Nantucket Fourth of July

My family has a tradition of spending our annual summer vacation in Sconset, Nantucket. We’ve spent the past 6 celebrations of the Fourth of July here and every time I’m here I am filled with inspiration and admiration towards the history of this island. Nantucket has a special pride and love of Independence Day and its annual water fight on Main Street between kids and fireman has become a must for my family. We enjoy taking long bike rides throughout the island and along the beach while soaking in the patriotic store displays and scenic views. Almost every house has a full-size American flag, and it seems that no matter where you turn you can spot the Red, White and Blue colors proudly displayed.

Here is a look at a few photos I’ve taken so far on our trip.

About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
