Nantucket Beach House on House Of Turquoise

Boston and Nantucket-based interior designer Nancy Serafini worked with architect Tom Catalano to renovate her family’s beloved Nantucket home–captured beautifully here by photographer Michael Partenio and stylist Stacy Kunstel. I love the sophisticated take on relaxed weekend living, with mostly neutral spaces brought to life with layers of pattern and a range of sea-inspired blue hues. And despite the size (and 17-foot cathedral ceilings!) the home feels warm and cozy thanks to tons of texture and architectural charm. The reclaimed chestnut floors are my favorite! There’s still more to see…visit Traditional Home to read all about the home, learn sources, and finish your tour! (New England Home has an article with more pics too!)
