I’m not ready to relinquish summer. In defiance, I’m imagining a myriad of moments to wear more white, a roster topped by the cheery new Salt House Inn in Provincetown, RI and this bleached denim dress by Rachel Comey.
Reborn by an experienced team of hoteliers and designers, Salt House was built, as its name suggests, as a cluster of cottages to house salt miners in the 1850s and later became the quirky Dexter’s Inn. Suffused with classic Cape Cod style – weathered cedar shake siding, rambling stone walkways, white wainscoting everywhere – the 15-room inn now redefines the B&B concept as fun and sophisticated, a strategy anchored in a morning meal that spills from the chic communal dining room to the wisteria-laced pergola. After this sunny start, I would spend the day at the beach, periodically retreating to the Loft, an eloquently outfitted oasis with the just the right amount of amenities to busy but not distract me: a desk for postcard writing, a slate armchair to nest in, a claw foot tub for steeping, a wall of curiosities as muse (what short story might the antique pie plate inspire?) Surely this sun-washed palette would assuage my blanc begrudgement.
