    The One Thing

    Nap conjures sweet dreams

    Sometimes you just want to take a nap. Julie Simms’s new shop, Nap, knows this about you, with the artist’s hand-pieced and -stitched quilts gently billowing on a clothesline across the store, located on Provincetown’s main drag in a seaside shingled cottage. Simms’s designs have a vintage vibe with a thoroughly modern sensibility, combining the look of everyday textiles from a grandmother’s home with spare, often asymmetric arrangements. Simms derives her well-worn color palettes from the shifting environment of the Cape itself, with its startlingly sunny skies, nor’easter blusters, and foggy horizons. Each piece is unique, and there are pillows too.

    Nap, 427 Commercial St., Provincetown,
