Based on the number of times I have seen the above image on Pinterest, I am sure many of you have already seen this gorgeous cottage in Maine featured on Remodelista, but I love it SOOOOO much I have to post it for you. Honestly, I know I say this a lot, but this might be the most perfect house I have ever seen. :)
The house sits right on Martinsville Bay in Maine - so close to the shore, in fact, that the first order of business was ensuring that the high tides stopped flooding the basement. It was originally a general store, later converted into a home in the 1930's. The current owners, Fiona and Tony Hooper, were given a copy of the diaries of the two ladies who lived there for so long by their realtor - how neat is that?
The architect Sheila Narusawa overhauled the interior, and I especially love the white ship lap that runs throughout everything. Her niece Justine Hand took these bright and airy photographs, and wrote the most beautiful post about her experience at the cottage and its history on her lovely blog designskool. (Her blog is absolutely perfect - you should really go take a look!)
