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!
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.
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.
A casual sitting area. Very relaxed. This might be the man cave!
I love everything about this kitchen. You have seen this rug (as well as the sea life rug) here.
I like the simplicity of this formal dining room, but would change up a few things. A smaller sized round carpet for sure.
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.
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!
