Cape Cod cottage

Happy weekend everyone! What have you got planned? I think we’re going to have quite a lazy one as it’s been such a busy and full-on fortnight. Maybe just a trip down to Maltby Street market on Saturday morning, cosy up in the afternoon and then a bit of making on Sunday. Bliss.

I’ve got a beautiful house for you to look at today, which transported me away from dreary, cold London to the prospect of simple summer living in a part of America I long to visit. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but sometimes you can find inspiration in homes where you would never expect to find it. This Cape Cod cottage was built in 1807 and belongs to Remodelista‘s Justine Hand, who has tried to keep all of the original features of the cottage in tact. She has furnished the cottage minimally and instead, added floral arrangements to every room to bring life into every corner.

There is so much that I take away from a home like this: the colour palette, the beauty of simple furniture, pared back clutter-free living. I love it. What do you think?
