The time of the year has arrived to read a good book or watch the latest Netflix series and cook hearty meals for loved ones. During these days in the Northeast, when the winds gust over 60 mph and ice blankets the harbor, we crave what brings us comfort to combat the chilly winter months.
Bringing warmth into your home can be more than building a fire and curling up with your favorite throw blanket. It is about creating a winter retreat in your own home- a warm and inviting space where you truly enjoy spending time. In every home we design, we strive to create that environment through curated spaces filled with your favorite books, floral arrangements displayed in textural vases and sentimental antiques. When your space is styled with what you love, it becomes the place you want to be.
Our designer Brooke Gherardini describes this moment when, "there is nothing better than the sense of contentment you feel, sitting on your sofa, sipping a warm beverage, surrounded by your favorite things. That to me, is creating a warm and comforting home."
The designers here at Nantucket Looms have selected a collection of items that will help you create your perfect winter retreat. They have broken out these elements into three categories: textiles, culture & sculpture.
These items, when thoughtfully paired together, will make your collections tell a story. The attention to detail in one small space can elevate an entire room and make people want to learn more.
“People come over to my house all the time and ask, ‘where is this from?’ I have a story attached to everything and why I love it, whether it was gifted to me or if I found it in my travels. These are the items that comfort us and create an environment that is specific to each of our homes.” -Brooke
You can restyle again and again, breathing new energy into every piece, showcasing them in a different way. Head Designer Stephie says, "I move my artwork and decor around all the time. I love the fact that each piece can always be reimagined. I never buy a piece for a certain space. I don’t have a specific style of art that I prefer; they are all different in their own way." Try experimenting with different pairings- old and new, modern, and antique, found and gifted- to discover which items complement each other in unexpected ways.
