Bean. These very first trips resulted in a a lot-celebrated Slide 2020 runway fantasia of orange-sole duck boots, emerald-hued corduroy suiting, camo-lined puffer vests, and other iterations of New England outside equipment absent extremely large design and style.
That collection, in turn, led to his immersive layout 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. Due to the fact then, Snyder has retained coming again to Maine for more, creating quite a few further collections with L.L. Bean and, most not long ago, debuting new interiors for 20 just one-bedroom bungalows at Hidden Pond.
“I fell in enjoy with Maine when I started off coming up here,” Snyder says, “and I’ve uncovered so much much more about it considering the fact that then.”
This time about, tasked with planning the 650-sq.-foot bungalows at Hidden Pond, Snyder observed it as an “opportunity to genuinely just take a deep dive into Maine aesthetics,” he suggests. “What’s so interesting and extraordinary to me about this area is that it’s so numerous, spot by spot. You travel 50 % an hour, and it’s absolutely different.”
To celebrate this variety, Snyder—who labored with Concealed Pond’s in-residence structure workforce, Krista Stokes and Mark Cotto—created a trio of seems, every one particular tied to a diverse component of the landscape that has so completely captivated him: the rocky shoreline, the soaring mountains, and the forested countryside.
For the coastal bungalows, he spun a mild and brilliant, neat and breezy tale, with neutral sand and very low-distinction blue hues, whitewashed woods, pale sisal rugs, and an oyster shell-pattern wallpaper centered on a decoupage design and style by his pal John Derian. He took specific inspiration from central Maine’s Mt. Katahdin when devising the mountain bungalows, taking part in with cognac-hued leathers, darkish blue velvet, and a William Morris acanthus leaf print on the partitions to channel a luxed-up log cabin appear.
