    The Beach House Series – Sunshine Yellow Cape Cod Bedroom


     Sunny Bedroom 

    This Cape Cod bedroom is the final room I’ve decorated in the Cape Cod Beach House Series.  This room is like a perfect beach day with sunshine yellow walls and accents of seashells.  

    What’s wrong with this window?

      The homeowner added this beach theme lace ready-made valance onto the existing curtain rod.

    The Beach House Series – Shells And Lighthouses Decorate Cape Cod Master Bedroom

     Cape Cod Master Bedroom

    A restful night’s sleep is a “shore” thing in this Cape Cod master bedroom. The sound of waves along the shell speckled shore and a lighthouse horn in the distance are the formula for a good night’s sleep while on the Cape.  The client fell in love with the casual comfort of the chambray patchwork of the Ralph Lauren bedding.

    My Little Girl Dreams Came True

    The dreams of a 7 years old

    Growing up the baby sister to two brothers left me lots of time for imaginative girl play.  Two things I recall doing was playing house (I made floor plans by raking pine needles into blue print style rooms) and playing with baby dolls. I was about seven when I declared that I would one day have a doll named Amy.
