ISLAND LIFE

island life, island living, island dreaming!

who doesn’t like the island way of life? easy and casual! who doesn’t like the Caribbean style of homes?  relaxed and comfortable! who doesn’t like island living? sophisticated, inspiring, really chic!

i love colonial and anglo- indian influences- island style is the best! i love slip-covered, wicker and rattan furniture, add in coral, block print pillows, hurricanes, baskets and ikat’s- island living is the best! – clear water, fresh air, sun soaked rooms- island dreaming, it’s the best!

i love blue, the color of the water and the sky. i love all shades of blue- ICE BLUE, CHINA BLUE, TIFFANY BLUE, ROBINS EGG BLUE, TURQUOISE BLUE, ROYAL BLUE, LAPIS BLUE, NAVY BLUE- the color of island life!

there is no reason not to enjoy the dream- slipcover a room, add a few wicker chairs, add some blue pillows, a few palm trees- why not? island living is the best!
