Jay and Diane Speakman bring their work home with them. And their house is more beautiful because of it.

“We have a lifestyle store,” Jay says. “And we live the lifestyle.”

Their shop, Sesame and Lilies in Cannon Beach, and their cottage in Gearhart, share a distinctive aesthetic. It is an eclectic, romantic mix of contemporary and antique furnishings with rustic natural elements. The inspiration is part French and English country, part Maine and Oregon seaside, and, according to Jay, all Diane.

“I think it’s very Old World,” she says of the look. “It has that frozen-in-time kind of feel to it.”

The Gearhart cottage, built sometime in the 1890s, once featured a front porch, enclosed by previous owners, that now serves as living room for the Speakman family. It opens to the dining room and library.
