Every year during my summer in Nantucket I frequent the Nantucket Historical Association's Antique and Design Show. This year the show added an interesting highlight. Featured under a tent at the entrance, was a collection of designed tablescapes. Happy to be in the company of other Nantucket designers and shop owners, my table featured the colors and inspiration of the 2014 J. Butler Collection.
Our 16th season on Nantucket has officially begun...our doors opened to the early bird customers on June 13. The collection, "Shades from Another Isle -- Bermuda" looks fabulous in our corner boutique location.
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".
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.
