Red Alert

Decorator Tom Scheerer went long on red in his Swan’s Island home. “The kitchen was inspired by a lovely, woodsy, and rustic cottage we once rented on a nearby island. It came with an odd and modern touch—red Formica everywhere,” writes Sheerer in his book Tom Scheerer: More Decorating (Vendome, 2019). “With that memory in mind, as well as Maine’s ubiquitous crustaceous leitmotif, ‘lobster red’ seemed like a good choice for our kitchen too.”
