This Nantucket beach house maintains the integrity of the region's shingle style architecture while providing a young family with a fresh space that evokes the relaxation of a summer retreat. The balance of modern and traditional design elements creates a harmonious backdrop for an expert mix of artisan woodwork and cozy upholstery throughout. Exposed ceiling beams and hardwood floors provide rhythm and unity from one room to the next, while vintage-style light fixtures and custom textiles add a touch of warmth. A sense of subtlety is achieved by juxtaposing the home’s soft palette of neutrals, blues, and greens with the surrounding landscape of sand and sky.
