Eclectic Home Tour – Old Silver Shed

Classic coastal home - love the hydrangeas

I love Cape Cod. The cedar shake homes, the clear blue water, the hydrangeas around every corner. So when I discovered Sandra of Old Silver Shed on Instagram, I fell in love with her dream coastal home on the cape that is the perfect blend of modern and vintage style.

This is one home in my Eclectic Home Tour series where you get to peek inside some of my all time favorite homes.

  2. I love your blog and read it regularly BUT the ads are over the top. Too many! and popping up all over when I try to read your content. I know you need ads but some restraint would be appreciated.

    1. Thanks for being a reader of my blog! I have someone managing my ads and I try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. I hate those pop up ads too! I’ll talk to them and see what I can change. Thanks for letting me know!
