Nantucket Treasure

One of the loveliest magazines I read is New England Home.

 I am crazy about the Nantucket home of Lee Beirly and Christopher Drake in the July/August issue. This talented duo has paired sleek, contemporary design with fabulous antiques and folk art. I love the strength of the black and white striped rug, the zebra pillows and a little punch of color here and there.

Here are some of my favorites views of the house, and here is a link if you would like to read the entire article. It is worth your time to read it, and to see more stunning images of this coastal home.

All of these gorgeous images Michael Partenio, New England Magazine


  1. One more time - blogspot being testy...
    Just great!
    The living room reminds me of Joni's family room.
    Nice to see something from a regional magazine I don't get.
    Thanks for sharing.
    xo xo

  2. Visual Vamp - I know, those pillows on the white sofa remind me of her living room, too. Usually, I try not to just take photos straight from magazines, especially current ones, but I thought this one would be good because it is so specifically regional and not everyone sees it. It is a gorgeous magazine if you are looking for a new one to check out!

  3. Today's our first rainy day on the Cape so you've just given me inspiration for a magazine to check out. No newsstand here in Woods Hole but I know when we head out to Chatham I'll be sure to find this mag. Hope you're having fun in Boston. Michele

  5. I love the look of this home and did I mention I love the new look of your blog?
