At the far end of the room, a built-in breakfast bay is nestled beneath a wall of windows.

Coastal Kitchen

A roomy, welcoming kitchen embraces views of the Choptank River

Longtime clients asked designer Kristin Peake to give their new vacation home on Maryland’s Choptank River “a Nantucket look,” she says. “They wanted it to be comfortable, coastal and serene.” Designed by architect Leo Wilson, every room takes advantage of up-close water views—including the kitchen (right). Peake and kitchen designer Hedy Shashaani collaborated on this clean-lined, understated space. Off-white cabinetry emphasizes the view while the breakfast nook and its built-in window seat beckon beside a bank of windows. A custom backsplash from Architectural Ceramics depicting graceful egrets—the owners’ favorite bird—adds a personal touch.
