Using words to describe a color is so difficult. Every word can conjure up a different image in someone's head. As I was thinking about the palette for Nantucket this year I had vivid memories of my travels toBermuda and the blue water and soft white and pink beaches. This year the collection began with a title, "Shades from Another Isle -- Bermuda".
ASPIRE Metro recently featured an article discussing how I enjoy the exciting opportunities that come from working on a home from the ground up. It starts by understanding the property and site, understanding the current times we live in and of course understanding a client and their lifestyle.
I recently returned from an exhausting but exciting week in Nantucket. It wasn't a week of sitting on the beach, playing golf and eating ice cream with my grandchildren...that fun is still to come. This week was the culmination of a vision for the J. Butler Collection for the 2013 season. The walls were prepped and painted with this year's Birch Charcoal Gray color, boxes of items I've collected all year were opened, mirrors and triptych artwork was hung, and the vision of modern clean living was completed.
Very soon the cream linen shades will be lifted, the truck will be unloaded and another season at our Nantucket shop, the J. Butler Collection, will begin.
