Hope Chest ‘Sconset Store

When it comes to matters of design, I freely admit to lacking any sort of vision. When I hear people talk about their renovation plans after buying a home, I completely tune out.

Madaket Memories

Sitting atop a windswept dune on Nantucket’s west end is a house that defies the widely-held standard of a Nantucket house. Featuring a sleek and modern interior with walls of windows, it doesn’t quite conform to what so many of us envision when we think of an island home. But that cutting..... Read more


One of the joys of a Nantucket summer is the gathering of family and friends, enjoying time together and savoring an unforgettable meal. Fresh fish from the oceans that surround us, vegetables grown at one of the local farms, and a bottle of wine to share with those we love. When we all get.... Read more
