Reimagining a Provincetown Beach House

Provincetown beach house

By Maria LaPiana

The couple had a clear idea of what would complete their Provincetown paradise—and the first time they bought, they came close. They’d spent a year renovating a townhouse across from the water and were just feeling at home there when karma strolled in. A cottage the two had coveted forever finally came up for sale, and townhouse or no, they dove in. The story of how they made it their own is featured in our 2015 Cape & Islands issue. The highlights: They melded two discrete styles,  “structured and contemporary” with “fancy and Old World.” They let light and air take the lead, painting the walls a pale, warm gray that changes with the fabulous Provincetown light, and they bleached and then whitewashed the pine floors. They imbued the cottage and its outdoor spaces with sophistication, but didn’t let go of the all-important beachy-feel. Take a look; the issue is on newsstands on June 9 and making an appearance in mailboxes this week.
