Island Living

Jane Beiles Photography – Design by Kathleen Hay of Kathleen Hay Designs

 

Nantucket is home to so many awesome things and people. One of our favorite authors, Elin Hilderbrand. One of our favorite hotels, The Wauwinet. And one of our favorite designers, Kathleen Hay. Jane Beiles doesn’t live in Nantucket, but she photographs there, so we’ll give her a favorite Nantucket photographer shout out anyway!

 

Island living - kitchen

 

We can’t get enough of that classic New England vibe that seems to be everything exactly when you need it.

You know, warm and cozy and soothing during the cold winter months, like now.

But full of that quintessential island style that makes it also feel like summer vacation. You know, dream summer vacation.

But what we think we love most about this Nantucket beauty is the unexpected touches.

The right artistic touches, 

 

 

Plus everything you need to get into vacation mode create the perfect retreat for year-long living, summer relaxation and everything in between. 

 

 

An indoor/outdoor shower? Yes, please!

And dining al fresco has never looked so good. 

 

 

This classic New England beauty hits all the high notes of Nantucket style.

 

 

And is exactly the kind of place we’d like to stay awhile. We hope you’ll come too!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love it when you stop by!

What My Big Fat Happy Life is saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“Slightly South of Simple has fantastic characters, a wonderful setting on the ocean in Georgia, and an engaging plot.  This is the first book in her new trilogy… This is a wonderful book!  I fell in love with the setting and the characters.  Kristy did a great job of holding my interest throughout the book and I am excited to continue reading the series in the coming months.” –Paris, My Big Fat Happy Life

What People are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Bestselling author Cassandra King
