A Victorian Nautical Home Built by a Sea Captain

This Victorian nautical home is a great example of classic nautical decor mixed with beachy decorations. Take a look!

Victorian nautical home
Not that I would want this kind of square footage! But surprisingly this nautical Victorian delivers lots of inspiration for what I would love to see in my cozy dream cottage or Florida high rise getaway!

nautical living room
The home was built by a Sea Captain in the mid-1800s and was brought back to its original beauty in 2006. It's located in Maine and known as the Big Pink. For more details go to Simply Home. Here you see a corner of the living room. Open, airy, great architectural details, dark wood and classic nautical accessories such as a porthole-esque mirror, a model ship and a search light. All evoking the spirit of exploration and unlimited possibilities.

nautical living room inspiration
The library. Here I see inspiration for a cozy nautical living room. The beach is prominently represented with a sea life rug, chairs and pillows in a coral pattern, as well as a small collection of shells on the coffee table. It's a good mix of light and dark colors.

nautical sitting room
A casual sitting area. Very relaxed. This might be the man cave!

nautical kitchen
I love everything about this kitchen. You have seen this rug (as well as the sea life rug) here.

nautical dining room
I like the simplicity of this formal dining room, but would change up a few things. A smaller sized round carpet for sure.

beachy bedroom
Perfectly beachy, with elements that tie into the nautical style, such as the dark wood chair and a lamp inspired by Glass Floats with netting.

nautical bathroom
And a wow factor with Clarence House La Mer Wallpaper! I wouldn't change a thing in this charming nautical bathroom. I'm loving the knot board as wall decor too, it "ties" it all together!

I don't usually like wallpaper, but the lobster in the bathroom is so appealing...

The first thing I noticed was the widows walk...at least it looks like a widow's walk. There are so many good things about this home, I don't know where to start!

I'm getting ready to redo my sailors knots piece. It's getting a bit shabby, time to breathe new life into it!

This is a beautiful home with lots of details that are interesting and that fit with the overall motif without being over the top. I can see why you had to tour it.

beautiful home, though the size of it looks intimidating. Loved the rugs, shells, coastal themed rig, and best of all is the bathroom. This would be my dream bathroom, white.. bright and coastal themed.
