Designed by one of the most talented architects and builders, Polhemus Savery DaSilva, this coastal cottage combines an expanded cape form with shingle style elements and decorative interior finishes common in coastal Maine, the owner’s previous and beloved home location. A broad triangular gable sits atop a central entrance cape with a broad front porch and substantial columns. Turquoise board shutters with starfish cutouts, painted in Hazy Blue by Benjamin Moore, add casual fun to the exterior of the cottage. Shingled brackets, an eyebrow dormer and a ship’s stern balcony are at the center of the ocean cove facing back and surrounded by numerous windows overlooking the view.
Inside, a rustic stone fireplace with a rough-hewn timber mantle is at the center of the horizontally paneled living space while teak, mahogany and cedar paneling give warm rich character to other interior spaces. A small but important powder room is detailed as if it is on a yacht, with caulked teak floors and a real brass porthole holding a mirror. The warm tones and character of unfinished cedar board cladding make the sunroom a special retreat any time of day.

Seeing this Maine-inspired shingle cottage is almost as good as reliving a sunny summer day…

Don’t get me wrong, I love gray interiors, but it feels sooo good taking a break from them and sharing this beautiful and colorful place. Nothing speaks more to my soul than a shingle cottage by the water. 🙂

Hello, my sweet friends! How are you today?

I am feeling better today after talking to my grandfather last night. He was in good spirits and smiled at me often. There are so many good things happening right now and I had the opportunity to tell him that “life is improving”. I told him that I am so lucky for having someone like him in my life. He never doubted my capacity, my intelligence and made me believe I could go farther than I even knew I could. Encouragement… this is what he and my late grandmother always gave me, and I still keep their words in my heart whenever in doubt.

I hope your day is filled with good surprises. Remember, they don’t need to be big ones… always pay attention to the small yet special moments in your life.

We’ll talk some more tomorrow.

with Love,
