For my birthday this year, my friend Kim took me to Kennebunkport, Maine to see the designer showhouse cottages at Hidden Pond. There were 12 cottages and we saw almost all of them each one decorated in it's own unique style. Some were quite traditional beach houses with hydrangeas ans sea shells. Others used natural elements. All of them were inspiring and we came away with great ideas for our own homes. After the tour, we found a little restaurant in Biddeford Pool and we had fried shrimp rolls and fries as we sat in Adirondack chairs overlooking the ocean. A perfect day!
