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.
An industrial style hand rail inside the entryway leads to the second floor.
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.
