I didn’t want to bombard you with tons of photos in the last post on Nantucket, so I decided to split it into two parts. As I said before, the homes are breathtaking. I really do believe they speak for themselves, almost in the same way Friday does: relax, sit back, and enjoy. Shouldn’t every home feel like a Friday? Lots of hard work, but in the end it is a complete oasis (and in most cases, totally worth the stress).
Welcome to the weekend.
*While it is the weekend, it is also a day we (the whole world) will never forget. I couldn’t think of a more patriotic place to commemorate a sad day in our history. God Bless America!
Flowers and white picket fences are abundant on every corner.
Distressed shingles with a distressed blue door. A different combination with the more cream colored fence.
The window boxes in town are spectacular.
A high gloss gray clapboard house. I find it so interesting to see clapboard all in high gloss (sometimes I feel high gloss is better reserved for doors or a den).
So, I peaked through that side window only to find the most gorgeous hand painted blue and white wallpaper. I would show you, but I feel that may make me a borderline wallpaper stalker. 🙂
Urns flanking the door.
It is hard to tell in this picture, but it is a Nantucket style basket on the door. A nice local flavor to an entry.
Espalier growing up the side of this shingle style home.
A shuttered door.
A beautiful side lawn.
Look at that architecture.
What a gate! A perfect fit for a perfect placement.
