Bahama Babes: Faith Hill & Tim McGraw

I am a HUGE fan of all things Tim McGraw.  This fondness is 20 years strong and not waning.

He clearly adores his gorgeous and talented wife so I think all marriages are safe but, he did become a bit more enticing if that is even possible when he showed up with a perfectly designed and uber chic private island in the Bahamas.  

I could just move right in…

On their own private island in the Bahamas, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw create the perfect escape 

When you think of country stars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw at home, the first thing that may come to mind are the neon lights of downtown Nashville. But their home away from home on the 20-acre private island they call “L’île d’Anges” is a far cry from the music halls and boot shops. “I think the beach has always represented, to the McGraws, a simplicity that their everyday life lacks,” says interior designer Ray Booth. “So this house needed to offer a real clarity and cleanliness in its aesthetic.” Booth, along with architects Bobby Alpine and Greg Tankersley, cobbled together eight distinct “pavilions” linked together by open-air passageways that mimic the surrounding dreamy blue water and bright white sand. And while you may not live anywhere near water or sand, your home could learn a thing or two from the McGraws’ decor; its timeless blue-and-white palette and naturalistic accents are a foolproof formula for polished but approachable style. Shop pieces inspired by some of the home’s most impressive spaces.
