Nantucket Cottage Charm in a Southern California Home

Your home should reflect what you love, no matter where you live! The owners of this Southern California home followed that very motto.

Nantucket cottage style dining room
They love the charm of a Nantucket Cottage and went for it, with the help of Designer Darci Goodman. White wainscotting, sunny yellow, a wood table made by a craftsman and a sign that spells it out.

A gorgeous lighthouse that was custom made for this niche.

hand painted tiles on fireplace
The hand painted tiles on the fireplace depict a Nantucket beach scene. Two vintage bathing beauties from the homeowners collection grace the mantel. And there must be a "Surf Rider" in the family!

beach arrow sign
I love Beach Signs -they point in the direction I want to go!

Nantucket style living room
The red sofa was custom made for the space.

custom made draperies white and blue
So were the draperies.

Another sign to remind you of the beach.

But what happened here? Looks like "Surf Rider" needed a room with a California vibe!

And in front of the house, Curb Appeal with whimsical wood signs. California and Nantucket united!
