Washashore Home – Peyton Lambton & Sarah Waldo
Peyton Lambton and Sarah Waldo founded Washashore Home in 2015 out of a mutual desire to create a design business with something for everyone. The pair can take your project from beginning to end, or they can help with small pieces along the way. Lambton herself washed ashore on Cape Cod after marrying a local in 2012. A native of east Tennessee who worked in home design for television on HGTV and the DIY Network, she describes her style as “rustic coastal,” pulling inspiration from both the beach and her southern roots. Together with business partner Waldo, who grew up in Dennis and graduated from Parsons School of Design, her goal is to provide clients with fun, affordable, and approachable design with lasting appeal.
The two women bring different strengths to Washashore, so every project is the result of their complementary talents. “Sarah and I work so well together because we each bring a unique perspective to the table,” says Lambton. “We can easily bounce ideas off one another to make sure the end result is exactly what our client is looking for.”
As for establishing their studio space in Dennis Village, Lambton says both she and Waldo have a love for the area. “We eat at the restaurants; we shop at the businesses, especially when we’re pulling pieces to finish a project,” says Lambton, explaining that within Dennis Village there’s a small but flourishing community of design professionals. “We collaborate together and support one another. It’s a lot of fun.”
