Inviting Beds & Baths | 2020 Cottage on the Cape

Here’s a closer look at the beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms of the TOH 2020 Idea House: Cottage on the Cape.

Cottage on the Cape, Idea House 2020, Bed and Bath Jared Kuzia

The second floor of the Cottage on the Cape Idea House features an airy master suite and comfortable guest bedroom with accompanying bath, and ushers in a softer color palette throughout, which includes a transition from black to white windows.

A Bright, Airy Master

At roughly 16 by 11 feet, the master bedroom is hardly oversize, but a vaulted ceiling and light colors make it feel spacious. Designer Denise Enright chose a soft pink inspired by the Cape sky at dusk to direct attention to the master bedroom’s vaulted ceiling.

Decorative beams, finished with a transparent wood stain for a sun-bleached look, also draw the eye upward.

The wall behind the bed is covered with a textured, muted-aqua grasscloth. In a house where every inch counts, the distance from the wall to window was calculated to be just wide enough for a queen-sized bed. On the side table, a discreet sensor continuously monitors and automatically adjusts indoor air quality.

Sleek and Luxurious Master Bath

Though compact, the master bath’s packs a lot of luxury in a small space, with ample natural light and a heated marble-tile floor. The shower wall tiles are impressive 8-by-4-foot porcelain.

A sun tunnel—a highly reflective metal tube—brings natural light to the front of the vanity, where a multifunction mirror adjusts lighting for makeup and mood. For both upstairs baths, Enright specified contemporary nickel fixtures and hardware, a departure from the more industrial ones downstairs.

Room for Guests

A second upstairs bedroom features a light and breezy palette, and is paired with a hall bath.

An unexpected mix of soft paint colors—on walls, casings, and ceiling—enliven the guest bedroom. Pale bedding and ceiling-high curtains help create an open, airy feel.

Designer Denise Enright used the guest bedroom rug to inspire her choice of blue trim and a soft green ceiling. Leggy, light wood furniture echoes the white oak flooring, enhancing the room’s whimsical, beachy vibe.

Sun tunnels shed light in even the tightest spaces, such as the guest room closet.

Ocean-Inspired Guest Bathroom

The hall bath holds the house’s only bathtub. Blue glass tile and a driftwood-like finish on the contemporary vanity continue the house’s beachy theme.

An oval undermount sink, a polished-marble countertop, and a contemporary faucet keep the guest vanity sleek and modern. Edging profile creates a unique frame for the mirror.

Urban-Style Half Bath

A half bath located off the mudroom features a chunky, concrete-top vanity in a style that melds urban and organic. But what grabs all the attention in this room, says Enright, is the watercolor-patterned wall covering that looks like grasscloth. “People walk in and they have to touch it, but it’s just paper,” she says.
