It’s the coastal collab or our dreams, and it’s for rent this summer.
There’s no summer destination quite like Nantucket, with its cobblestone streets, seaside cottages, abundance of blooming hydrangeas, fresh lobster rolls, and the Brant Point Lighthouse flickering in the background. And this summer, there’s one more reason to fall in love with the storied summer getaway: the unveiling of a colorful new vacation cottage designed by the queen of bright hues and tropical patterns, Lilly Pulitzer.
The coastal collaboration, a takeover of one of the White Elephant hotel’s charming one-bedroom cottage rentals, is billed as “coastal casual meets New England elegance,” with design inspiration stemming from the sun and sea.
The cottage’s interiors are a bright blend of lively Lilly prints and classic maritime touches that pop against the cottage’s neutral walls. In the living room, blue-and-white striped pillows and a sailboat painting nod to the nautical locale, and the elephant valence—in Lilly’s signature ‘Joy Ride’ print—pays homage to the White Elephant hotel.
Other additions such as gold coral base lamps, blue and white ginger jars, woven baskets, and a marvelous white maritime-inspired chandelier set the tone for a stylish and relaxing summer on ACK.
And no surprise, the interior isn’t the only aspect of the Lilly cottage we’re loving. Outside, the White Elephant’s storybook grounds reach right up to the picturesque Nantucket harbor, providing the perfect launch pad for dreamy New England days.
When the urge to venture out strikes, you can hop on a complimentary beach cruiser and explore Nantucket’s beaches, lighthouses, shops, restaurants, and general summertime splendor.
The seaside destination opens on April 12 with room rates starting at $350 per night.
