Martha’s Vineyard Seaside:14 Chic Interiors with Decorative Rugs

When we hear the words Martha’s Vineyard we imagine picturesque New England sea captains’ houses, white picket fences, solitary lighthouses atop green hills, pristine beaches and rolling farmland. In recent years Martha’s Vineyard has also become associated with vacationing Clintons and Obamas as well as the elite from all over North America.

Martha’s Vineyard has some fabulous private homes that rarely appear in spreads in decorating magazines. I have assembled my favorite 14 Martha’s Vineyard interiors with decorator rugs. I hope you enjoy this selection.
