No surprise! That winning, ever popular color duo, white and blue, is alive and well in the Caribbean. But there are fresh takes, unusual pairings, and new perspectives at play in Lyford Cay. Here is what I enjoyed while there for the Design Weekend.
And the name often associated with artfully and creatively incorporating blue and white into Lyford homes and settings is Amanda Lindroth (@LindrothDesign), a longtime resident. Two looks at her take on a cozy island abode (below).
Breaking up the varying shades of blue with cream paint, coral stone walls…and a small, comfy corner banquette.
While a pair of grand limed wood cabinets face each other at either ends of this living room.
Statement-making green walls are a foil to a favorite Bahamian color scheme (Ann Greely Interiors).
While sharp white is accented with strong blue statements (LuluDK design)
But sometimes, just a POP of blue is all it takes…
Love the surrounding upper shelf and shape of this room with its inspired selection of shades and patterns of blue.
Chiced up, with a Chinoiserie mirror, slate blue marble fireplace and silk lampshades.
With this vignette at the end of the enfilade of rooms.
Whimsical paintwork, in softened shades of blue on both walls and ceiling, pairs with accents of real shells in the accessories.
A painted floor can often ground a room, and blue again, is a favorite choice in the Bahamas.
There are all shades of blue in the spectrum; don’t forget that delicious celadon blue.
How’s this for a close…giving new meaning to making a blue statement (in a seaside grotto, no less)!
