We've been crazy busy and exhausted from a summer of getting the house ready, including the neverending kitchen reno (no, it's still not really done!) and so a bit of an escape to a friend's house on the Cape (that's Cape Cod, for non-New Englanders) is just what we needed.
so happy to be on vacation!
head of the meadow beach: we pretty much had the place to ourselves
It is peacefully, blissfully quiet and wonderful on the Cape in late September. We were lucky to get some sun-soaked days, and the temps got to around 70 degrees. It was perfection!
More belly pics than you could want? We are just a week and a few days away from the due date now, so more baby pics than you could want are coming soon ;-) And because this design blog post would not be complete without beautiful room images, here's where we stayed. Ready? This "cottage" is so gorgeous. Definitely livable year-round. We didn't want to leave.
to the left is a wall of sliding doors that open to the deck and garden
the house is full of beautiful designer details: not your typical vacation rental
this is the pre-addition, older part of the home, with a low-beamed ceiling that just adds to the coziness
the master bedroom might be my favorite room of all. so much light.
how great is that armoire, and the rug?
and the deck off the master has a beautiful view of the gardens. see what i mean? bliss!
