I must have Maine on the brain because I’ve been looking at Airbnb homes near Kennebunkport, and then I found this charming timber frame house by John Buckley Architecture + Design. The home is located near Goose Rocks beach and is pleasingly decorated in an eclectic coastal style.
There are many details that I love about today’s home tour, but the basics begin with the walls and floors. In the entry, a circular floor treatment pairs well with the straight lines of the vertical painted paneling. Further inside, the paneling is horizontal and a pale sea green floor sets the stage for a wooden work table surrounded by windows and a small banquette.
The architectural details of this Maine timber frame house create oodles of interest throughout the interior spaces. The pairing of wood and white makes the beams and posts stand out, while subtle touches of color like the vintage blue dry sink in the dining room add a bit of whimsy.
Step back and you can better enjoy the layout of this beautifully renovated coastal home with its wood floors and a more minimalist style decorating approach.
Note how the posts and beams define the living areas despite the open concept layout. Slipcovered furniture pairs with colorful pillows for a casual approach to living in a coastal town.
So, I want this exact bathroom in my house. I adore the little sink with the single bulb light fixture above the simple vintage mirror. The brushed gold fixture add a touch of class and I even think the toilet is cute with its little flush handle. I’m now thinking of putting painted vertical paneling in the downstairs bathroom.
Sandy colored kitchen cabinets echo the vertical lines of the painted paneling. I love the pairing of the white paneled ceiling with the wooden beams that are common to a timber frame house.
A soaring ceiling in the family room gives the colorful family room an airy appeal. A wallpapered wall lends a bit of drama to the eclectic coastal style space.
Wallpaper makes its appearance in the bedrooms too, along with vaulted ceilings. Simple furnishings create a serene space. The blue reading lamp adds charm for nighttime reading. Note the choice of windowpane rug that creates eclectic interest with the softly patterned wallpaper. I like unexpected decorating touches like this but am always afraid to try it myself. I need to step out of my comfort zone.
A soft floral wallpaper graces one of the bathrooms with a beautiful free standing bathtub.
Love this bedroom with its posts, beams, vertical white paneling and soft linen shades at the mullioned windows. The Jenny Lind bed is the perfect selection for this space with the soft blue comforter and nubby throw at the foot of the bed.
A kids bedroom features built-in bunk beds.
Another bathroom is beautifully tiled on both the walls and floor.
A seafoam green custom vanity adds just the right pop of color to the bathroom.
Many of the Maine Airbnb homes I’ve looked at are similar in style to this eclectic coastal style timber frame house by John Buckley Architecture + Design. I’m trying to go next year sometime. I hope you enjoyed today’s tour!
