For more than thirty years, interior designer Gary McBournie and his life and business partner, Bill Richards, have been creatively energized by Nantucket’s endless charm. Producing a luxury fabric and wallpaper line, Gary McBournie Home, was a natural next step. “We are both strongly attracted to the rich and unique history of the island, from its early settlement times to its whaling heydays to its rediscovery as a resort destination and artist colony,” says McBournie. “The decorative arts are also of great interest, including basketmaking, wood carving, and textiles.” The collection is a greatest hits of coastal patterns, including vintage nautical motifs, crisp stripes, and cheerful florals.

Gary McBournie Home is available exclusively through Nantucket’s Weatherly Design,
