On the Nantucket Shore...
With only a year left in the US, I mentioned that the bucket list is starting to get drawn up. And I've always wanted to see the classic Northeast American sea-shore....Nantucket...Cape Cod...Newport...Martha's Vineyard...even the Hamptons. I've never gotten an opportunity to see any of those but is there anything more classic americana (exotic america?) for the summer?
We're going to see if we can squeeze something in this year - it turns out that a lot of these places aren't necessarily to easy to get too if you only have a weekend (even a long one) to work with. I guess it keeps the short-term interlopers out, and there is something to be said for that.
Nantucket is close to the top of that list and I remembered this great house featured in Elle Decor about a year ago. While not necessarily everything is to my taste, they did such a beautiful job combining very modern interiors with a very classic house. I love when peope show that a mix is best. Also, to add to my list of things I'd like "if I ever have a beach house"...the house has to have a name. Definitely. And a road that leads out to the ocean...Definitely.
