 Homeowners Sarah and Chris Hines wanted their Norwell, Massachusetts, home to be a reflection of the things that they and their kids, Olivia, 12, and Cole, 10, like to do. “They surf, they’re out on their boat, they cycle—they’re an active, free-spirited family,” says designer Maggie Jerde of Maggie Jerde Design in Norwell, who was the designer for the project along with her partner, Jamie Therrien. Situated next to Jacob’s Farm, the home, built in 1999, has an old-farmhouse feeling. In the interior design update, Jerde says the Hineses wanted to incorporate modern design elements while paying tribute to the home’s original style.

 The white ultramodern handmade porcelain subway tiles with a crackle finish reach all the way to the ceiling. “On each side of the sink, we put floating shelves for the everyday ‘china’,” says Jerde. Pictured is blue-swirled “Strata” dinnerware from Anthropologie.

 “When I started the project, the first thing that hit me was the staircase,” says Jerde. “It’s right in the middle of the house, but the rest of the house is an open floor plan. I needed to treat these stairs special, otherwise they’re an intrusion.” Jerde says they decided to wrap the stairs in white shiplap. “It made quite a difference to the whole house.” The staircase boasts an antelope-print runner, and hanging on the wall at the top of the stairs is a complementing art piece reading SURF, from Bodega Nantucket.

 “The powder room had existing bead board,” says Jerde. “I knew I wanted to walk the line between farmhouse and modern, so we made the walls white but painted the bead board a mushroom color,”she says. The floors are a hydrangea blue-purple penny tile, which is a typical farmhouse style, says Jerde. The tiger print adds an unexpected accent.

 Even the mudroom sports modern elements. The floor has black-and-white tiles whose pattern is similar to that in the kitchen backsplash. “You see both patterns at the same time, and we didn’t want them to compete,” says Jerde. The vibrant blue cabinets have brass hardware, and a ceiling fixture brings out the different shades of blue.

 In keeping with the color scheme, more muted blues and grays distinguish the family room. Striking blue ceramic stools from Shop Candelabra add a splash of color in the console area between the kitchen and the family room. “We needed to keep that space open yet we wanted a design element there,” says Jerde.

 For the family room, Jerde chose an oriental rug from Caitlin Wilson and paired it with a lucite-and-brass coffee table from Jayson Home. Throw pillows on the couch are by Susan Connor and Rebecca Atwood, both based in Brooklyn.  “This was the first time I ever worked with a designer,” says Sarah Hines. “I thought it would be overwhelming, but Maggie made it fun and comfortable and really offered a greater perspective.”   —Marina Davalos

Forever I avoided yellow and yesterday I just fell in love with again. It's like puppy love.  

 This is a project we are working on for a sweet beach cottage in Plymouth.

 There is also something so beautiful with soft blues and yellow. It reminds me antique China.

Ethereal Master Bedroom

We have been working with an amazing family for a long time and jumped at the opportunity to design their Master Bedroom.  They wanted to wake up each day and feel like they were in a hotel.  We interpreted that as we had to make it calm and relaxing, but still chic.

 This is the starting point for the fabrics and the rug.  We fell in love with the area rug by Dash and Albert and added a custom leather boarder around the rug.  From there I knew that I wanted everything to feel light and fresh...white, white, white white and more white.  There was even a moment that the headboard was going to be metallic silver...but then decided to move the silver  to the wall behind the bed.    One of the challenges of this project is that there was very little space on either side of the bed for bedside tables, so we opted to do a custom bookcase that the headboard would rest in next to built in bedside tables.

A Beach Home Coming Together

We were lucky enough to work on a second home of one of our most favorite people of all times. She is a lovely person all around with fantastic taste (if we don't say so ourselves).  She always trusted us to do our thing, which obviously made every design meeting so much fun.

M A S T E R   B E D R O O M  //  We worked with Closely with Classic Tile and stone on the materials, including mother of pearl mosiac tile and The Cabinetry for the vanity.  

 This was our first inspiration board for the Master Bedroom.  We based everything off the large scale checkerboard print that frame the large french doors that look out to the Atlantic Ocean.  After we made that decision, I knew it had to be about the chandelier.  I wanted it to be primarily made out of glass so that it wouldn't block any of the gorgeous natural light.  The fixture reminded me of jellyfish.

Krigsman Yoga

Last summer I was at a yoga class with my husband and struck up a conversation with a super cool woman who was moving back to the area with her beautiful family.  We totally jived and it turned out that she was opening a yoga studio in Hingham,  She asked me if I would check it out and give her some advice.   I jumped at the opportunity!  

I love this project.  The client has a very specific vision, but also totally trusts us to bring it to life. (that is my favorite line to walk on).  The client is absolutely committed to this project and given us the space to bring her vision to life.

We are so excited about this studio.  It will have a soft open early this fall.  It is located at 25 Central St in the heart of downtown Hingham,.
