An open kitchen, anchored by a massive island by cabinetmaker Derek Preble, features ample windows further extended by transoms. Homeowner Kathy Brodowski selected tile, furnishings, and finishes, which builder Geoff Bowley and architect David Graham brought to life.

This room used to have blue walls, a drop, acoustical-tile ceiling, and a pool table. As part
of a renovation, the builder raised the ceiling to the rafters, inserted skylights, paneled the ceiling in beadboard, and added a gas fireplace and decorative balcony, whose rails mimic the exterior porch’s railing. Hurlbutt Designs in Kennebunk used sturdy outdoor Ralph Lauren fabric for the wingback chairs, part of an effort to make the house renter-friendly.

Art as an Anchor

 

In the dining room, a colorful abstract by Erik Knight called A Painter’s Space is one of two paintings that set the tone for the interior design by Linda Banks of Simply Home and Banks Design Associates. Banks added a custom-designed wainscoting to break the height of the walls and add architectural interest. A handmade Italian table, chandelier, and wall sconces add some elegance, while the green chairs and blue console bring in some playful pops of color.
