TAKE A PEEK AT THE LITTLE PEEK HOUSE
Read On To Find The Reason Behind The Name Of This Stunning Contemporary Home
On the island of Vinalhaven in Maine is this contemporary brick structure. Built as a place to retreat from city life, this structure consists of the main house and a guest house connected by a fully screened porch. This house is built perched atop a rock and is accessible via a footpath from the water. From this path, you can only see glimpses of the house as you get closer hence, the name Little Peek.
These glimpses are just a taste of what the house has to offer. Every bit of design was made in consideration of the culture and environment of Maine. One example is the screened porch itself which was designed for dinners under the stars. The cedar shingles that adorn the exteriors were made by a local family-run mill. Inside, the interiors were designed in a contemporary style with whitewashed walls and minimal wood to emphasize the beauty of the surroundings outside.
The interiors are filled with a casual but edited mix of American and French antiques and textiles juxtaposed with the clean lines and playful finishes of late 20th century contemporary design.
