After touring Sarah’s lovely island cottage yesterday, it’s time to share a favorite book filled with beautiful homes and gardens on another well-loved island.
In the BNOTP Library: Nantucket: Gardens and Houses
Author: Virginia Scott Heard
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Great photography with tons of close-ups. Plenty of antiques and nautical, ship-themed art, paintings, collectibles throughout the book. Where else would you find a ship’s figurehead in the garden! 🙂
- This book is filled with gorgeous pictures of the gardens and homes in Nantucket. It’s almost like a pictorial tour with detailed captions and information about what you’re seeing. Both Nantucket and Cape Cod are on my bucket list and this book makes me want to go there right now.
- One of the best parts of a book like this is you get to see parts of Nantucket you would never get to see even if you visited in person. I love the hidden gardens and the peeks inside the homes. Nantucket is truly a special place if it’s anything like this book portrays.
