My seaside-loving self can’t get enough of this one!! An oldie but goodie, the Coastal Living Idea Cottage of 2008 located in picturesque Scarborough, Maine was designed by Tracey Rapisardi, one of my favorite beach-chic designers. I’m sure you’ve seen some of these photos taken by Jean Allsopp, but I was excited to find some new ones on Tracey’s site. The playful elements (love all the stripes!), vintage touches, beachy hues and weathered coastal accents give the new home the character of a long-standing beach cottage. Then there’s the door painted Valspar’s “Shaded Cove”! Read all about the home at Coastal Living and check out their list of sources for more info on this gem!

Beautiful! Love the worn wood look in the kitchen area!
I love every single image you posted. This is my to-"die"-for house. It's so restful, inviting and happy. And, yes, that front door paint color is just the perfect shade of sea blue/green. I have a piece of sea glass from Maine in that exact color. Thanks fo posting and sharing. Enjoyed it so much!
