A Nantucket Beach Nest

The June 2013 issue of Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Magazine  features a new Dujardin-designed home on Nantucket!  Written by Jamie Marshall and photographed by longtime Dujardin friend Terry Pommet, the home is beautifully presented beginning on page 64.


We created interiors with bright splashes of blue and Hermes orange in this six-bedroom, shingle -style cottage for a young family with two teenage daughters.  A short fifteen-minute walk to town, the new home was customized by Dujardin Design Associates from the studs up, including exquisite details such as the wood floor in the entry hall with its hand-painted Harlequin pattern. The rattan-wrapped dresser and table in the foyer are meant to evoke the Breakers in Palm Beach, circa 1950s.

Senior Designer Price Connors created custom built-ins and mahogany topped cabinets for easy storage throughout the home, including hideaway space in the bright and airy bedrooms.

The color palette is crisp and clean, with most walls painted white or ivory with bright white trim. We added interest with pops of color, such as this nautical rope border!

Color continues into all the bedrooms, including this lilac-themed room!

And this blue beauty!

There’s an oriental influence in the dining room, with a pagoda-shaped tole chandelier above the glass dining table.  Gothic backed rattan dining chairs and a rattan bar cart add a classic touch.

The patio and garden continue the colorful palette, offering another glorious space to enjoy  summer on Nantucket.
