Feature Friday: Sarah’s Yellow Cape Cod

Sometimes when I am putting together these Feature Friday stories, it is hard not to be a little envious of the home pics I’m seeing all over blogland.  Today is one of those days.  Oh my gracious, Sarah at The Yellow Cape Cod is one talented mama.  She does this for a living too and it certainly shows.  The girl knows how to put things together and make a cohesive home.  So, let me get over my wee bit of envy and show you the goods at Sarah’s house.


Here’s Sarah.  Isn’t she adorable?!  It was hard to pick only a few photos to represent this beautifully adorned home, but you can hop over to Sarah’s for more details on her home tour page.  Talent, yep it is oozing over there.

So, I’ve loved Cape Cod style homes forever, they are so classic and pretty.  In fact, I put a bid on a rustic Cape Cod that I didn’t get, so that is another story.  The hunt continues though, I cannot wait to find my own fixer to spruce up.


Lovely and welcoming front porch.

glass insert front door

You won’t believe this story from Sarah!  She took her plain steel door and had it cut out and added a glass insert for $100.  Now, that project I’m filing away for later.  Love this!

zebra chair familyroom

Her living room is calm and classic as well.

zebra chair

Of course, I love this sassy zebra chair.  I think this was a thriftstore find.

black fireplace

Love her touches of black, that is one of my fave things to do around the house.  Painted black fireplace surround.

striped drapes

Check out these horizontal striped drapes, now those are pretty!

breakfast nook2

She added them in her breakfast nook too. Note the black interior doors. I love this when you have lighter walls.

dining room

The Dining room.

home office

Which in 5 minutes can turn into an office space where Sarah can bring clients for her interior design business.


Master bedroom in soothing shades of chocolate and blue.

Adore this blue chair

master bath2

Master bathroom has lots of personality.

Love this shelf for needful things.

daughters room

Her daughter’s room gets a fabulous touch of color and whimsy.

daughters room 3

Aren’t those paper pompoms just the cutest hanging from the ceiling?

daughters room2

I am guessing that Sarah’s daughter loves horses.  This is so cute!

Boys room

Her son’s room is adorable and masculine.

powder room

A red powder room got an update too.


Sarah is in the process of DIYing her kitchen. She has grand visions of a white kitchen and lots of details and I’m sure, looking at the rest of her house, that she will pull it off with so much style.  I can’t wait to see the after on the kitchen!

Thank you Sarah, for dropping by for a Feature Friday.  I just know all  my readers are going to love meeting you as well.  I love featuring beautiful homes done on a budget and Sarah has some great tips for saving money on home renovations.

I hope you’ll take time to go over to The Yellow Cape Cod and say hello to Sarah.  Don’t forget to tell her I sent you!

I’m headed down to Scott Antiques tomorrow with a couple of girlfriends, if any of you will be there.  Look for me!

  1. Rhoda, Thank you for the incredibly flattering feature. I’m humbled by your kind words. I’m beyond thrilled to have been featured on my favorite blog.


  2. Oh, what a pretty young woman and her home is so lovely.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  3. I just love Sarahs- simple and colorful style- I have been a fan for a long time. As we speak I am trying to talk my better half into that front door!!

  4. Love Sarah’s house… she has great style. Her blog is one of my daily reads.

  5. Wow, I love this house! Sarah has done a wonderful job! I love how the zebra print is reiterated throughout the home — and the black and white additions mixed with the colorful are absolutely fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

  6. WOW ! talk about curb appeal! what a beautiful home. And of course those black & white stripe drapes are ah-mazing!

  7. Oh I love her home. She is so clever. Thanks for the tour. Hugs, marty

  8. Hi Rhoda, it’s been awhile. Hope you are well! Just beautiful!! I love her home and LOVE that giant rolling pin in her kitchen! I will go over there and say hello 🙂

  9. I think some zebra is called for at my place now C:

  10. Her house is beautiful. It is such a neat idea to double the dining room as an office.! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Sarah’s home has always been one of my faves. I love how she plays with contrast…everything feels so fresh and crisp, yet there’s always a pop of unexpected whimsy here and there. I have a major crush on her zebra chair, striped drapes and numbered pillows! Great feature. ~Kerri, A Pop of Pretty, apopofpretty.com

  12. Hi Rhoda,
    I haven’t been by in a while and thought I would check in. Sarah’s home is very pretty! I’m sorry you didn’t get your cape cod, but I’m sure God has plan for your home and when you find it, it will be perfect! I may be contacting you soon for a consultation- so glad you are still offering them.

  13. I’ve always loved Sarah’s blog. I’m glad you introduced her to your audience, she’s so very talented indeed!

  14. Thank you for presenting Sarah’s House to us…she is certainly a very talented designer…Her home is beautiful.

    The home of your dreams is just around the corner, Rhoda…I know your faith will lead you there….

  15. Hi Rhoda,
    Yes, Sarah has a beautiful home. I especially like the cabinet with the folding doors to hold the wide screen TV. I am needing to reno our built in cabinet in our family room which holds the TV. I would love to be able to hide the TV when not in use. I will see if I can have matching folding doors made to match the other doors. Then I plan to paint over the ugly orange oak. I am now following Sarah’s blog and let her know I found her through you.

  16. Wow! You are right, Rhonda! That is one beautiful cape cod! I can see why you had that tiny bit of envy. Great, great feature!! One of my favorites that you have shared!
    Hope you have a fabulous time with your friends at Scott’s Antique show. Lucky duck!

  17. Rhoda, I have read your blog for a few years. I wanted to tell you that I enjoy all your features and more than that I admire your positive attitude when life has handed you “lemons” as you say. Keep doing what you do….it suits you:) Good Luck.

  18. While this home is cute, it is not a true Cape Cod style house. A true Cape Cod house is a center entrance with 2 windows on each side of the front door. How do I know? I grew up on Cape Cod and lived in one.

  19. Love your ideas! So glad I found your blog!!

    I love the while house I was wondering what colors did you use for the living room and the kitchen?
