A Nantucket Summer Home

I’ve got cottages and summer homes on the brain as the cottage season here officially kicks off this weekend. Today I am sharing with you a Nantucket home that was originally built in 1747 and has recently restored by it’s architect owners as a getaway for themselves and their four boys.

Check it out:

I love the mix of textures and the muted colour scheme. Am a particular fan of the mosaic tile in the bathroom and the exposed timbers throughout the second floor.

What do you think?
