Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Though its name evokes the nostalgia of summertime haunts and bucolic beach living, Nantucket actually thrums with activity all year round, so it makes sense that this tribute to the island’s homes covers all the seasons. Divided into four parts-spring, summer, fall, winter-the book invites readers into 16 gracious Nantucket residences. Each of them embodies a distinct variation on the classic New England aesthetic, from "Italian Refuge" and "European Treasure" to "Patriotic Barn" and "Painted Cottage." Photographer Paul Whicheloe complements McGee’s text with keenly detailed spreads of the luxurious interiors. Some of the photographs could stand minor enhancements in brightness and contrast, and the complete absence of outside shots feels odd in a book that focuses so much upon seasons. But the homes are well chosen and the text fulfills its duty, as McGee relishes the homeowners’ diverse design interests. The addition of a few local recipes and snippets of island history also helps convey the residents’ quiet passion for their dwellings.

Format: Hardcover
Loved this book - some gorgeous homes that really gave me a lot of inspiration as I love that seaside/cottage look. Not all of the homes are decorated in an expected Nantucket style, however, which kept the pages interesting. It has beautiful photographs and some nice recipes too! If you love Nantucket or that casual, cottage/beachy design style, this is a great book for you.

The book is written in a style that warms the reader to life on Nantucket. The photographs come to life with the descriptive prose that the author uses to provide detail. A true sense of life on the island is conveyed in the book which made me want to rush to Nantucket for some R&R!

I love this book!! I purchased a copy for myself first, and then numerous for friends and colleagues of mine who regularly summer in Nantucket, and some who have only been once, and others who haven't been yet (great way to encourage them!) - the photos are gorgeous and anyone with a bit of home decor interest would be interested in this.

This is a really fantastic book filled with beautiful photos of design and collections and ideas - (especially if you, like me, grew up in Southeastern Massachusetts and live in California).
