We all love a beautiful coast home and even though we think of them as summertime retreats, a coastal Christmas brings it’s own special type of coziness.
I don’t know the source of the image below (let me know if you do so I can add it), but how warm and inviting is this shingle style home with the beautiful green/gray stain, garlands and lighted lanterns welcoming guests? You can just smell the spiced mulled wine simmering on the stove.
The Maine coast can be a harsh environment even in Summer. But how adorable is this cottage on the water featured in Coastal Homes magazine?
And here below are some pics I’ve taken over the years at the Newburyport Holiday House tour in Massachusetts. I’m unable to attend this year’s tour (an event I look forward to every year) which is a bummer. But I can’t recommend it high enough if you’re local and are looking for a fun city to visit for some shopping and inspiration.
Speaking of inspiration, I’ve put together a large selection of coastal inspired decorations that I’m sure you’ll love as much as I do!
