Home on Nantucket

Three sisters share this house by the sea on Nantucket. J. Gwynne Thorsen was in charge of the architectural and interior design. Unfortunately there are not many photographs of the interiors so these will have to do.

The entrance façade features a pergola covered with New Dawn roses.

An oil by Ben Austrian, which introduces the living room’s rabbit theme, hangs above the mantel.

Displayed in the bedroom of the upstairs tern suite are 18th- and 19th-century dog portraits.

The red hummingbird suite on the second floor opens to a private balcony. A pair of hand-colored 18th-century botanical prints are near the banquette.

Dutch doors allow a view from the kitchen, at the south, through the house to the ocean.

Antique kismos chairs around the dining table.

  1. Bellisima Kifus!

  2. Just lovely. I am left wanting to see every nook and cranny of the interior and exterior of that house.
