What girl doesn't like baubles, fashion and style? For generations, the fashion and design worlds have always worked together hand-in-hand . . . like peanut butter and jelly, or bread and butter, or even dark chocolate and red wine;). Everybody knows that whenever there is a fashion show, there will be trends to follow immediately - from the cut, to the fabric to the color and length.
I recently read an article that specifically spoke about "fashion & home design" - something that I honestly never thought of. I guess in my mind, it just stayed within the fashion world, but with the Oscars that just finished, the fashion trends have flowed over into the interior design world. I suppose this has been going on for a long time and I just never realized it - so this is why I've chosen to present this blog with "fashion" plus "interior design".

Maine. If anyone knows me, then they know that Maine is my ultimate inspiration. Could it be the fresh salt air, or the smell of wildflowers as you drive Route 1 towards Port Clyde, or maybe the incredible food - sweet lobster with hot melted butter, fresh codfish just caught hours before, or the homemade blueberries muffins my Mummy makes every morning.
Port Clyde is a small picturesque fishing village, located on the tip of the St. George Peninsula, approximately 2 hours from Portland. My Mom and Uncle own and manage the Ocean House Hotel (center photo) - an 11 room Inn that is full of rustic charm. Within walking distance, you have an art gallery, the Dip Net restaurant, the Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum (Tom Hank's Forrest Gump movie was filmed there), and the Monhegan Boat landing that takes you to the artistic island of Monhegan.
