Cape Code Style

Blue & white - a classic palette.

Blue evokes calm and tranquility - opt for soft shades tones and dusty tones for a soothing effect. 
Blue and white is the perfect answer for decorating a Cape Cod style house. 

Modern Cape Cod homes are known for their restrained coastal feel and grand proportions. Georgian symmetry, weatherboards, natural stone features and white accents are some of the trademark features of the style, and although the traditional Cape Cod design of colonial America has certainly evolved from its New England 17th century beginnings, the distinctive characteristics of this style are instantly recognisable and have been embraced the world over, including here in Australia.
