First Impression of this Martha’s Vineyard Hotel
Martha’s Vineyard is a Massachusetts island that is south of Cape Cod. Full of historic charm with lighthouses, beach towns and charming farms, it’s accessible only by air and boat.
Preppy and timeless in style, I knew that the Hob Knob was a Martha’s Vineyard hotel that would encompass the look and feel of the island!
I was greeted with light and fresh wicker furniture that was covered in an abundance of pillows! What a warm welcome! Pillows can be such an easy and inexpensive way to bring texture and color to a design.
Blooms surrounded the porch to contribute to the relaxing retreat feel. Copper gutters and a brass bell were perfectly placed metallic details for texture and warmth.
One of my favorite features on the outside was the grand wrap around porch. The polished and shiny wood floors were reminiscent of a classic sailboat. The wood’s deep and rich tones alluded to classic luxury!
The Hob Knob is a Martha’s Vineyard hotel that speaks to the style of the area from the moment you walk up.
I could’ve stayed on the porch and relaxed all day, but I had to see how lovely the inside was!
Inside the Hob Knob
I stepped inside to find out that it was not only charming, but warm and filled with simple details. Every element was perfectly placed to contribute to the cohesiveness and charm.
Simple pieces of art were hung strategically so that they could each be noticed and admired. Too much art can make a place feel cluttered, but using just a few pictures here and there is perfect.
Cozy and warm low-profile carpet was pretty to look at and softened the interior. And pristine, white beadboard with wainscoting captured the charming, stately look.
I love the blue and white platters that were perfectly positioned on the walls of the dining room. Learn how you can hang platters on your walls to mimic this style! The whole room felt simple and elegant at the same time!
And those Windsor chairs were so comfortable! I am thinking of sourcing them for our breakfast room!
More Hob Knob Details
I mentioned the blooms around the porch when I first walked up to Hob Knob, and I got to see them again outside our room. Look how pretty and colorful they are through the pretty paned window in our room!
All of the decor, from the pictures to the books to the vases and dishes, have been placed in the perfect location.
This allows each of them to be stand out on their own while contributing to the overall effect. The Hob Knob is so serene and inviting!
