Nantucket Style Chic Design Inspiration & House Exteriors!

A dreamy boutique hotel in Nantucket (I’ve never been!) is packed with charming interior design details to consider. Lovers of New England homes and Nantucket Style Chic Design Inspiration are bound to be pleased with this parade of design inspiration!

For me, the design story of this chic, hip, and historic Nantucket hotel is about simple yet thoughtful details. Therefore, let’s begin with one of the smaller ones. In lieu of a plastic “please make up this room” placard, notice the sweetly satin pennant for a guestroom door knob. In my book, it is such careful consideration and customization of such features that sets a project like Greydon House apart.

The owners worked with Cory Schifler of Urchin Workshop to design cheeky accessories for the space, including these doorknob flags—a creative take on “Please make up this room.”

Not that such masterfully executed details come cheap. Let’s say one would care to check in to the Greydon in early August. One night would set one back 4-figures, and Ms. Frugal would rather save her pennies for the next fixer upper. So this won’t be one of those typical “let’s put this one on the bucket list” ditties as much as:

Let’s celebrate the summer chic design in this Nantucket beauty.

Roman and Williams custom-designed the hotel’s beds (topped with block-printed linens by John Robshaw) and lighting fixtures. Light fixtures with pulleys, weights, and loops hark back to mechanisms on old clocks and lamps. Vintage seascape paintings are scattered around. Much of the furniture is either vintage or custom.

John Robshaw provided the block printed linens for the beds, and he has been a favorite with Hello Lovely readers for years!

The custom nautical scenes on the bathroom tiles were hand-painted in Portugal and put together on-site like a puzzle.

Showers are lined in maritime scenes made of Portuguese tiles, and sconces on the eaves have an air of recycled industrial corridor lights. The boxy and unpainted sink vanities, reminiscent of 19th-century farmhouse washstands, leave glossy pipes exposed.

Bathrooms feature Waterworks brass fixtures, custom cabinets with honed marble countertops, and Aesop bath products.

Guests can admire jars of beach finds and fill journals with travel notes at an unpretentious desk in weathered dark paint and a red-stained chair—the kind of gentle mismatch that seafarers would have created out of heirlooms and purchases.

The dining room’s sea-blue walls lend it a modern New England tavern feel. The menu from executive chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware, an alum of Charlie Palmer’s Michelin-starred Aureole, reflects the same sensibility, incorporating local organic produce from landscape designer Marty McGowan’s Pumpkin Pond Farm.

Well-collected accessories—rough-hewn pottery, nautical artwork, brass candlesticks—give the hotel a lived-in vibe.

A chinoiserie bar cabinet in the dining room adds colorful contrast—and a well-traveled flair.

In the bar’s lounge, flame-stitch-covered sofas make an unexpected counterpoint to a salon-style display of nautical artwork, including framed wool-stitched scenes, or “sailor’s woolies,” found at Nantucket antiques shops.

New York-based Roman and Williams designed Greydon House with a fictional whaling captain in mind—a wealthy character who picked up artworks, books, and furniture on his far-flung voyages. “They knew what we wanted to create hadn’t been created before and so it needed a story,” says Greydon House co-owner Alexander Leventhal.

    True American style for the Fourth. Have always desired to take a trip to Nantucket. Ironically, Hubby is from New England, but visiting family there is a different type of trip, not allowing enough time to venture far from the mother ship. Hope to get to Nantucket and to other charming destinations “up-East” sometime in the near future. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy Fourth, Michele. Hope that your heart is lighter and a happy song is running through your mind. You are in my prayers.
