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.
"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
"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
