Curate your Nantucket Summer

As the warm breeze sweeps across Nantucket, it’s time to refresh your living space for the summer. At Nantucket Looms, we believe that the essence of a perfect summer home lies in the details. Here’s a guide to the essential elements of design to focus on when creating your summer sanctuary.

Handwoven Textiles: The Heart of Summer Comfort

Handwoven textiles offer a blend of tradition, craftsmanship, and comfort. Our throws and blankets are perfect for cool summer evenings, whether you’re lounging on the porch or hosting an outdoor gathering. The intricate patterns and natural fibers add a tactile appeal and a sense of artistry to your space. Layer these textiles on sofas, chairs, or as tablecloths to bring warmth and texture into your home.

Local Artwork: Capturing the Spirit of Nantucket

Incorporating local artwork celebrates the unique culture and landscapes of Nantucket. Whether it’s a watercolor painting of the island’s iconic lighthouses or a handcrafted sculpture, local art pieces add a personal touch to your home. Display these prominently in your living room or entryway to make a lasting impression and evoke the spirit of the island.

Decorative Accents: Adding Personality and Charm

Decorative accents like handcrafted vases, intricately designed baskets, and elegant candle holders are the finishing touches that bring personality and charm to your summer home. A woven basket filled with fresh flowers or coastal-themed candles can instantly brighten up the room and evoke a beachside retreat.

Smart Storage: Stylish Organization

Smart storage solutions like decorative boxes and trays offer both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Use beautifully designed boxes to store summer essentials like sunscreen and beach towels, keeping them within easy reach but out of sight. Trays can organize smaller items on your coffee table or vanity, adding elegance while maintaining order.

Soft Pillows: Comfort and Style

Soft, inviting pillows are a versatile element of design that can instantly transform a room. Choose pillows in light, airy fabrics and vibrant summer colors to add freshness to your sofas and chairs. Mix and match sizes, patterns, and textures to create a cozy and visually appealing arrangement.
