The Classic Cape Cod Coastal Design Style

A Classic Cape Cod Coastal home is the beach version of a traditional home. Think shingled wood exterior, millwork, upholstery, and an open floor concept. This is a bright and breezy home.

Picture in your mind a Nantucket or Hamptons-style home (a la the Diane Keaton classic film Something’s Gotta Give). This style of home is famous for its air of formality, the smell of sea salt, and shiplap everywhere. Its large gathering rooms have skirted upholstery, curved sofas, winged back chairs, and side tables.

We call this coastal style home classic because it knows how to honor your parent’s more traditional style and do it justice. It builds on both the classics and the antiques.

If you want a sense of calm, stillness, and serenity, this is the home you want. You’ll love every bit of its classic nature and preppy vibe. This home encourages you to gather around the kitchen island with a glass of wine or sink into the casual furniture to unwind.

This interior design style is coastal luxury at its finest. So if you’re looking for a home away from home that happens to be at the beach, the Classic Cape Cod Coastal was made for you.
