Welcome to five splendid Cape Cod HOME holiday doorways created by talented interior and floral designers from Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. Be inspired by elegant della Robia-informed fifteenth-century swags rich with natural and silk floral elements, or savor quintessential Cape Cod beach house creativity featuring fresh evergreens brightened with red holly accents and charming rustic bells. Imagine a sophisticated, yet casual Martha’s Vineyard entrance with fun and festive props, or dazzle your friends and family by combining the sparkle from one-of-a-kind silvery holiday trees and beautiful glass orbs shining bright against nature’s finery. In your own garden, you can gather the still-beautiful bounty of hydrangea blossoms, rose hips, pumpkins, and sea holly, which can be combined with elements from local nurseries into stunning wreaths, garlands, and planters.

It is the holiday season on Cape Cod and the Islands when our glorious natural world glimmers with the understated beauty of wintry sea and sky. Frame the splendor of that world for your own Cape Cod or Islands home this holiday season!
