From Place To Space: Cape Cod

13 February 2012 0


By now, I hope many of you got used to our little inspirational trips on Mondays. To keep the tradition, let’s buckle up and head off to a new destination where we’ll discover nature, sights, food and interiors. Today we are visiting one of the most beautiful corners of the United States – Cape Cod. I spent beautiful, sunny autumn days in Cape Cod. Staying in a local cottage satisfied all my cravings for coastal interior design and decoration. Blue hues, handmade quilts, cushions with local toponyms, stripes, wood as dominating material and a very relaxed and laid-back lifestyle made this vacation unforgettable. 

Traditional clam chowder, bike rides in beautiful nature, long beach walks and sunbathing plus a vibrant nightlife combined with beautiful coastal New England homes left such a good impression on me – and I am sure I’ll be back one day. 

Have you been to Cape Cod? If so, did you like it and what left a strong impression on you? Happy new week, friends!

    It’s so bright! I’ve never been there but why not, it seems a very pleasant place.
    Funny because I do every monday a “Monday Trip” on my blog for one year! I think Monday is a good day for that πŸ˜‰

    Never been there but a walk on that beach sounds like an excellent idea.

    I’ve been twice. I live in the province of Quebec so I drove there both times. It’s a long drive but still we can drive. What I remember most are the sand dunes and I took many pictures of the houses because I like the weathered wood of the houses and their style. Oh also the drag queens and the whales in Provincetown lol Clam chowder and the bed and breakfast where I stayed… twice You have beautiful pictures.

    I was born and raised on the Cape: to me it is the truest definition of “home” I know.

    just discovered your blog, nicely done! sorry i missed you when you were out this way. I’m somewhere between Boston and the Cape, but get out to Ptown a lot.

    Keep up the good work. Bill

    Will visit there one day looks wunderbar… for now I get my Island Coastal fix by going to the well hidden gems of the German coast and Islands …try out the Island of Ruegen… perhaps not as commercial as the US (which I like, being an Irish woman that likes to shop and hit Pottery Barn) but the same vibe on many levels…especially for Nordic Style houses, thatched and clapboard. Not to mention yummy locally smoked fish. Keep up the blogging its great… and makes me HAPPY!

    Hello! I just stumbled across your blog and love your adventures and photos that go with them. Do you know where the Cape Cod print in this blog post is from? (I know it’s from 4 years ago, but I’m hoping that you might remember!)
    Thanks, Heather
