When I asked Jennifer if she would help me with my Nantucket Style posts, I should have realized that she probably has a book on it. Did you ever see her book collection?

You must know who I am talking about? It is my dear friend Jennifer from The Pink Pagoda
Jennifer also has an impressive following on Pinterest. If you look at some of her pins, you will know why....and now there is a picture of her, so you can see what she looks like.
I'm so happy so be here at My Crafty Home Life sharing Diamond Baratta's version of Nantucket Style with you today. When Linda asked me to do a Nantucket Style post, I immediately thought of this weekend house featured in the book Diamond Baratta Design. The clients, a Manhattan couple, have a weekend getaway on Long Island. However, Nantucket is their favorite place on earth and they wanted their house to reflect that.
No one ever accused the design duo Diamond Baratta of subtlety. They take "themey" to a whole new level. As it's so blatant, I just get over myself and enjoy the fun and color. If you've been to my blog before, you know I'm crazy for pink and blue together. There's plenty of that here, and I'm so glad to get to share.
This is a detail photo from the rug shown in the first image. Diamond Baratta is well known for designing custom rugs for clients.
I love how the quilt looks cozy/country/graphic/modern all at the same time.
See what I mean about lack of subtlety? Maybe a bit more pink and blue here than even I would do, but I like the slipcovers created for these chairs.
The mural in the entry depicts Nantucket.
The blue and white stripe upholstery with the bright pink welt on the white lacquered furniture is adorable.
Again, they are clearly not afraid of being themey. A word often used to describe their work is "exuberant." I think that's appropriate.
This kitchen is one of my favorites.
I love the idea of using tile to create a gingham look.
Linda, thank you for having me here on your incredible blog. I was thrilled to get to share some pink and blue Nantucket fun with you and your readers!
Thank you, Jennifer. You can come by anytime.
