Design house: Characterful, art-filled house in Nantucket, designed by Tim Button

This Nantucket home is a visual feast for the eyes.

This beautiful summer home in Nantucket, Massachusetts has been redesigned by Tim Button, a New York City based interior designer and co-owner of Stedila Design.

The renowned design firm is known for its high-profile work in the industry. They count Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis and Vince Camuto as just a selection of their previous clients. Stedila Design also worked on Clarke-Pelli’s The Visionaire, one of New York City’s most sustainable skyscrapers.

THE PROPERTY

This summer home in Nantucket was designed for a longtime client. The property – a 7,000 sq ft, 7-bedroom spec house was built by local architects but Tim opened the house up and completely reconfigured the layout. He furnished the house with an eclectic mix of custom pieces, Paris flea market finds, and the family’s own furniture, art and objects brought back from various travels.

Tim’s projects often include unexpected materials and repurposed objects. Here, some of those include antique Paris street lamps and custom shades made from London bus destination signs.
