How to Achieve the Classic Cape Cod Look for Less!
We tour a classic American home on Open Home Australia and then help you find the Look for Less!
This classic American home we get to explore in this clip of Open Home Australia reminds us of the modern farmhouse style that has become very popular in the US. The designer and builder of this gorgeous home (which she also lives in), Claudine Sheppard, takes us on a tour of her house.
It begins in her welcoming foyer that has a hanging mirror above a small console which holds some lovely white flowers.
The home’s decor has a bit of a nautical feel, with accents and select furniture pieces in bright blues and navys. It feels clean and spacious. The walls throughout the house are all painted white. The kitchen has a white backsplash as well as white cabinetry. Throughout the home there are several plants and flowers as well as decor that uses natural materials, like wood and wicker baskets, to make the place feel warm.
As Claudine explains, she didn’t want the home to be something “on trend” that would go out of fashion in a few years. We think she nailed it and would love to live in a timeless home like this.
