using it in to homed right now is different colorways!)
The “pool house” (holy sh*t)
Featuring the most perfect pool ever.
This is the inside of the POOL HOUSE, y’all. I. can’t. even.
And the poolhouse kitchen! WHAT? Crazypants. I had a pool house when I was little and I was scared to go in there because it was full of spiderwebs and scary insects hiding underneath the pool floats stored in there.
A welcoming patio with fireplace. S’more anyone?
The barn. Because of course it has a gorgeous barn. What lives int here you ask? Wait for it……
LLAMAS AND GOATS!!!! That’s who!!!!! As if this place couldn’t get any more perfect, they have friggin’ llamas and goats (my version of #squadgoals). *Sigh*
Here are some great finds to bring the look of this magnificent house into yours!
