(We're trying out some of the best applicants from our New York Blogger Search — this House Call comes from applicant Johnny Williams. This house is in Maine, so we're posting it on the Boston site!)

Name: Jeff
Location: Rockport, Maine

Nestled on a hill overlooking Rockport Harbor, Jeff's home is a bold modern take on coastal design. Constructed three years ago, it was nicknamed "A Point of View" in response to some of his less-than-receptive neighbors. Love it or hate it, you have to admire the attention to detail — the lavish mahogany floors and cabinetry, white marble counters and vaulted ceilings...

A modern craftsman with a nautical influence.

What's your favorite room and why?

What's your favorite piece of furniture?

What was the biggest challenge in decorating your home?
Keeping it simple.

What's your proudest DIY moment?
Installing my own wallpaper in the downstairs bathroom.

Marble work for the kitchen.

Best bargain?
Mexican slate for the kitchen back splash.

What's the nicest time of day to be at home?
Early in the morning when its quiet and peaceful.
