A Seaside Stage – By Nantucket Looms


Nantucket Looms COO and lead designer Stephanie Hall and island-based design consultant Elisa Allen are no strangers to the business of staging a house to help sweeten a sale: every year, the two collaborate on at least two or three projects. Their most recent, a 3500 square foot, newly constructed, five bedroom house on the outskirts of Nantucket Island’s revered historic district, speaks to the success of their signature style: not only did Hall and Allen help bring in a buyer within the month, but the new owners (who had purchased the property furnished) hired them to incorporate some of their own accent pieces to the exquisitely decorated interior. With the exception of the wall colors – which had already been determined when they came on board – the partners were pretty much given free rein by the broker/owner. The 12-week deadline was tight, but doable.

With a fireplace as the focal point in the living room, Hall and Allen started with a contemporary-style skirted sofa in a crisp white duck. They arranged a matching armchair with pewter nail head detailing and a cozy lounger in a subtle print around the coffee table. We love how the dark metal, chain-link base of the glass topped table picks up the rich baseboard color!

Three organic root cubes serve as the coffee table in the sunroom, marrying the white and off-white color scheme played out in this room. A console with a dark, gracefully curved base draws the eye around the room and creates a pleasing balance: it is topped with hand-blown glass orbs, clear vases of varying heights and two slender table lamps. “We were so pleased with the end result,” reflected Hall. “As with any staging project, the goal is to let the architectural details of the house shine through and to use fabrics and colors that pay homage to those details: we think we met that goal.”
