Tranquility rules in a Kent Island bedroom

A couple looking for an Eastern Shore getaway settled on a bucolic slice of farmland overlooking Eastern Bay on Maryland’s Kent Island. They hired a team that included architect Christopher Pattey of Becker Morgan Group and designer Erin Paige Pitts to overhaul an existing 1980s house on the lot, imparting a coastal-traditional vernacular both inside and out.

The completed, 8,100-square-foot project enlarged the residence to more than twice its original size—and features a 2,500-square-foot owners’ suite on the main floor with its own columned approach. When it came time to furnish the house, Pitts turned to the estuary environment for inspiration. “I tried to mix the colors of the bay and sky with the textures of the property,” she says. In the primary bedroom (above), she emphasized serenity with soft blues and creams that give the panoramic bay vista center stage.
