Walter Gilman Page, 1862 – 1934 | Nantucket

With its salty shingled cottages and blooming hydrangeas, Nantucket always wins on character and seaside charm, so we’re seriously crushing on this throwback scene of the Massachusetts island town. Who wants to go for a Sunday stroll?

Harry Leslie Hoffman | Suicide Sloop

Around the Coastal Living offices, there’s no shade of blue we don’t like, but we’ll admit we’re a little biased toward aquamarine skies and cerulean seas like these. Happy sails, indeed.

Hayley Lever | The Watermelon

Whether you’re at a backyard barbecue or on the beach, there’s no better way to toast summertime than with a fresh-off-the-vine watermelon. We’ll take that juicy slice in the middle, please.

Norton Bush | A Memory of the Tropics

We love stealing away to far-flung island destinations like this one, where a misty haze has settled sleepily over the water, and strands of pink flora drip from lush tropical greenery. Totally dreamy.

Thomas W. Whitley | View of New York City from Hoboken, New Jersey

How’s this for a moment of zen? The combination of the placid blue waters, cloud white sails, and seashell pink sky feels like one long, slow exhale.
