Have you ever visited Nantucket? I have not but the little bit I’ve heard about it has me yearning to go. I’d love to see it during the summer but today’s book has me convinced it’s just as wonderful at Christmastime as it is during the rest of the year.
In the BNOTP Library: A Nantucket Christmas
Author: Leslie Linsley
Hardcover: 108 pages
Book Size: 8.5 x 0.5 x 10
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- The Nantucket homes featured in the book are real homes where real people live and many of the decorations are handmade. There’s lots of fresh greenery and rooms glowing in firelight and candlelight. This is definitely a “feel-good” kind of book, the perfect kind to read while curled up under a warm throw, hot chocolate in hand.
- Photography is wonderful with lots of great close-up views. It’s impossible to read this book and not come away with some great ideas for decorating at Christmas. I loved seeing all the beautiful Nantucket baskets on display, too.
- There’s a great mix of homes featured in the book from traditional homes with that Colonial Williamsburg feel to adorable cottages. There are also a few recipes mixed in throughout the book.
Update: I just noticed that the preview at Amazon is not great (as usual) and mostly shows pics from the chapter called A Christmas Stroll Around Nantucket. This book includes lots of pictures taken inside the homes. I don’t know if the preview pages at Amazon are computer selected or what the process is they use for that, but they almost never give an accurate depiction of a design book or any book that’s pictures intense.
