A definitive, full-color book to help bring the style of Nantucket Island into your home. There is something essentially charming about a simple cottage surrounded by a fence covered with roses. More than 1,200 of these houses can be found on Nantucket Island. Nowhere in this country are there more charming and diverse cottages featuring small pocket gardens and window boxes than on Nantucket. To a large extent, the character of the island is reflective of these little early homes. They were originally built by and for island residents at a time when islanders didn’t require, didn’t desire, or couldn’t afford anything larger. Living small, as typified by cottage living, has become the responsible, chic, innovative, and practical wave of the immediate future. Many homeowners are rethinking their needs in regard to space, opting for more quality and less quantity of space. They know that a house is more than square footage, and a small home is one that can be infused with special details and designed to accommodate the lifestyle of its occupants. Neither size nor volume has anything to do with style and comfort. The homes and gardens featured in Nantucket Cottages and Gardens reflect classic design elements that have been embraced in the past and continue to survive in the present. Throughout this book, the cottages of Nantucket will inspire those who are building new, renovating, or decorating a small home. When the quantity of space is pared down, more money can be spent on the things that give a house character, such as built-ins, weathered wood furniture, unique art pieces, and handmade textiles, to name a few.

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.
