A Quick Nantucket Trip

Instead of anything material this year, I told Andrew all I wanted for my birthday was to go back to Nantucket for a night. So on Thursday we hopped on the ferry and went over on what had to be the most beautiful day of the summer!

Of course I had to pay a visit to my favorite house on the island, Hunky Dory, which is just amazing.

“No Regrets” Purchases

When decorating a space you are bound to make mistakes. We all do. We buy things just to fill a space instead of waiting for something we really love or maybe it’s something super trendy that falls out of favor quickly.  Perhaps it’s even a paint color you no longer like seeing everyday that you once were just MAD for.  It’s so common, and designers arenot immune to making purchasing mistakes either!

But then there are things that we say “thank GOODNESS I bought that” about because you still love them years later.  I have a few purchases like that and thought I’d round them up and tell you a little about why I love them so much.  Listening to your gut seems to be a resounding tip when looking at all these decisions together! When I don’t follow my instincts, I tend to waste money on things I don’t love.

So here are my “no regrets” purchases and design decisions:

1.) My leopard stair runner.  This was a bold move and I was nervous that I would tire of it, but I haven’t! At all! Not only do I still love the look of it, the functionality is beyond awesome- it hides absolutely everything and still looks new two years later!

A Boathouse of One’s Own.

You really should go out and pick up the new House Beautiful if you don’t have one already.  It’s the small spaces issue, which in my opinion, is always one of their best every year! And in this issue one particular space made me just freak out.  It’s a tiny boat house on Nantucket designed by the Boston-based designer Gary McBournie. Let me say that this is simply the owner’s boathouse- used for entertaining after boating and sometimes to house some of the crew. They have a large house in town that they actually live in. I mean….I would be over the moon to just have this tiny house as my vacation house! This is a prime example of #lifeaintfair. :)

A Blush Bedroom

I saw this picture on Pinterest (via 1000 Layer Cake) and loved the combination of wood, white, blush and hints of navy.  To me, this is a great take on bohemian decor. Sometimes bohemian style spaces get TOO overdone and leave me looking for incense burners and Grateful Dead posters hidden somewhere (which may be your thing, but isn’t mine).  This feels like a fresh, clean slightly feminine take on that bohemian look.

So I tried to recreate it for you below! Combining some linen bedding, the same bed as above and a mix of leather, mongolian lamb, a handmade throw and brass I think it succeeds!
