A Traditional Summer House On Nantucket

When I think about where i would love to have  a summer home, Nantucket , would be the choice, hands down.  It is quintessential New England..The beach, salt air, the sea, the fishing and the chicness. Some of my  fondess memories have been spent on  this beautiful island. Nantucket is the peak of chic for coastal living. When I came across this home in The recent issue of Traditional home, I wanted to share it. This home blends both the traditional and coastal style.

Love the beadboard ceilings, the checked couches, the dark woods...The house is so open and airy yet cozy at the same time. So pretty!

Hello sweets! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. This is gorgeous and what I wouldn't give to have a home on Nantucket or even to visit again. I love the bathroom and that outdoor room is perfect for summer days, I can smell the salty air. :)
Have a wonderful day!

Just perfect, exactly as I imagine the quintessential vacation/beach house to be. Love the bedroom, the den bathroom and kitchen especially. Also weathered shingles do it for me everytime...beautiful!

love this home and yes Nantucket is one of the places I think of when I think of a great beach home.

I have that rug used in the outside porch area and I love it.

I'm pretty sure I could live there, no problem :) I haven't been to Nantucket yet, but I would love to someday.
