Seaside Decorating for the Holidays

Fanciful octopuses with glittery tentacles dancing on a hallway table. Holiday tablescapes brightened by silvery starfish. Tiny  wooden squirrels peeking out of autumnal mantel garlands. And all the glory of Cape Cod and the Islands’ natural bounty. On these pages, we share the holiday visions of seven Cape and Islands interior and landscape designers. Take a look and be inspired by this quintessential coastal magic!

An antique Cape parlor glows with an imaginative, richly textured Thanksgiving design framing an old sea captain’s fireplace. Marsha Potash, designer at Hyannis Country Garden, combines traditional autumnal materials with whimsical natural touches such as brilliantly feathered birds, adorable crouching squirrels, unusual bumpy pumpkins, and boldly fashioned floral designs with creatively massed flowers and foliages—all from the Hyannis store’s greenhouses and seven-acre nursery. “I love all the gorgeous fall colors and it was a delight working in this lovely antique Cape in Centerville,” says Potash, noting that she enjoys working with customers to provide holiday decorating for both interiors and exteriors. “Country Garden is full to the brim right now with all kinds of seasonal treasures,” says Potash, who adds that one of the greenhouses has been turned into a wonderland with themed vignettes, including decorated trees, ornaments, and everything Cape Cod for the holidays.
