Eclectic Home Tour – Castine Maine
Ever since I visited Maine a few summers ago, I’ve dreamed of buying a second house in one of the many charming coastal towns. I’d sail, pick blueberries, ride my bike along the shore path, eat lob-stah and drink margaritas while watching the sunset over the Atlantic.
My friend Loi from Tone on Tone is living my dream in a historic Castine, Maine home. I now have to live vicariously through him – and so can you!
I’ve featured his amazing Washington DC area home HERE in case you missed it.
After you tour this stunner, come back to check out all of my Eclectic Home Tours.
Built in the early 1800’s, the home comes complete with a barn connected by a breezeway.
Speaking of that breezeway …
Loi removed the ceiling to expose the beams.
I’m not normally a fan of ceiling fans but I’m a big fan of this galvanized fan!
When not entering the house through the breezeway, you can come in through the front door.
Did I mention that Loi also owns and antique store.
A 10 year old kitchen got an update with a few coats of paint on the cabinets, new counter and an amazing sink!
This was the original kitchen where meals were cooked up in this huge brick fireplace.
Another fireplace in the dining room.
One of five bedrooms.
An antique hooked rug is art.
A attic guest bedroom with twin beds from Ikea.
A mix of antiques and fun finds like these nautical mirrors from HomeGoods mix together effortlessly.
The best part … living a stones throw from Castine harbor.
Loi is moving on and selling this beauty but the good news is we can see how he transforms his next project – a cottage in the same town.
Make sure to visit Tone on Tone and follow along on his next decorating adventure.
I featured Loi’s beautiful Washington DC area home HERE if you want to be wowed some more!

Who is the artist that painted the wonderful painting over the mantle in the living room? Love it
Hello, Jean – Thanks for asking about the painting. There’s no signature so we do not know. Cheers!
This is really beautiful! One of my favorite features of the home is the artwork used throughout. Such pretty colors but soft and inviting. 😉
I love the art too Stacey! Loi is an antiques dealer so of course he knows a great piece of art when he sees it!
Stunning he really knows how to make a house a wonderful home. Love all the antiques simple but, well i could look and look and never see it all . Thanks Kelly.
Agree Marlene – he really knows how to make a minimal home comfy!
Thank you so much, Marlene!!
I found Loi on Instagram shortly after started using it. He was one of the first that I started to follow and I fell in love with his home and his style. On instagram , one can only surmise what the rest of the room looks, like let alone the house. This is stunning! Thank you Kelly for your guided tour and Loi for sharing your vision. I’m heading over to your post on his DC home!
Yes, Loi is amazing and I found him on Instagram too! Glad you enjoyed the tours of his beautiful homes!
What a beautiful home! Love how light and airy it is!!
