Past Meets Present in a 1760's Captain's Cottage By the Sea

There are many reasons Coaster's Chance Cottage has appeared across several TV networks over the past few years -  not only has the 1760s captain's cottage gone through an incredible transformation by Moore House Design, the results are absolutely stunning. And don't even get me started on the waterside location in Cutler Maine, USA! So beautiful! Every single room is magical, but I especially love the kitchen - where the lofty ceiling height and rustic wood beams create a light and airy space with a nod to the past. A sea of muted colours, the interior is also a master class in texture from aged dark wood, reclaimed floorboards, vintage rugs, exposed brickwork, ceramic pots, linen curtains and bedspreads to the lovely antique furniture, giving the entire space a wonderful, warm soul. Can I move in, please? 

How beautiful. 

I've heard that Maine is probably the place in America which is most like Scandinavia (is this true, Maine friends?) and I long to visit one day.  If I do, I'd certainly try to book this house

Could you imagine staying here, too? 

You can read all about the various room renovations and the details over at Moore House Design

Meanwhile, it's our final day in Cornwall - the surfer paradise in Southwest England, and my girls have had so much fun  with their cousins. We'll be sad to leave tomorrow! If you'd ever like to visit this corner (literally) of the world, my sister rents her beautiful home through Airbnb. 

I'll be back on Friday with some snapshots from our cabin - and our new armchair which has quickly become my favourite item (and Per's too - ''finally a comfortable chair''!). See you then!

  1. Just curious, I haven’t received any new blog posts to my email account since your last one stating you were going on vacation. I checked your website and see a few new ones.
    Can you check to see why they haven’t come to my email directly. I so look forward to those.
    Many thanks, Shelby

  2. Me too! I seem to be dropped from your e-mail list. Thanks, Margaret

  3. I lived in Sweden for a year and I would say Vermont has a SCandinavian vibe as well!

  4. Me too! I have just unsubscribed to try and reset but I can't find where to do it!

  5. When we traveled around the Stockholm archipelago, we kept commenting on how much it reminded us of coastal Maine.

  6. I too have been missing blog posts! Please fix!

  7. My home area of Southeast Alaska is often compared to Norway but Iand the immigrants would settled here certainly felt this coastline was familiar.

  8. Cape Cod in Massachusetts also has a Swedish vibe! Similar coastline, lots of shingled summer cottages.
