Step Inside This Charming Blue and White Beach House

Today’s blue and white beach house by DiMauro Architects leaves me yearning for a vacation somewhere by the sea, but I could just as easily live in this house year-round! Lucky for me, hubby and I are headed to Maine later this week. It’s my first time visiting that state. If you’ve been there, let me know what I shouldn’t miss. We’ll be staying in the Kennebunkport area. Now – back to today’s beautiful home!

From the moment you lay eyes on it, the beach cottage draws you in with a warm welcome and anticipation of good memories to be made. The hanging rattan chair is your first clue that charm and comfort is woven throughout the home.

You’ll find the exterior blue and white color scheme is repeated throughout the house. The kitchen enjoys navy blue cabinets with white counter tops and subway tile.

Modern style Windsor chairs snuggle up to a wooden kitchen table with a woven pendant light overhead. The bay type windows let lots of sunlight in to brighten the cozy dining nook.

The living room is bright and cheerful with a pretty fireplace and blue and tan furniture grouping.

Simple furnishings grace the master bedroom with linen drapes that can be pulled to block the morning sunlight.

A kids room features matching bunk beds and blue and white stripe bedding.

A wood vanity pairs nicely with dark blue shiplap walls in one of the bathrooms. Cute little globe sconces add the finishing touch.

I find the home’s exterior just as appealing as the inside. Love the pale blue door on a side porch – and I’ve always been a fan of board and batten siding!

The home enjoys outdoor living spaces to soak in the fabulous weather and sunny days.

  1. Have a great time in Maine, Jennifer! Drive further north to Acadia National Park, eat lots of fresh lobster, sit overlooking the ocean and revel in its power. Beautiful state!

  2. Hi Jennifer. Kennebunkport is a lovely area to rest, relax and eat. Portland is about 40 minutes away depending on traffic and is a fun town to walk the street, shop and eat. Anywhere along the coast of Maine is beautiful. Have a great time. YELP is your friend.

  3. Oh lucky you! So much to do around there! There’s a wonderful potter upstairs right in town called good earth, I think I should know have a lot of his pieces. His name is David and he just about always works on Sundays. There’s a cute little shop called Farm and Table that’s off rte 9 heading to Cape Porpoise. Make sure you drive by the Bush’s compound and just before that is the stone church which has some pretty stained glass and the architecture is beautiful! It’s also a nice spot to sit and watch the boats from your car or in your own chairs. I can’t really think but there’s lots to see and do. It’s one of our favorite spots and we’re lucky it’s let than 90 minutest away on back roads from home so we can go often year round. Enjoy!

  4. Portland! A lovely town to walk around with some nice places to eat. Then, head for the water. There are many lovely homes to gaze at and photograph. When I went it was close to Christmas with snow on the ground so I am sure it will be even lovelier in the summer.

  5. My Kennebunkport recommendations:
    The Lost Fire, Earth, the casual side at White Barn Inn, Pier 77 and the Ramp, Musette
    Coffee and or pastries – Dock Square coffee and Mornings in Paris

    Cocktails – porch looking out over the Atlantic at the Cape Arundel Inn

    Shopping – so many but don’t miss Dannah’s, Smug Harbor Farm, Antiques on 9, Americana Workshop.

    Don’t miss driving down Ocean Ave to check out the yachts – can change daily.

    You will have a wonderful time!
