Nautical Love

With July coming to a close, the summer feels like it is already over! But luckily, in a few weeks I am heading to Nantucket, my all time favorite place!  My family and I have been going every summer now for the past 16 years and it is always the highlight of all of our summers.  As I'm counting down the days waiting to be on island, I can just dream about being there and what makes it so great, all things nautical.  There is nothing better in my opinion than a yard full of hydrangeas, nautical stripes throughout a house, and fun accents of coral and anchors.  These qualities are what make every single inch of Nantucket so magical! 

Main Street in Nantucket aka cozy town! Always have loved this picture. 

Coral is such a great accessory in any room!

Anchor doorknob! Wow! 

What a chic bar.

Chunky stripes make any house have that great nautical feel. 

The Lobster Trap in Nantucket. One of my favorites!  

Classic Nantucket style homes.  These make me crazy happy! 

A rope staircase makes any house feel beachy and cozy! I did these steps in my daughters bedroom.  

Cozy cozy stripes 

So New England, great sailboat painting!

Classic Americana

As the 4th of July approaches I fall more in love with where I live every year.  In my opinion, nothing beats the East Coast on the 4th.  From Lobster Bakes to fireworks on the water, it's a truly idyllic time around here.  All of these fabulous celebrations though, revolve around the amazing architecture and classic Americana style of decorating.  Some homes here date back to the 1700's and that amazing history is part of my love for the interior design. 

Doesn't get better than this!

 Cannot get enough of dutch doors! 

 Ah Nantucket! My all time favorite place...dreamy
