Now with 16 new pages--from the Bahamas to Great Cranberry Island, Maine, Amanda Lindroth’s interiors embody the laid-back, easy-breezy, sun-kissed spirit of island living
White canvas, boldly colored fabrics in solids, stripes, and jaunty prints, rattan and cane seating, whitewashed or colorfully painted English case furniture, canopied beds, straw matting—these are some of the signature ingredients of an Amanda Lindroth interior. Since she founded her Nassau-based firm in 2010, she has become the go-to designer of island dwellers from Lyford Cay to Antigua, Abaco to Belize, Harbour Island to Palm Beach, and as far north as Great Cranberry Island, Maine. Her airy, relaxed, indoor-outdoor aesthetic is apparent in every one of the twenty-five projects featured here. With photographs by Tria Giovan, herself an island native, and charming illustrations by Aldous Bertram, who decorated Lindroth’s pied-à-terre in Palm Beach with stunning trompe l’oeil renderings, the book is the visual equivalent of an island getaway.
