So I’ve been watching the Kennedys (filmed right here in Toronto) and loving every minute of it – not just the story itself (which, of course, is incredible) but also the set design and depiction of their Cape Cod compound and the Cape’s quintessential style. We actually just moved into a classic Cape Cod ourselves this past week so admittedly, I’m a bit obsessed with all things crisp, white and, well, “Cape” (ok, promise that’s the last time I’ll use the word in this post!). It probably also has something to do with the fact that it’s summer and it’s hot and nothing says cool more than preppy, classic, nautical. Truth be told, though, I’ve always been a fan. Fortunately for me, navy is the colour du jour and motifs such as coral, sea fans, and sea life in general are still going strong and can be found just about everywhere.
I’m so in love with this look, and have many fun images to share with you, that I think it warrants a Part 2 to this post…so stay tuned for that and prepare to be inspired to plan a late summer getaway, perhaps!?
Um, yes please! Doesn’t everything just look better clad in cedar shake?
Builders take note – THIS is how you do new-build. We came across these newly built beauties in Provincetown.
A great example of what introducing wood tones and natural elements such as bamboo into the navy & white palette can do for a room. Clean and classic.
Another gorgeous seaside bedroom. This one much more subtle with those tone on tone stripes. What a great idea using 2 different shades of natural linen to create that wide stripe on the upholstered headboard and oversized bolster pillow. Definitely stealing this idea!
How fun is this?! This is one way to get your kids to go to bed! (I wouldn’t mind sleeping in one of those cozy bunks myself).
