The well-known interior designer Nancy Serafini and her husband, Joe, bought this, once their vacation beach house, back in 1985 and saw her own kids enjoy every summer on the shores of this classic Nantucket shingle home. But it was in 2013 when the couple decided to make a definitive move from Boston to this quiet town that they decided to hire architect Tom Catalano to transform the quaint cottage into a home where she now can see her grandchildren grow.

Take notes on paint colors, decor and more details shared by the designer. This home is truly all about family and lasting love.

Where everything started: The design scheme began with color. “I love Farrow & Ball Dix Blue,” Nancy says. “Once I chose that, I chose all my fabrics. But I wanted navy, too, so the fabrics had to work with that as well.” The color we see here is the designer’s favorite color; Dix Blue by Farrow and Ball.

Meet Tony, the couple’s Wheaten Terrier. Is he cute? 🙂

When a house becomes a home: “As the kids grew older and married, we wanted to build a true family home,” Nancy says. “Everyone gathers, and the laughter and cries keep us constantly jumping. Every pillow fight, every trip to the beach, they all have the best time. I look at the house as a gift to my kids and grandkids.”

The blue shutters paint color is Farrow and Ball Dix Blue.

    I love the blue and white tile on the fireplace but can’t find a website for Showcase tile. Is that a brand of tile or an actual store?
