Book Love: Island Hopping by Amanda Lindroth Design
I was thrilled to receive a coveted advance copy of Amanda Lindroth’s new book, Island Hopping.
It truly transports you to the islands.
You are whisked from one magical location to the next. Each more comfortable than the next with plenty of style but an informal ease only attained with a life well traveled and lived.
It design is a seamless combination of simple chic design and flawless style bent to the tropics.
White duck, 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 but some of the signature ingredients of an Amanda Lindroth interior. The Florida-born designer decamped to Nassau some 20 years ago after stints in New York and London. Since she founded her 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 Southampton to Great Cranberry Island in Maine. Her airy, relaxed, indoor-outdoor aesthetic—a hybrid that merges colonial and island influences—is apparent in every one of the 30 projects featured in Island Hopping. With photographs by the masterly Tria Giovan, herself an island native, and charming illustrations by the gifted Aldous Bertram, the book is the visual equivalent of an island getaway.
“The visual equivalent of a beach getaway—the front cover is framed in faux raffia!—this lavish book from the go-to designer for island dwellers features 25 projects. . . . Good vibes only.”— Classic Home
“A portrait of modern-day life in the tropics that rivals the enchantment of Slim Aaron’s photographs of glamorous island life in the 1950s and ’60s.”— Veranda
“Amanda Lindroth designs luxe, low-key rooms that are the epitome of tropical chic.”— Flower
“Page through Amanda Lindroth’s Island Hopping, full of Caribbean estates she’s elevated with sherbet colors, cabana stripes, and batik, and you’ll swear you feel a cross breeze.”— Martha Stewart Living
“Interior designer Amanda Lindroth works primarily in the Bahamas and has a second studio and shop in Palm Beach. This book shares thirty of her colorful, playful designs that blend the indoors and outdoors.”— Garden & Gun
“Lindroth’s breezy Bahamas style comes through in her work, which manages to make English antiques and rattan furniture look like they were made to be paired together. . . . The book perfectly captures Lindroth’s sophisticated yet approachable style.”— Galerie
