"Sea Worthy:" a 1950s Beach Cottage


This 1950s beach cottage was part of a Decorator Showcase in Kennebunkport, Maine.



Cottage Home Designs decorated this cottage, called "Sea Worthy." You can see the rest of the photos on their website or rent the cottage here.

P.S. I'm on a 1950s kick today--I'm showing a 1950s kitchen on my other blog, Hooked on Houses. It has very little in common with this one, though!

  1. I love that painting, and the starfish strewn about the table. Ah, to be in Maine. Some of my favorite vacation spots are in that state. I once read that over 50% of people who LIVE in Maine also VACATION in Maine!

  6. What a great little beach cottage, what with the blue/white/yellow color scheme. Never looked at "nautical" this way before.That IS a porthole mirror on the side of the cupboard, isn't it? This is cozy. Thanks for sharing. Sue

  8. Kennebunkport might be a tiny corner in Maine but it is packed full of delightful places like this little cottage and oh so worthy of being included in your cottage collection.

    Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures.

  12. Love the neutrals and blues. Always a favorite. I like that this one doesn't seem so over-the-top high-end as well. Very do-able for anyone, really. Lovely post.

  13. Hi, Julia,

    I was having trouble getting your Hooked on Houses to load, but wanted to send you this link for that blog. It's the house in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and I know you'll love it.

  14. Thanks, Bonnie! I've had people stopping by my blog looking for information about it and I had none to give them.

    P.S. I'm having trouble getting to my other blog today, too. Not sure what's going on.
