Nantucket, a thirteen-mile-long island off the coast of Massachusetts, is more than a place-- it's a state of mind. Nantucket Style is a handsome and thorough presentation of the unique atmosphere of the historic New England island. Classic American architecture, interiors, arts and crafts, gardens, and cuisine, within an environment offering unsurpassed natural beauty, contribute to the special quality of life on Nantucket island.
Nantucket Style takes the reader on an insider's tour of over twenty-five local residences. The houses range from the exquisitely preserved eighteenth-century mansions that line Main Street to the charmingly rustic cottages that are a hallmark of towns by the sea.
Quiet, relaxed, and unspoiled, this former whaling port is a haven for artists and creative individuals whose approach to life results in striking and inviting interiors. Residents find their own personal styles within the context of the traditional New England buildings that dot the island landscape. Their design solutions are adaptable and appropriate for use by anyone whose home is a preserve of fine living.
