Curb Appeal, Nantucket Style

Beautiful homes, beaches, a charming historic downtown and darling shops make Nantucket my new favorite summer destination.

This summer, the Regan’s took a family vacation (a first for us all!) and we could not have picked a better location. Nantucket is filled with sights to see, things to do and beaches to relax or catch a wave. One of my favorite things about exploring this island were style of the homes. Let’s talk curb appeal!

Starting with my favorite thing…..

the Window Boxes

The stunning window boxes overflowing with flowers are a Nantucket staple found throughout homes and shops. As you stroll through town and nearby homes, you’ll find plenty of roses, English ivy, petunias, and geraniums draping over the window boxes beautifully.

Rose arches (this was in Siasconset, a short drive from town, where roses grow on cottages by the beach – heavenly!).

Nantucket Style

This island is full of rich history and architecture which has developed over time. Once a bustling whaling town, you can still find glimpses of what the town was like in the 17th and 18th century when Nantucket was the whaling capital.

Nantucket Whaling Museum | Shining on Design

The views (especially from the rooftop of the Whaling museum!) were incredible. I loved shopping by the harbor, walking through town and exploring the history and beauty of Nantucket. More about an amazing local shop that is a great source for home decor will be on the blog shortly!

This was a trip to remember and I am grateful to have experienced such a wonderful place with the Regan family. A HUGE than you to my mother-in-law, Chris, for putting together this vacation! Same time next year?!
