In the more intimate spaces, Herbert maintained an earth-tones color palette. The master bedroom is painted two-tone above a crisp white chair rail. Herbert chose the same “Limestone” shade as in the main living area, cooled down on the lower portion of the wall with a subtle taupe. The duvet, pillow shams, and the casual café curtains are a handsome check and crème brulee pattern on linen. A rug by Delos has a breezy yet subtle pattern of sand dollars, reflected in the bedroom’s soothing artwork. A serene water scene hangs above a club chair, while an image of starfish and sand dollars hangs above the bed.
The guest rooms are painted in “Eucalyptus leaf” and “Limestone,” continuing the earthy, comforting ambiance of other interiors. Seaside touches continue throughout such as on the duvet in the larger guest room with a sea creature’s motif. Whimsical barnacle lamps also play into the subtle sea theme. For a touch of fun and flair, mirrored side tables also reflect the Art Deco era found in the living room Martini table.
“Rob and Scott were great to work with—they knew what they wanted for their vacation house and just needed help executing it all,” says Herbert. Today the couple visit as much as possible, knowing when they arrive they will be surrounded not only by the beauty of Provincetown and its sandy beaches but also by their relaxed and soothing—yet sophisticated—second home.
