How To Do New England Nautical

Spring has arrived here in New England! Many coastal home owners are busy preparing their homes for the Summer season. Here are a few of my favorite coastal inspired interiors. I hope you find some inspiration too, and remember Ally Maloney Interior Design is here to help you design your coastal home!

Nantucket Nautical: Soft hues, linen fabrics and ocean artifacts create a cool, casual living room that iterates the Nantucket way of life.

Cape Cod Coastal: Dress up an arm chair with a crisp, bold pattern and add framed prints to dress up white walls.

Newport Nautical: Newport is a historic town, with a mix of new and old construction, but traditional design is always the commonality. This dining room is a great blend of traditional architecture and furniture with coastal style lighting and decor.

The Hamptons: A Summer destination for Manhattanites. These two rooms blend elegance and nautical charm, creating fashionable spaces for an Hamptons beach home. This living room features the same fabric as the 'Cape Cod Coastal' retreat pictured above, but when paired with vibrant pink and bold black it takes on a more formal, chic feel and creates a fabulous space to host a Hamptons house party. And what home would be complete for entertaining without a showstopping powder room? Shown below, this powder room features mother of pearl tile and a one of a kind clam shell bowl sink.

Westport, Connecticut Coastal: For those escaping the city heat by retreating to the Connecticut coastline, consider creating a casual and serene space by sticking with sades of white and simple forms and lines.
