Cape Cods have always had a special place in my design heart. When we were just 23 my husband and I purchased a quant little Cape Cod of my dreams. It had dormer windows with planked walls and one tiny bathroom for all to share. It was tiny but it was mine and I loved it! We only lasted there a whooping 4 months before we had to move for work, which in hindsight was probably a good thing since we popped out 2 more kids shortly after. Can you imagine 5 people sharing 1 bathroom?? Umm no thanks. Anyway, ever since we made the move to our now cookie cutter house, I have been yearning for some architectural details in my life. And these Cape Cods do not dissapoint. Shiplap galore, washed wood and white on white details are what my coastal loving dreams are made of. Here are some of my favorite Cape Cod homes of Pinterest lately.
Want to take a step inside one of these beautiful homes? Me too. When I saw this home tour of the very talented designer Raquel Garcia featured on Elle Decor my heart skipped a beat. She did a marvelous job of taking a classic Cape Cod and designing a beautiful feminine space to raise her 3 girls in. The stairs just set the tone for the rest of the house. All the lucite and brass details take the shiplap and white oak floors to the next level. Photographed by the equally talented Alyssa Rosenheck, this Cape Cod will be a Pinterest favorite for years to come.
