Nantucket style is a sophisticated fusion of the rugged coastal landscape and the genteel refinement of its residents.

The colours of the moody Atlantic - pale sky blue or soft gray, bright white, vibrant primaries or delicate washes, accent walls and furniture in weathered white oak, or painted and repainted like the hull of a boat! Worn patinas from floors to doors, vintage lighting and area rugs. Candle sticks, old paintings & sculpted topiaries are common accents in a French Seaside look.
