One day I'm going to spend the summer in Nantucket. Or least a weekend. All I ever see are beautiful cottages and fabulous gardens coming from there. Take this peaceful and cozy home belonging to Boston interior designer Nancy Serafini for example. Each room has so many neat elements to look at. And how cheery is that green guest room? I had to include it (I swear I spy turquoise in the valance and shams!) Head over to Traditional Home to see more, including the path of crushed seashells that leads to the arbored garden entrance. You just don't find that in Minnesota!

I love this eco-friendly bedroom designed by Samantha Pynn that was featured on Design Wanna-be. I wish I had a TV right now because Samantha has a show called Pure Design on HGTV that is supposed to be great. If her other rooms are as lovely as this, I must check it out. Have any of you seen the show?

I was excited to spot this Harlem home belonging to designer Sheila Bridges. Last year So Haute wrote a fantastic post about her, so to learn more and see lots more images head here. My favorite room is definitely the top image, Sheila's study, where some of her favorite quotes are hand painted on the walls. I love it!

I fell hard for this Victorian farmhouse in Maryland belonging to designer Carrie Raphael when I spotted it on Simply Seleta. I just love the Swedish style used here. There are so many great details...the painted floor, slipcovers, the benches, the church window...love it all. You can check out more images from this home on Country Living, and be sure to check out Carrie Raphael's site for lots more Victorian inspiration, and to see her collection of custom designed, vintage inspired pieces for sale.

The painted shelves in this dining room photographed by Donna Griffith really highlight the beautiful collection of white dishes. I can't even imagine how boring it would look if it was just painted white. The loveliness is only heightened with the matching blue chairs. So pretty!
