How about a beach trip? Let’s pack up the suitcases, load up the car and head for Nantucket on this gorgeous spring day!
You know you’re going to love how a beach home is decorated inside when the decor has been done by a designer whose company is named Beach Glass Designs…love that name!
Jackie, the designer behind Beach Glass Designs created the interior design for this Nantucket home and it’s wonderful!
Notice how the living room doesn’t look “decorated.” Instead, it looks as if pieces were collected over time.
Jackie used silver trophies in the living room decor and I love that touch of glam and sparkle they add to the room.
In another room, a trophy was used for icing down cool drinks. Genius idea! I was looking at the coffee table and it reminded me of a table I’ve seen in dark brown wood tones. I wonder if this one was painted. If you have an older table that’s not in the greatest of shape and not an antique, and it’s out of style or doesn’t work with your beach house decor, try painting it for a fresh look.
Here’s a broader view of this room. This may be the living room and the first room we saw (visible through the open doorway) may be a TV room or den. I’ve always loved buffalo check curtains in neutral tones. I also love that style fabric on chairs. The tall wainscoting looks so great in this space, doesn’t it?
The kitchen in this home is white with blue accents, one of my all time favorite color combinations. If one ever got tired of blue it would be easy to change out the accent pieces (like the canisters) to a different color. Notice the beadboard ceiling.
I love the kitchen, but it was these lanterns that knocked my socks off! Are they not gorgeous?! I love them so much! I could never get tired of blue and white decor. It’s so beautiful and completely timeless. This kitchen will feel current and up-to-date ten years from now!
Love the wide nautical, navy stripes on the dining room draperies. Notice the fullness of the drapery fabric. That extra bit of fullness gives the curtains an over-the-top custom feel. Don’t skimp on the fabric when planning your draperies. If there’s space on either side of the window and your budget can handle it, go lush and make those draperies super full.
Notice how Jackie mixes somewhat formal pieces like the Federal mirror and beautiful brass lamps with more rustic pieces like the table and the chairs. If you like the chairs, I found some that look similar at Overstock except the bottom half is open. I won’t link to them here, but they are called “Ira Chairs” and are made from something called abaca, so just search for that name at Overstock if you like these. I really like how Jackie used different chairs at the ends of the table…so much more interesting to mix it up a bit.
Ever thought of using damask wallpaper in a bathroom? This has me seriously considering it for my upstairs hall bath. Love how this looks and I really like it paired with the beadboard. It’s sophisticated and casual, all at the same time.
Let’s head upstairs and check out the bedrooms. When I saw this striped runner, I was thinking how practical the color was for a high-traffic area like stairs.
Such a beautiful color for the walls in this blue and white bedroom. The room feels so airy and open. Notice the basket for storing towels.
Wondering how to get to the widow’s walk we saw in the first picture of this post? Here it is! I would climb up there in a skinny minute to soak up those views! 🙂
Such a cute, cute bedroom for a beach house! Great storage underneath the beds!
