White Elephant, Nantucket

Of course Nantucket hotels have long been sold out for the upcoming Labor Day weekend, but fall is also an idyllic time to unwind on the island that’s such a sought-after New England destination. In hotel news, the historic White Elephant Hotel has debuted its second loft. Located on Main Street about half a mile from the hotel, the loft occupies the second floor of a 19th century brick building.

The contemporary interiors were designed by BPC Architecture, a Nantucket firm that specializes in coastal vacation homes. There are three bedrooms and an open-plan living area and kitchen; Wallpaper magazine notes the cool design features: “wire-back stools by Harry Bertoia, leather PK22 lounge chairs by Poul Kjaerholm and decorative elephants from Charles and Ray Eames are flanked by a stained-oak feature wall on one side and a 50-foot-long window that looks out to Nantucket's busiest thoroughfare on the other.”
