A Project Evolves, Chestnut Hill Kitchen Reveal!

Elizabeth Tobin

This is a project that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve been working with this client since the start of Pinney Designs (almost 8 years)! You know you’ve done your best by a client when they keep coming back to you time and again.

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this kitchen since we first met these clients. When we first met they had mentioned that they had redone the kitchen after they bought the house (10 years prior) and were happy with it. So, although the kitchen was off the list for now, we worked on other rooms in the house, like this gorgeous living room.

What makes working on this Royal Berry Willis house so fun is that the interior is constantly evolving. And when our client reached out last summer wanting a bigger kitchen sink, one idea led to another, we ended up doing an entire kitchen renovation. We're so excited to reveal the newest project update here on the blog!

It really warms my soul and makes me feel that even though I am not saving the world like my sister I am doing good work and making people happy in the homes that I’ve created for them. Take a look through the before and after comparisons below to see the transformation! For a closer look at the project, scroll through our gallery wall below.

Transitional Style Takes on Nantucket!

A Family of Collectors

We have a few go to sources for finding perfect art pieces to fit our clients palette. In our newest Nantucket Project, we didn't have to. Our clients had generations of coastal and traditional art collected that we were able to place throughout the home. From the main living room, to the bar cart, to the bedrooms, and even the basement, we collaborated with this family of collectors to choose the perfect piece for each room.

I truly love when our clients have their hands in on the style of a project. It adds a larger team element to the process that makes designing so much fun! Take a look through our newest Nantucket project below and make sure to follow us on Instagram for other scenes from this shoot!

Finding the finishing touches..

I can’t believe it’s been 4 weeks since the Pinney Designs team and I were on Nantucket for our most recent install. I’m excited to share some pictures of the install with you soon, we’re working on something really special! But, until then, I thought I would share with you some off site shots and in store scenes from our accessory shopping while on island.

Getting everything to the island takes a lot of logistics and having everything we need before the big install is crucial. But, we always leave room in our accessory budget for the finishing touches to be bought on island. There are so many great stores that I love and have wonderful island themed items. On top of that I also think it’s great to support the local economy when we can.

The Lions Paw, 30 Main St Nantucket, MA 02554, is certainly my first stop. They have a great linen and textile collection. We’re always looking here for that one of a kind accent pillow and they carry the best accent pillow selection on the island.

Nantucket Looms, 51 Main St Nantucket, MA 02554, is also a must. Not only do they have great accessories (including the throws they weave themselves in their studio upstairs) but their art collection is well curated and has a good range in subject.  For this project we didn’t need any art as the client’s are art collectors but typically this is where we go for key beach imagery.

Anderson’s, 29 Main St, Nantucket, MA 02554, has a great selection of picture frames, art, and other decorative accents. On this visit we grabbed some coasters and a beautiful set of three ceramic nesting bowls for the house.

Flowers on Chestnut, 1 Chestnut St, Nantucket, MA 02554 is always our last stop on the accessory shopping trip. Nothing - NOTHING makes a home feel more like home than some fresh cut flowers and plants. Flowers on Chestnut has an amazing collection of fresh flowers as well as some really great looking fakes (that we used for this install).
