A New Cape Cod with a Kitchen Dreams are Made Of

Katie is a girl after my own heart. She and her husband recently found a piece of land in an established neighborhood near ours and built a home full of timeless character, that fit them and the neighborhood, while exhibiting some hard to find features in the area. First of all, a home is only as beautiful as those who live in it, and their family is beautiful inside and out! From the moment I stepped in their home, Isla and I felt welcome. After seeing their new home, I couldn’t resist asking her if I could share it and she kindly obliged. I can appreciate that she, like I, prefer to find the “right” pieces, rather than immediately filling the space with things you don’t absolutely love.

I love how their adapted Cape Cod home has all of the space and amenities, without an oversized curbside presence and that they maintained a neutral color palette both inside and out.
You know as soon as you step into their home that it’s going to be beautiful because this foyer light fixture and crown moulding in the entryway.
The dining room features wainscoting, an eclectic mix of silver, chrome, stainless, and brass which pull together beautifully with the buffet. And that dining room table? It’s EVERYTHING! Katie found it at a favorite antique store.
Who doesn’t love a statement making chandelier in the dining room?
Mixing old with new makes guests feel right at home. In the center, is a table passed down from her Grandmother, complimented with modern nailhead chairs.
Their open concept living room opens to the kitchen and breakfast area, making it easy for Katie to keep an eye on Tommy while cooking.
They complimented an otherwise all white kitchen with a grey island and grey countertops.
The barstools {from Restoration Hardware} pull the grey veining in the white macaubus countertop.
Clearly not the best photograph, but I had to show you the pretty grey countertops!
One of my favorite features in a large kitchen are lanterns above islands. They have a way of making a new kitchen feel timeless and intimate.
In their son Tommy’s room, they displayed special mementos and photographs, including a personalized baseball bat. What a great gift idea!
And that Tommy, he got white hexagon tile before me! I have been longing for this in our bathroom.
The master bathroom is a dream! Beautiful tile compliments a Carrara marble countertop over furniture style cabinetry.
A glassed in subway tile shower and jacuzzi tub? Yes please!
Thank you Katie for sharing your home! What’s your favorite feature?
