This painting, titled Circle of Children by Ilene Hughes, hangs in our guest studio — a recent renovation project, we completed out here on Nantucket. The room was paneled with wood walls and a v-groove ceiling then painted all white. Custom cedar barn doors flank one side of the room, and will be stained close to their natural color. Working with a blank slate is a dream, but the decision to use “Nantucket red” club chairs, changed the palette.
After digging through a storage area full of furnishings, we uncovered this huge piece of art in Susan Shepherd’s collection. The painting is the focal point in the room and ties everything together. And, we love the grouping of 3 children.
