A Provincetown condo’s interior by Shor Home Furnishings combines an ambiance of relaxed fun with seaside flair.
When Rob McBride and Scott McCoy purchased a charming little house in the new Herring Cove Village community in Provincetown, they needed some guidance on how to transform the bare interiors into their personal space. “Rob and Scott walked into the shop and were looking for wallpaper for their master bathroom,” recalls Herbert Acevedo, owner of Shor Home Furnishings, a home furnishings and interior design shop on Commercial Street in Provincetown. “We began looking at a few selections, and during the process, they asked if I could help with the outfitting the rest of the house,” he says.
Herbert and his new clients decided on a paper called “Sand Shells” from the Thibaut Boathouse Collection, which was fitting for the house’s seaside location. A simple trip to choose bath wallpaper turned into a much more extensive endeavor for the couple and Herbert. After choosing the paper, Rob and Scott asked Herbert to design the rest of the interiors spaces in their rather empty getaway home. Herbert soon came to see the rest of the house.
“The new single-family townhouse is part of a condominium community, and its design follows the vernacular house style of the region—there is even a cupola,” notes Herbert. “It has great bones, is well constructed, and has good finishes.” The house is compact and vertical with three floors. The main open-plan living space consists of the kitchen, dining area, and living room, centered around a soaring cathedral ceiling and fireplace. French doors lead to open-air porches off the living and master bedroom spaces.
