If you caught my last post, you probably guessed I was headed to
for a little R and R.
As promised, now that I’m back
I want to share my design perspective on this
"HEAVEN ON EARTH"
And I’m hoping I can inspire you
to translate some of these insights into your own homes.
I want to start with COLOR
because that’s what instantly comes to mind when I think of Bermuda.
It’s everywhere, and it’s embraced by the island.
In fact, locals are encouraged to paint their homes and shops bright colors
in keeping with Bermudian tradition.
But the color isn’t just on the houses…
The bursts of pink, green and yellow pop up everywhere you look.
I just can’t help but think of Lilly Pulitzer
when I see these combinations.
Could this island have been her inspiration, as well?

Did I mention AQUA?
One of my all-time favorite colors is seen in every imaginable shade.
But the most beautiful is the translucent aqua of the water.
(that’s me floating around taking in the incredible view)
Does it get any more gorgeous than this?
Aqua and pink makes a striking pair.
Believe it or not, it’s on a warehouse!
Who says you can’t dress up a utility building?
And the same goes for your home. Take a cue from Bermuda
and add a shot of color into your rooms for an instant mood changer!
I’ll be back next time with a peek at Bermuda interiors,
both historic and new
so stay in touch.
