The best thing on this morning’s trip through Facebook —
discovering this vacation rental house on the wharf in Provincetown, MA:
Loving the exterior New England-y gray shingles
+ black window sash, amIright?
Provincetown is a hipster community
located on the very tip of Cape Cod, MA:
Having only seen Cape Cod from the air
as I once flew through Boston,
I didn’t realize that its tip was such a pronounced hook.
One day, of course, I hope to visit, but for now,
let’s get back to dreaming about that waterside house.
Just look at the view one gets from the living room.
Oh, yeah — the sea + all those gorgeous sailboats are divine,
but let’s get real.
Didn’t we first notice that nautical chic deck decor,
starting with that epic blue + white striped rug?
Or is it just me?
It’s not just me.
But wait, there’s more:
The living room, how do I love thee?
Exposed ceiling, groovy rattan sofa with blue + white stripe upholstery . . .
. . . wicker chair + sawbuck table + industrial lights . . .
. . . pair of distressed, brown leather chairs AND that FLOOR!!
Anyway, it looks like there are 2 sleeping spaces . . .
. . . including this cozy upstairs loft:
More stripes! And isn’t that the perfect old, blue paint color!!??
Extra points for the “leaner” photographs, too.
Downstairs, just beyond the kitchen, we find a larger bedroom:
I totally hung a giant flag on the wall behind our bed once,
but tragically, it didn’t look as cool as this one does.
Maybe I should re-think + re-visit that idea, though.
Anyway, back to the living spaces:
That window seat, with the all the “Kay fabrics” is swoon-worthy, for sure!
Point me to the striped fabric + get out of my way!
I love the kitchen’s pendant lighting, open shelving + cabinet cubbies,
the nautical clock, + check out all the artwork!
I love how some is hung up high + some is resting atop the counters.
Speaking of hanging artwork “up high”,
did we notice this pair of framed art
flanking the living room window gable?
Unexpected + genius!
This concludes our fantasy stay in Provincetown, MA,
which has inspired me to do the following:
sewing something striped, stat!,
+ hanging some artwork, maybe later today!
