Nantucket Beach Style

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.

  1. I love this home. The kitchen especially would be my dream kitchen. Beautiful.

    1. The kitchen is stunning and the carrera marble is gorgeous. I am replacing my kitchen and plan a similar style to this one, although I will probably go for a man made stone bench top as marble can stain easily. Thank you for taking time to comment :)

  2. Thanks Camille for taking time to comment, it is a lovely home I couldn't resist sharing.
