I Want To Go To There: Greydon House

I have been patiently (ok, not patiently) for the opening of Nantucket’s newest boutique hotel Greydon House for months now. I’d seen sneak peeks and it looked to be right up my design alley.  And now that it’s open and the interior pictures have been circulating I’m delighted to say HOLY SH*T I’M FREAKING OUT.

This place is perfection. Total, complete perfection. Designed by the famous Roman & Williams (architecture by Emeritus Development– also fantastic), the interiors could not be more on target with the classically preppy look full of antiques and yet with modern touches.  I think this is a magical project and I am counting the months until I can go spend a weekend here (I tried booking a room for Stroll a couple days ago and that was hilarious because of course every room on the island is already booked, especially these.)

Here’s a peek at the fabulousness that is abound at Greydon House:


How charming- this was a doctor’s office building in years past.


The logo and signage is so on point.





Adorable. Just adorable.  I feel more relaxed already just looking at these rooms!


Oh, and there is a cocktail cart that roams the halls int eh evenings. A COCKTAIL CART YOU GUYS.


The bathrooms may be my favorite part….


The scenic delft tiles! I would have never thought to use something so traditional in a space like this but it is pure genius.  With that bohemian striped shower curtain and the brass accents it’s seriously brilliant design.


I love the color on the woodwork in the restaurant (which is apparently amazing)


I wish this was what my Thanksgiving was going to look like :)


The moody bar is incredible- from the scenis wallcovering (or perhaps mural?) to the modern/rustic wood stools and the rich woodwork.  “Cozy” doesn’t even begin to cover it.


The hotel also has a signature scent created just for them–it apparently has notes of “sunrise fog, ambergris, cedar, sunbaked canvas, fern, driftwood, iris root, coiled rope, violet, and midnight bonfire.”  Yup, that sounds about right, although I’m not sure how coiled rope smells….


An installation of what I can only assume is a collection of antique ship artwork.


The exterior is charming as well (worth mentioning- the location is PERFECT- right in town and walkable to all the fab shops and harbor)



So yes, as you can tell this is my jam.  Has anyone been (I know it JUST opened recently off-season but please share if so!)

I want to also wish all of you a wonderful, happy, healthy Thanksgiving.  I know this is a unique holiday in that tensions are high and people are feeling uneasy, so why not cut to the chase and post this sign outside your door tomorrow above a basket to let everyone know that this holiday is about gratitude and love and we should all focus on the blessings we do have and not our feelings of unease.
