Steal This Look: A Rustic Living Room on Spruce Head in Maine

May 24, 2022

When Annie first featured a series of renovated buildings on Spruce Head, Maine by sculptor-turned-builder Anthony Esteves, the small Cape quickly become a Remodelista favorite.

Originally built in 1754, the original hand-hewed frame, flooring, sheathing, doors, front windows, and chimney bricks were all maintained by Esteves. “The aesthetics are informed by the range of styles within early American homes,” he says, to include handmade Windsor seating, an antique-inspired sofa, and paint colors that reflect the historic property and surrounding nature. Here we detail the main elements that make up the living room space to recreate the look ourselves.
