Trudy Dujardin owns a Nantucket Fisherman’s Cottage and is an interior designer who has devoted most of her life to finding ways to live lightly and gently upon our treasured earth. Trudy shared, “My clients call my lifestyle design signature: eco-elegance.” We call it fabulous!
Trudy’s summer home is located on the western tip of Nantucket and was featured in the April issue of Traditional Home Magazine. In case you missed this stunning cottage we thought we’d bring it to your attention.
The home’s cedar-shingled exterior offers a roof walk accessed by a ladder from the second-level bedroom. Our favorite space is the tranquil master bedroom which features “dreamy hues of sea glass, accented with warm gold to reflect the beaches outside.” The screened in porch is pretty amazing too!

“My husband Frank and I fell in love with this older home in Madaket, near the most beautiful beach on the island, and began a renovation project to make this house perfect for relaxed summer living. I consider it a blessing to live in a house that’s just big enough: big enough to invite friends and family to join us for lazy weekends, and small enough to be manageable. I call it my new “cottage living” phase of life.”
The Living Room features a traditional nautical feel.
The library offers not only a comfortable place to read, but to get a bit of work done.
The guest bedroom is a fun space with nautical details and brightly colored sand buckets.
There’s even a little nautical sitting area in the guest room featuring a fabulous framed swimsuit!
Seaglass hues keep the Master Bedroom tranquil and serene. I think I could sleep here for days on end.
So let’s hear your thoughts on this beautiful Nantucket cottage? There are many elements which I could certainly live with! Want to learn more about this home? Visit Traditional Home Magazine.
