Nantucket Style


Nantucket Island Style



Even though summer just ended, I’ve already started thinking about next summer. 

This coming July, Mr. Zhush and I will be kid free and fancy free…for the first time in nearly fifteen years!

While I know I’ll be missing my kiddos, I love the idea of a quick trip up to Nantucket.

We’ve both been but not together. Crazily enough, the time to think about this type of vacation is now.

As a little inspiration for the Mr. (who’s still on the fence) I’m featuring this charming Nantucket home designed by Steven Gambrel

Regardless as to whether we make it to the island this summer, I’ll always love the whole chic Nantucket vibe. 

In fact, I’m hoping to add some of this sophisticated coastal style to my home…(scroll through below for some of my decor picks.)

  1. I do love Nantucket, but it is such a family place…won't it make you miss your children even more? You need to find a swanky hotel where there aren't a ton of families. And, yes, you definitely NEED to plan it now. xoxo
