I could imagine this all lit up at night…with Christmas lights and without. Cape Cod houses just have an air of elegance to them without being out of reach. Anyone could own one.
The living room is a delight and I love the stepped fire hearth. Susan wanted it this way to create a seat up close to the warmth of the fire. All of the elements to this room, any one can do. White slip covered lounges in Cotton Duck (very affordable), garland over the fireplace from the tree outside, an old pine table with the legs cut off for a coffee table (look in junk shops), a pine chest of drawers in the corner (look in one of your bedrooms or your Grans house) and recycled pieces- from the bricks on the fireplace, to the old weather vane used as a sculptural piece, add interest and bring some warmth into this white setting….btw, I love those quilted stockings…he he!
