The house’s open floor plan and linear style called for an interior design that would not compete with the lines of the house and the views beyond. For the living room and family room, the homeowners worked with Barbara Gisel and Marjo van Gelderen of Barbara Gisel Design, who had designed the interiors of their home in Pennsylvania. Here, the room proportions required custom rugs and furnishings. “We asked them to work within a very limited set of design parameters: there are only three colors in the house—white, gray, and garnet—and I wanted to keep all the color on the floor,” explains homeowner Leslie Jones. Playing off a painting of a New England meadow by Margaret Gerding above the fireplace, the designers made a large white living room warm and cozy. They also incorporated the homeowners’ desire to use Maine-based craftspeople and furniture makers whenever possible.
