Lately I’ve been poring over Coaster’s Chance, a 1760s captain’s cottage on the coast of Maine, north of Acadia. The house is the newest project of Rhode Island-based Moore House Design—and their first Downeast. Available to rent, the interiors have been redone in moody hues befitting the palette of pine, rocks, and seaweed outside the front door.
Join us for a look around:
“Our team went at it with razor blades, putty knives, and sandpaper to expose as much of that original plaster as possible. As we were working, we started to fall in love with the map-like look of the two materials and ran with it—adding a bit of coffee-colored paint slurry over the top to soften the contrast.”
