bahamian style.

We honeymooned in the Bahamas, and two years ago, I fell in love with the easy breezy and cheerful Bahamian style that decorates the way of life on the islands.
So, when September's Coastal Living arrived, featuring a Harbour Island retreat, I was smitten. I was immediately transported back to soft, pink sand beneath the toes, eclectic vintage rattan furniture, brightly painted plantation-style homes and the most incredible crystal clear water you ever did see.

Cue Jimmy Buffet's Tin Cup Chalice.
I'd like to go back, and this time, visit the newly redesigned Dunmore. The spread is major eye candy, and the informative interview with designer Amanda Lindroth provides background into the design process.
Loving... turquoise, coral, seagrass, driftwood, rattan, stripes, shells, bamboo and more. Pick up the mag and take notes!

PS: A few of our favorite stops on Harbour Island: the restaurant at The Landing; the pool lounge at The Rock House Hotel; and the marina bar at Valentine's. And, just a five minute water taxi from Harbour Island is our most favorite vacation destination: Eleuthera.
