Nantucket Living

By AlysEdwards | 6/22/2021

There is a certain charm to island life with shingle sided houses surrounded by bountiful hydrangeas, cobblestone streets, and the fresh ocean air. The Nantucket style is formal but doesn't sacrifice comfort. When choosing colors stick to a crisp palette of coastal blues and whites. Selecting tile such as Basic B provides a traditional white washed wood-look great for smaller spaces like entry ways, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and patios. With durability and easy care, the sand and sun will be no challenge for this porcelain plank. The Half Baked blocks are a great selection for a kitchen backsplash, fireplace surround, or shower walls, and can be left on the mesh or removed to create different patterns. To add the perfect shade of blue as an accent strip in the shower or unexpected butlers pantry floor, try the Genziana from our Abitare La Terra Collection! Sticking with the hues of blues… the range of shades in the 4x16 stained glass offer the perfect splash of color reminiscent of the ocean. Fun to use as the backsplash in a wet bar or a feature wall in a powder bath, the unique blend of each piece will have your imagination sailing away. Tailored furnishings and symmetrical layouts are keys to Nantucket style living. Furniture with straight lines, striped accent rugs, and patterned pillows can help bring your space together. Accent your space with subtle coastal pieces. A white chain setting on a coffee table and sea shells in a bowl or on the top of a stack of books are perfect nautical touches. Design your perfect seaside villa on the eastern seaboard with AlysEdwards Tile & Stone.
