Todd Snyder just can’t stop Maine. The Iowa-born designer behind the eponymous New York City–based menswear label commenced viewing the Pine Condition again in the summer of 2019, when carrying out investigation for his debut collaboration with L.L. Bean. Those people to start with outings resulted in a a great deal-celebrated Fall 2020 runway fantasia of orange-sole duck boots, emerald-hued corduroy suiting, camo-lined puffer vests, and other iterations of New England outdoors equipment long gone very significant fashion.
That assortment, in switch, led to his immersive design for a Todd Snyder x L.L. Bean two-bedroom treetop lodge at Concealed Pond, a luxe Kennebunkport, Maine, vacation resort set amid 60 acres of birch-dotted forest. Considering the fact that then, Snyder has kept coming back again to Maine for much more, developing quite a few additional collections with L.L. Bean and, most not too long ago, debuting new interiors for 20 a single-bedroom bungalows at Concealed Pond.
“I fell in adore with Maine when I started off coming up here,” Snyder suggests, “and I have realized so significantly a lot more about it since then.”
This time all over, tasked with planning the 650-square-foot bungalows at Hidden Pond, Snyder saw it as an “opportunity to actually just take a deep dive into Maine aesthetics,” he claims. “What’s so appealing and outstanding to me about this put is that it’s so diverse, location by place. You travel 50 % an hour, and it is completely distinct.”
To rejoice this vary, Snyder—who labored with Hidden Pond’s in-residence design workforce, Krista Stokes and Mark Cotto—created a trio of appears to be like, each and every one particular tied to a diverse element of the landscape that has so completely captivated him: the rocky coastline, the soaring mountains, and the forested countryside.
For the coastal bungalows, he spun a gentle and shiny, neat and breezy story, with neutral sand and low-contrast blue hues, whitewashed woods, pale sisal rugs, and an oyster shell-sample wallpaper dependent on a decoupage style and design by his good friend John Derian. He took unique inspiration from central Maine’s Mt. Katahdin when devising the mountain bungalows, actively playing with cognac-hued leathers, darkish blue velvet, and a William Morris acanthus leaf print on the walls to channel a luxed-up log cabin glimpse.
