I just love the coast, don’t you? The sand, the sun, the breeze, the colors, the relaxed atmosphere… What’s not to live?! Being a New Englander living in the South, I am torn. The New England coast is gorgeous and relaxed. It doesn’t get too hot (although it can), humidity is fairly low, and there is just an atmosphere that I can’t explain. But I do think that Nantucket, off the coast of Massachusetts, really exemplifies that atmosphere.
I just felt the need to lighten and brighten up my new house, perhaps it is the time of year, and I looked to this little island for some inspiration.

You can even rent this one!
Are you feeling inspired?! I am! The light and bright rooms, but not totally white. Little bursts of color here and there. Antiques mixed with comfy, upholstered pieces. Traditional yet comfortable. That is the look I am going for. Next stop, the fabric store, oh and the paint store to pick up some samples, and the….. I better stop now!
