Inside Out

Erin Paige Pitts crafts a Bishopville, Maryland, home's interiors with water views in mind

Inside Out - Clients building a waterfront home in Bishopville, Maryland, found an enviable location for their custom abode: a narrow peninsula that enjoys creek vistas on one side and expansive views of the St. Martin River on the other.

The couple enlisted architect Christopher Pattey of Becker Morgan Group to conceive a plan that would showcase windows on multiple walls in every room; on the main floor, 13-foot ceilings and rows of transoms bring in even more light.

Erin Paige Pitts was tasked with designing the interiors. “They wanted the home to be one with the water,” Pitts explains. “It has nearly 360-degree views and takes advantage of them from almost every room. The interiors are intended to complement, not compete, with the views.”

Pitts selected organic materials and finishes that blur the lines between inside and out. In the open-plan kitchen/family room, a pristine white palette connects the kitchen, with its Calacatta Gold marble island counter and clear-glass Visual Comfort pendants, to the sitting area beyond. Low-slung Vanguard sofas and X-frame stools from Palecek keep river vistas center stage.
