I spotted a lovely Nantucket beach home and fell in love with its interesting mix of contemporary and traditional style.
A project by Jonathan Raith & Company and photographed by Nantucket Architectural Photography. The exterior of this coastal cottage is typical of beach homes in the Nantucket region. Inside however, although the home has traditional sarked walls and beamed ceilings which portray the Nantucket look, the interior designer has approached this project in a contemporary style. Combining textures such as linen, leather and steel, the overall look is modern yet it still retains the character so typical to homes in this region. I think it is a wonderful blend of historical style architecture and modern furnishing.
Jonathan Raith & Company are Boston builders, if you like their style then you may also enjoy another one of their beach front projects, just as delightful....view here.
