They meet you at the door each day, they are always happy to see you, they are part of the family and they never ask for anything in return, we love our dogs.

After a long day of running around the yard, going on walks, and playing fetch, your dog is ready to relax. Typically dog beds are thrown in the corner of the room and not given much thought, but why not make a statement with it? Dog beds are becoming more and more fashionable with different builds, colors and fabrics.

These styles are pretty classic, but different fabrics can make these beds really pop. Don’t be afraid of new patterns and colors!

A bed like this for smaller dogs can double as a side table and work into the interior of a room as while saving some floor space.

Doggy steps and ramps are a popular item too. Smaller dogs don’t always have the easiest time getting up on the couch or bed to cuddle, so these make it easier for them and yourself!

Who doesn’t like a big cozy place to dream and snooze away?

These innovative designs are something to think about if a new kitchen remodel is in your future. Placing a nook for your pup’s bed saves space and looks clean.

The dog bed doesn’t have to be an eye-sore in the living room or kitchen, it can be become part of the room.

Now you can make your dogs’ beds part of your home décor and really incorporate it into the style and look of the room you place it in. Just remember even if you have a fabulous bed for your dog, it doesn’t always guarantee they’ll be using it all the time!

Even the Nantucket Home mascot Bailey prefers the chair!

Summer is here! In February,  I look forward to the long, light filled days and evenings of summer, fresh homegrown fruits and vegies and the lush color green everywhere in trees, lawns and shrubs. I look forward to outdoor dinners, playing in the creek, boating, star gazing and reading in the hammock. What I do not appreciate are flies, and mosquitos and all the diseases they carry that ruin all the fun.

You can use insect repellant, citronella candles, a fly swatter or you can cover up in hot clothing (or all of the above) and still not solve your pesky insect problem. Or you can escape into the dreamlike world of life under a tropical mosquito netting.

The use of mosquito netting has been traced back as far as Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt.  Netting can transform a plain room into a romantic guaze-y retreat.

It offers pesticide free protection from West Nile and encephalitis which unfortunately are becoming more common in the Chico area.

Here at Nantucket Home we just happened to get in a new shipment of these airy mosquito nets! Available in two colors, white or ivory and two styles that fit all sizes of beds. Stop by our showroom to see our display.

Celebrating Local posted by Julie Rinehart

Here at Nantucket Home, we are all about celebrating local businesses! We know firsthand the hard work it takes to own a Mom and Pop shop and that it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our community. This weekend we are excited to welcome LEE industries to Chico and show them why we take so much pride in the Chico community. LEE Industries believes in the mission of supporting local communities and the movement to bring back brick and mortar shops and local businesses. Traveling all the way from North Carolina with film crew in tow, the owners of LEE Industries will be getting the tour of Chico. They will be learning about our style, our community and our love for local artisans.


While the film crew is filming, we will be celebrating by serving some of our local favorites…

Farm Star Pizza, “Awesome pies where the farmer is the star!” We love farm star pizza and their commitment to using local ingredients whenever possible. We will be serving their lemon pizza, made with local meyer lemons.

The downtown farmers market, a Chico tradition for over 30 years. The market is our favorite place for fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers and more! We will be serving fresh fruit kebabs from our local farmers.

R.W. Knudsen Family, where they are passionate about creating exciting juices from the highest quality ingredients available. The Knudsen family started their business with their Concord grape vineyard  in Paradise, CA and from there created some of the best-selling products in the natural food industry.  We will be serving their Santa Cruz organic spritzers.

2 English Ladies, with a mission to “create the freshest & most authentic English curds on this side of the Pond! “ Pat Holdstock and her daughter Claire Stephens specialize in English tea products, making everything from scratch without additives or preservatives. You may have tried their tasty products at the farmers market. We will be serving their lemon, orange and lime curds, along with their original, lavender and gluten-free shortbreads.

We will also be serving Cal Java coffee, “Think Globally, Drink Locally”. Over the years they’ve traveled to the finest coffee growing regions, researching the best and tastiest, bringing home to Chico some of the finest beans in the world.

Painting demonstrations by our beloved local artist Ilona Cronan.  Finding fascination in the smallest of things, Ilona is never bored with anything life has to show her.  Rendering a simple object juxtaposed to a straight line, balancing the shapes and color as if she were studying and playing the game of “stoppage” is her way in art.   If she’s happy with the compositions, really happy, she will stop.  If not, she will keep going until she feels a balance.

We are looking forward to having these great local companies as part of our event on Saturday. We hope to see you here! For more information on the event, click here.
