Gary McBournie














Have you guys checked out the March issue of House Beautiful? It's all about perfect color combos, including a new spin on red, white and blue with this 1828 Nantucket beach cottage designed by Gary McBournie. The Boston interior designer (who also has offices in Nantucket and Palm Beach) actually owns the little cottage, and I think it epitomizes his style: Classic American with a subtle twist on tradition. I just adore the design of living room, which was inspired by the great ticking stripe fabric. He even cut out the blue and red stripe from the fabric and used it as a border on the curtains! LOOVE the paint color too, of course it just happens to by Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue–one of my favorites! The kitchen is too perfect with Benjamin Moore's Covington Blue abound! See more pics by Julian Wass and learn all about the home over here!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been racking my brain (and google!!) for how to bring these colours together. I noticed that there is even some green and yellow in the throw cushions - two must-have colours for me. I have a somewhat open concept kitchen/dining/living, and though each room is a distinct space, because they are all seen from the other rooms, I need a colour scheme that will be unique to each room and will still work together well. This is just what I needed for the inspiration.

Love Palladian Blue! I have it on my dining room ceiling and the walls of my master bedroom and bath. Looks gorgeous in all three places.

I really like how he introduced red accents in each room. The rooms have their own feel, but flow beautifully. Very well done!

I love this. Are the two sofas in the same room? Do you have a big picture of the room? I'm trying to get a feel for how it's situated.

I love the colors and how the accents add to the beauty.

Thanks for sharing.
