If you’ve read my blog for some time now, you know how much I love cottages. I have been sharing cottages (or vacation homes), most of them coastal, for years here on Home Bunch. Living by the sea, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the coastal lifestyle and its unique architecture. This shingle-style beach cottage is located in Portland, Maine and it was beautifully designed by Bowley Builders. and artistically photographed by Irvin Serrano.
You simply can’t help but feel completely embraced by the timeless shingled exterior featuring a traditional Gambrel roofline and the neutral yet comforting interiors.
Also, make sure to take notes on the inspiring color palette this home offers.
Maine Shingle-Style Beach Cottage
This fairly-sized kitchen features classic white cabinets, dark stained kitchen island, plenty of millwork and the transitional “EF Chapman Visual Comfort Darlana Linear Pendant” over the kitchen island.
The living room is cozy and grand at the same time. I love the ocean views and the comfortable furnishings.
Living Room Paint Color
“Benjamin Moore Lenox Tan HC-44”
Gorgeous ceiling details! I love the chandelier and the natural wood paneling.
Kids’ Nautical Bedroom
A nautical-themed bedroom is always a must in every beach cottage. Don’t you love this one?!
The four beds were custom-made. “Lighting is from Circa Lighting”.
Bathroom Paint Color
“Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray HC-173”
This is one my “go to” paint colors. I love how well it can work in almost any space.
Serene and private, this cottage by the sea seems to be a wonderful place to build memories at…
The weather is pretty yucky, wet and chilly around here. We got so much rain and mostly of the snow melted and nothing looks pretty outside right now. Seeing this home reminds me of how beautiful summer can be. Does anyone miss sunshine as much as I do?
I really can’t wait to have warmer days… I think it will be great to go for walks on the beach with our puppy and the kids.
Dear Spring, I know it’s only January, but I am already ready for you! 🙂
Enjoy your day, my friends!
