An East Coast-Inspired Home That Masters Sophisticated Comfort

On a two-acre plot of land on a quiet street in historic Knowlton, Quebec, lies this relaxed and elegant New England-style house. The area has a mix of Victorian and mid-1800s Loyalist clapboard homes, which lend a distinctly East Coast vibe to the village — and it was that sensibility the homeowners hoped to capture. Interior designer Scott Yetman obliged by painting the home’s wood-plank walls in classic white and using a palette of muted tones inspired by seaside-weathered wood for the floors and cabinetry. “The architectural backdrop is the same throughout,” says Yetman. “What changes the character of each room is the artwork and the furniture, but the house itself reads as a unified whole.” Click through to see inside the cozy, East Coast-inspired home that’s comfortable and sophisticated all at once.
