Light & Airy…with Loft!

Light & Airy…with Loft!

    The Union Street project we completed this summer included two condominiums with similar floor plans, with the exception that the Upper Unit had a terrific loft that was perfect for both a bedroom and a library.   We imagined the lucky future owner of this beautiful, contemporary space loving the combination of creams […]


Framing Begins!

Framing Begins!

  As the winter kicked in, so did the framing on Blackberry  … nearly a year ago today.     The framing moved along quickly, thankfully, despite some very cold and blustery months on Nantucket.   My sons enjoyed the make-shift playground on our weekend visits to see the progress!  We saved all the old […]


Union Street Project Unveiled!

Union Street Project Unveiled!

I’m so happy to finally share photos of the finished interiors of the Union Street Nantucket project.  After months of designing and planning and selecting and packing (and hand-wringing), we installed the furniture into two beautifully renovated condominiums in the historic district of Nantucket. For the unit shown here, I selected a combination of indigos and […]


Blackberry Project Begins …

Blackberry Project Begins …

The project to restore and renovate Blackberry began earlier this year with a bang!  Loud dump trucks and excavators took the first (painful) steps of removing the old kitchen which wasn’t in the best of shape. Little did we know at the time that the foundation underneath it was even worse off and required a complete overhaul. […]


Red & Indigo Color Crush

Red & Indigo Color Crush

The Studio was abuzz all summer with all kinds of new projects from product and print design to interior design for two Nantucket properties.  For one of the properties, I started with a clean palette of whites, creams and grays, then added deep reds and indigos for a rich, global feeling. Using pillows, throws, footstools […]


Introducing “Blackberry”

Introducing “Blackberry”

Introducing “Blackberry” … our (new?!) century-and-a-half old home in the Historic District of Nantucket!  We fell in love with this exceedingly tall yet perfectly hidden sleeper a year ago for lots of  reasons, not least because it sits quietly at the end of a long and narrow driveway that has its own address:  One Blackberry […]


A New Color Crush and New Venture

A New Color Crush and New Venture

The past year has been an incredible one for our Design Studio.  With dozens of new clients and hundreds of new projects and opportunities, we’ve been gratefully overwhelmed with how well our approach to design and color has been welcomed in the industry. Of all the amazing opportunities that have come our way this year, […]


Plums & Purple

Plums & Purple

Inspiration for new artwork often originates with a simple color.  Last summer, I was struck by a beautiful plummy purple sky I saw at sunset while in Wauwinet, a gorgeous north- and west-facing beach on Nantucket.  Looking out over Nantucket Bay, Wauwinet virtually guarantees incredible color combinations at sunset. This color discovery lead to a […]


A Favorite Nantucket Artist

A Favorite Nantucket Artist

Katie Trinkle Legge is a favorite Nantucket artist of mine for her vivid, playful use of color and her slightly abstract still life style.
