One of the things I want more of in 2017 is to travel and I have my eyes set on The Bahamas. Nothing like visiting new places and experiencing new cultures to invigorate the spirit. For me it is the best way to recharge creative fuels.
We’ve been to the Caribbean a few years ago and fell in love with the architecture, white sandy beaches and colorful life. People are friendly, the food is incredible and life just feels easy. We would be thrilled to revisit sometime soon but in the meantime, I found just the right home to look at and feel instantly inspired.
Amanda Lindroth is a talented American designer living in Nassau, Bahamas. Her interiors are comfortable and breezy, strongly influenced by classical architecture with an island twist. She uses color in vibrant hues to tell stories of chic interiors that are relaxed and fun.
Her three-story home in Lyford Cay is a great example of her work. An airy retreat with a whimsical mix of prints and furnishings, the house is surrounded by beautiful views of a golf course and the sea. Coral stone walls in the great room, twin beds in her daughter’s bedroom designed after ones in Oscar de la Renta’s Dominican Republic home, a canopy bed designed by Alberto Pinto, exquisite Dutch and French antiques are beautifully displayed with more casual elements, like jute rugs, Ikea sconces, rattan furniture and flea market finds. The result is a timeless home, that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Easy and warm, just like a summer breeze.
