For a family that loves Cape Cod in the winter as much as they do in the summer, our team faced an unusual task: striking a balance between an airy beach house and a cozy winter escape. The solution came in the form of a modern country retreat, styled specifically for its seaside environs. Appending a large center “barn” are smaller wings of varying heights and shape. The home’s interiors blend layered textures and warm wood tones with white shiplap and watercolor accents. Their combined effect is one of perennial comfort, spoken in a contemporary coastal language.
