Cape Cod Homes

What is referred to in the United States as the "Cape Cod home" is an interpretation of an architectural style brought by British settlers to the area in the 17th Century; it remains very popular today.

"The roof of a Cape Cod home is often a major field of color. Consider contrasting that dark gray, green or black roof with white for a classic look, or soft grays or neutral sand tones for a more blended feel.”

— Sue Kim

Cape Cod Homes

The classic structure is a solid design—made for the tough New England weather—and is built low and "boxy," originally to withstand seaside winds. A pitched roof, still a design element today, was also incorporated for added protection.

Cape Cod Paint Palettes


For the Cape Cod Cottage style, consider a range of traditional paint colors for your home's exterior. Try Ultra White paint as the main color, La Fonda Trail Green for the shutters and La Fonda Geranium Red as an accent color.
