Island Hopping

p 197 Chiccharney
If it is going to be this hot at the start of October, I may as well be on an island. After reading Amanda Lindroth’s new book, Island Hopping, it is easy to see why that would be a fabulous idea. The spaces she  creates are infused with an airy coastal ambience with a dash of Caribbean Colonial.As a born Floridian, I appreciate the Lindroth’s incorporation of the coastal landscape that surrounds many of the houses she designs.

To be honest, I take umbrage to many homes I see when I am visiting my parent’s home in Florida. They look as if they belong up North with stone and dark heavy fabric.  Lindroth creates homes full of texture that are comfortably inviting. Island Hopping is full of images that you want to jump into. They evoke the feeling that you will immediately be handed a drink surrounded by good friends in sunny spaces. May we all wish to live under those chic circumstances.
