We were back in Kennebunkport last weekend on a last-minute, pre-Memorial Day mini trip. We stopped at Snug Harbor Farm to pick out a few plants on our way home, and it’s 100% my happy place and total inspiration for our garden / life / everything.
We picked out a hibiscus tree, a hanging fern for the porch, a potted fern for the dining room, and a plant we totally forgot the name of for the living room. (Do you know what it is?!)
We took off toward the sea last weekend, no plans in mind except stepping out of reality for the day. We ended up in Newburyport for lunch, and we’ll definitely be back to explore further. The town was settled in 1635 and there are still gorgeous 1700’s buildings standing, giving it an English feel. Old New England seaside port towns – like Wiscasset or Portsmouth – feel like time traveling to me. I love exploring them and it was amazing to stumble on this one. Next time we’ll do this historic house tour, and do more research on thrift and antique shops in the area.
Our house trim is getting super shabby, so it’s time for a major update! I spent some time in the paint store today, matching swatches until I came up with the perfect color set for our brick house. Now I just need to figure out WHERE each color goes.
Color #1: Benjamin Moore Carter Gray. This color is perfect for the clapboard siding on the house extensions and the garage / carriage house. We’d also use it for all of the porch, window, and door trim, including the porch and entry floors.
