Welcome to At Home on the Bay where I share my passion for decorating our house on Blue Hill Bay.
I have a passion for decorating although I am not a professional. I just know what I love and figure out a way to do it. I am an avid DIYer, and my husband is very handy too and a big help when it comes to power tools and construction projects.
We bought this old house overlooking Blue Hill Bay in the Down East area of Maine four years ago as an investment. Our plan was to rent it out during the summer weeks and eventually retire to it. We love it so much and find ourselves spending more and more time here and we finally feel like we have the time to decorate it.
The house is over 100 years old. There was an addition added in the 1980′s which included an expanded kitchen, mudroom and bathroom. It has good bones and there are lots of pretty details like crown molding and old wide pine floors.
and then there’s the view…
My decorating style is an eclectic mix of old and new with a comfortable and casual feel. Some of the budget friendly projects you can find here are repurposing, painting, sewing, and crafting along with some baking.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
