OUR TEAM

JEANNE RAPONE

PRINCIPAL DESIGNER

As a child, instead of doodling, Jeanne would spend her days sketching and designing her dream apartment on graph paper. As a young adult, she transformed these sketches into architectural plans throughout her time in college.  After receiving her degree, Jeanne continued her passions as a self-employed kitchen designer; designing spaces from her own home. Jeanne always had a vision of owning an interior design firm where all clients' needs can be met under one roof. This vision became Centerline Design & Build in Yarmouth, ME in late 2016. For the last 27 years, Jeanne has designed kitchens, bathrooms and interiors from Maryland to Bar Harbor. 

Jeanne's work has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, New England Home, This Old House, Maine Home and Design, Coastal Living, and many other home publications.
