When it came to the flora, my intention was to aesthetically complement the natural environment. A lot of the native plants and trees have been maintained, but pockets of curated vegetation have been introduced throughout the grounds. Japanese maples, rhododendrons, azaleas, and magnolias aren’t commonly found in this region, but provide a beautiful contrast to the pine, cedar and spruce of the surrounding area.
What aesthetic were you going for when it came to the design of the interior?
There really isn’t a lot of striving. I generally buy things I like, and make them work in the space. Although my tastes have differed over time, there’s always this granular aspect that I think makes things I like work well together.
Whether I have something that’s extremely modern or something antique, there are ways of putting these items together in a really warm, welcoming way. It’s not a stark, beautiful home that you feel like you can’t touch; you can jump on the couches.
The kitchen is an eclectic mix of wood,subway tile
and stainless steel. It’s warm, with a beautiful view to the outside.
The adjoining area is probably the most used in my house, a place where everyone congregates. We usually have breakfast there at the table, and many cold mornings are spent there on the couch next to a roaring fire.
Upstairs, a glass bridge to the master bedroom provides a great view of the main living spaces. The girls’ bedrooms are toward the back in a quieter side, and a small home office nearby.
Get To Know Lyndon:
Color scheme I’m currently coveting: I love using mixed materials. Whether it be concrete meets subway tile, or French oak meets sheepskin. With a dash of pale pink.
If I weren’trunning Herschel Supply,
I’d bean architect.
I’m 10 times more productive when: I get a nice morning run in.
What is your favorite part of the home?
Definitely the outdoor spaces, particularly the dock. The reason the house exists in this location is to be amongst nature.
