Today’s Eclectic Home Tour of Nicola’s Home is a coastal dream house with interiors that give the stunning view a run for its money.
Nicola of Nicola’s Home owns an interior design firm in Maine and believes in “creating welcoming, honest, timeless environments that work in concert to evoke a singularly unique sense of place.”
This waterfront home oozes curb appeal from the sliding barn doors over French doors to the colorful flower bed and stepping stones leading to the entrance.
Wood beams, a shiplap ceiling, open shelves and a farmhouse sink add warmth to this white kitchen. I love all the texture from the woven pendant lights and striped rug.
The natural wood bar and shelves tie in nicely with the old wood beams and the fun detail of the peek through window is such an unexpected touch.
Everything in this dining room makes sure the star of the show is the water view.
I love the old screen door that opens to a walk in pantry, also with a stunning view.
White walls and trim are the perfect backdrop for colorful art and sliding barn doors.
A massive stone fireplace is a beautiful focal point in this cozy family room and a simple piece of artwork mimics the view outside. I love a sectional sofa in a cozy room like this. Built in bookcases flank the fireplace and are the perfect place for showing off unique finds.
A built in window seat with storage underneath means there is no wasted space in this home and it’s the perfect place to curl up with a book.
Blue bedroom accents mimic the ocean view. Nicola uses texture so well … notice the turned wood bench, bamboo curtain rods, woven chair webbing, rattan headboard and sisal rug that all blend beautifully together.
Bold pops of color in the master and guest bedrooms makes these spaces anything but boring.
It’s all in the details in this small bathroom with a live edge vanity, unique lighting and hardware.
The lighting in the family room reminds me of fireflies and is much more interesting than typical recessed lights.
The best seat in the house overlooks the water.
Nicola says, “At every step of the design process, I put myself in the environment. If it feels right, I go with my instincts. If it doesn’t, I step back for perspective. I know my work is done when it feels like a space I could embrace as my own.”
I think she hit the design nail on the head with this home! I love that it’s not your typical “beach house” filled with whale decor and seashells!
Nicola is so lucky to call The Barn her office. Make sure to visit her to see more of her stunning design work.
I’ve filled my Amazon shop with lots of eclectic finds for every room and season.
