Blue and White Entry

It goes without saying that we looooove the beach and we’d pretty much live anywhere (a shack or hut will do!) as long as there was a water view and sand to sink our toes in.  And we’d be even more delighted if this house happened to be on Nantucket and designed by Markham Roberts!

While the rough shores of this Massachusetts island are known more for their dunes and grasses, a garden of flowering blooms is brought indoors with the prevalent use of botanical fabrics and artwork.

Don’t let the wood walls and chalky painted finishes fool you – this house was newly built by the owner after she realized that the older home she purchased was not perfect.  To get that lived-in look, she delivered a lifetime of belongings complemented by fabulous auction finds into Roberts’ eager hands and together they created a warm and welcoming home.

Needless to say, our inspiration board is now covered with images from this project in hopes that some day we’ll have a home on the beach to call our own!

Who doesn’t love blue and white in the summer months?  We know it’s a favorite color combination for many bloggers (ahem… Tina, Jeanne and Julie you know who you are!) and we have to admit, it’s one of ours, too.  Inside or out, blue hues work beautifully with crisp, clean whites.  With one of us packing her bags for some fun in the sun in the south of France, we thought we’d send her off with some goodies for the beach…
