Timeless Design: Nantucket

The design collaboration of Elisa Allen and Matt MacEachern featured in New England Home caught my eye as I dream about summer vacations and the quaint villages of New England. If you have been to Nantucket you already know what a treasure it is sitting among the islands of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.



This home combines classic design choices with coastal inspiration and fabulous lighting. Natural materials and a neutral palette are used throughout to allow the natural surroundings to connect to the interior.



Swooning over these lanterns and how they relate to reclaimed lumber floors instantly adding rustic charm and character to the space. I am also a huge fan of built-in banquets and their cozy feel and functionality.


A bright, white kitchen with careera marble, a wood top island and high-end appliances are almost a given in a classic treasure like this. Large scale, industrial inspired lighting are the perfect choice to create a wow factor in the kitchen.



The bathroom design follows the same design concept of selecting timeless materials combining them with a classic black and white color palette. Below, the bedroom feels slightly more organic with wood tones and greens but is still timeless.



I hope you have enjoyed the tour and leave you with a final image of Nantucket featuring its natural beauty and charm. Let us know about your adventures in Nantucket, we would love to hear about them.

    I really like the infusion of natural color wood throughout this coastal home. Mixed with the white palette it gives this home a warm feeling. Nantucket is wonderful.
