The empty-nest owners of a grand, circa-1920s home on Maryland’s Gibson Island tapped architect Jonathan Rivera, interior designer Elizabeth Reich and builder Ray Gauthier of Lynbrook of Annapolis to create a seamless addition that would accommodate visiting children and grandchildren. Taking cues from the home’s vintage style, the design team produced a quaint guest cottage connected via a hallway to the main house. Pictured here, its charming second-floor bedroom offers stunning views of the Magothy River through arched windows. To accommodate the sloped ceilings, Reich floated the Hickory Chair four-poster bed against a chest from CFC. Lee Industries chairs sit by the window, where the designer traded window treatments for uninterrupted water vistas.
