A Year in Review: Happy 1st Birthday Cape House!
We have a big announcement, friends! Introducing Cape House: a home and hospitality boutique coming Summer 2017 to the south end of Amelia Island. The culmination of a dream for founders ‚Äì and Fernandina Beach locals ‚Äì Wes and Tiffany Hinton and Lance and Lauren Jones, Cape House will specialize in furniture, housewares, serve ware, and more ‚Äì all the items that make a house a home. Tiffany, interior designer and founder of Lola Interiors, has long dreamed of owning a retail location to bring the style and selections her clients love to the Amelia Island market. The Jones, who returned to the area in 2011, also believed they‚Äôd own a store one day - although with a hospitality (and gourmet cheese-heavy!) focus. As they became closer as friends, they realized they shared this vision ‚Äì and began the work to make it a reality together. But, before we start at the culmination of this dream ‚Äì let‚Äôs start at the beginning, where the concept was inspired: an anniversary trip to Cape Town, South Africa. Upon arrival in March 2016, the Jones and the Hintons immediately fell in love with everything about the town ‚Äì the scenery, the architecture, the color schemes, the crisp, coastal-chic style around every corner ‚Äì really everything! Blown away by its beauty, they felt completely at ease ‚Äì able to completely disconnect from their every day, embrace rest, and focus on the future, namely, this store concept. Conversations over glasses of Pinotage led to discovery of the root behind the whole concept ‚Äì their passion for meaningful and spiritual relationships and where they begin: in the home. By combining Lance‚Äôs love for the gourmet and Tiffany‚Äôs love for interiors, their dream took shape as Cape House! Today, March 3rd, marks one year since their return ‚Äì and it‚Äôs been business planning, and selecting products ever since. We can‚Äôt wait to share more! Stay tuned.
