The Cottages at Cabot Cove
Kennebunkport, Maine
An airy ode to preppy, nautical style fills each of the 16 individual cottages at this seaside New England getaway. This one (left), called the "Float In" cottage, has it all—whitewashed paneling, stripes, and a boat load of seaworthy accessories (think signal flags, model ships, even decommissioned oars).

cocktail napkins
Small touches, like this compass rose embroidered on a set of cocktail napkins, continue the seafaring look.
Import New England-chic into your home with sailing motifs and a classic blue and white color palette.
