Nantucket Massachusetts Summer Home
When we began this project and the house was just in the framing stage, it was a completely magical place. I tried to capture the essence of Nantucket as I looked around the property and envisioned the completed home. My inspiration came from the way that the light danced within the spaces. I used the memory of that special light on the island as my guide. My color palette was white, but varying shades thereof, using cooler tones in the common spaces and richer warmer whites in the private bedrooms. I celebrated the complexity of the nature around the property, the ocean and the dunes, and the old town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, using layers and textures throughout. When choosing furniture and fabrics, paint color and accessories, I focused on simplicity but always with surprise interest. The end result was exactly as I imagined at day one. And now the home provides a calm oasis on the island of Nantucket.
