We’re in the middle of summer so it’s the perfect time to tour a stunning coastal home located in Portland, Maine. I think Maine is the only one of the thirteen colony states that I haven’t visited.
I love both the furniture and architectural details of this coastal home. I’m assuming the Ann-Ida Lubeck sign features the names of the homeowners, but I could be wrong. The chairs flanking the dresser create a beautiful grouping at the bottom of the staircase.
Who doesn’t love a cozy corner for reading or enjoying intimate conversation with a loved one? The rich wood really sets off the gold-framed oil painting.
Striped wallpaper in the dining room creates a nautical vibe. Natural wicker chairs allude to the color and texture of sand. And did you notice the transom window leading into the dining room?
A beautiful light-filled hallway brightens the home’s interior. It looks like bead board on the cathedral-style ceiling. I like that the light fixtures are simple and don’t distract from the simple beauty of this space. A stone floor adds a hint of gray and additional texture.
The top of the staircase has an equally appealing grouping as the bottom of the stairs. A vintage glass-front cabinet in a large nook houses books and treasures.
I call dibs on this bedroom! Look at the view of the water outside the French doors. Blue and white stripes are the perfect decorating scheme for this coastal home bedroom.
Flowing fabrics soften a very pale blue bedroom with a four-poster canopy bed. Ceiling beams keep the vaulted room from feeling too lofty. It has just the right touch of airy appeal.
