Nantucket Calling

Friday greetings, friends! How are things? If you’re feeling nostalgic about summer days past, I have the perfect home tour for you – an 1880s Federal style home that was completely rebuilt with historically accurate details in mind by Botticelli & Pohl Architects. The interiors have been beautifully outfitted with 18th and 19th -century American farmhouse style pieces that blend harmoniously with comfortable upholsteries in charming prints. The interiors were executed by Nantucket House Antiques and Interior Design Studios. There are some great rooms that inspire in both furniture layout and mix of styles. All farmhouse pieces go together, whether Swedish, French or Early American. Wicker and sisal, bamboo shades and a classic palette make this home elegant but also fun.  The living room, family room and kitchen in particular have stolen my heart…

    So gorgeous. I miss Nantucket. It’s a long way from CA! Coincidentally I just met a designer yesterday who lived on Nantucket for 16 years. Her husband is a builder there. Now she splits her time between Santa Barbara and Nantucket. We had a lot in common! 😉

    So beautiful! I’ve been wanting to spray paint our cabin wicker that we “inherited” black and some of these pictures just inspired me to do it 🙂
