I came across this lovely Nantucket beach house and instantly fell in love with everything about it.

There’s a lot of great New England beach house style inspiration to be found here.

For starters, I’m so drawn to this home’s over all warmth and inherent charm.

These are the exact qualities I’m hoping our own beach house will have when it’s done…someday.

Each room has so many little details and special touches.

According to designer Katie Martinez, this home was inspired by the owner’s childhood summers spent in New England.

I mean, how great is the idea of incorporating happy memories right into the interior design of a home?

This sounds so perfect to me.

Integral to most New England beach houses is a sense of traditional style.

The charming framed heirloom quilt below, instantly reminded me of this popular post I did on framing special keepsake items!

If you’re like me and can never get enough of these traditional New England homes, check out this beautiful book!

    okay… it’s not an “heirloom quilt” it’s a suzani, an embroidered tapestry from Central Asia… but what a beautiful way of displaying a suzani!
