• Nantucket Cottage Creates Serenity for a Family

    Posted on October 16, 2012 by in Beach Home Tours

    The more Nantucket home tours that we view, the more we want to visit this region filled with serenity.  Boston Magazine recently featured a beach home which is an escape and retreat for the owner’s throughout the year.   Although relatively new, the home boasts exposed studs and rough-hewn oak rafters which provide an old beach cottage feel.

    The owner wanted a contemporary, upscale yet beachy and comfortable interior.  With a family of four, the finishes and fabrics had to hold up!  Just walk through the living room doors (shown above) and beyond the lawn is the ocean.


    A custom boat-shaped bar provides casual elegance.

    Mosiac tile with white cabinetry have created a kitchen that just begs to be used!

    One of our favorite touches is the handpainted bar top by Nantucket artist Mary Emery.

    “We enjoy the buzz of people in-season, but also like the peace of the off-season,” the wife says.

    The closet door is made from driftwood.

    Monogrammed Arm Chairs are a lovely touch…
