Bayside Retreat

Discover the waterfront charm of this farmhouse in Maryland.


The home incorporates cooler shades for its exterior. The barn-inspired garage has a greenish-gray hue, while the home itself features a light French gray. Inside the home, visitors are greeted with warmer shades in the living room.

Finding a farmhouse-style home set against an inlet of Chesapeake Bay, rather than in the middle of a country town, might seem unusual. But for interior designer Keira St. Claire at Anthony Wilder Design/Build, farmhouses can fit any landscape.


“The client wanted a farmhouse with a clean aesthetic, so for this project she wanted to go a little more modern,” Keira says. “It was all about subduing the interior to give the exterior a voice.” The home is located in St. Michaels, Maryland, a town rooted in the easygoing atmosphere of the bay, and Keira’s client wanted the home to reflect the bay’s laidback appeal.

With warm tones and soft fabrics, the living room is full of life. The space utilizes unstained wooden shelves to give a natural feel to the home. “The subtle fabric of the chairs gives a focus to the outside view,” Keira says.
