Cottages on the island of Nantucket have a way of evolving from simple summer shacks by the sea to year round escapes for a growing family. This five bedroom house has been enlarged twice and now incorporates a guest house, cabana, and pool. The family who calls this spot home requested an uncomplicated design that is crisp, airy, bright and radiant. Clear colors with a monochromatic background was just the ticket to bring a high-spirited casual feeling to these charming rooms. The house is opened well before the first daffodils blossom and stays in active use until the bitter end of the Christmas season. With a house this poetically beautiful, who would ever want to leave?
