Island life: Caribbean inspiration for your interiors

15 February 2019 • Written by Tory Kingdon

Recent tropical charter vacation left you with a taste for bold colours and vibrant prints? There's no need to overhaul your whole boat - just a few small additions can help breathe some island vibes into your interiors. Capture the spirit of the Caribbean with artisan pieces and pops of colour, says Tory Kingdon.

Bywater bedside cupboard

A practical bedside unit in beautiful washed acacia with carved detailing, this cupboard also features polka dot-lined drawers.


Nido armchair and pouf

Look to Paola Lenti for outdoor seating in vibrant hues. We love the Nido armchair with a contemporary stainless steel base and a comfortable woven seat with cushions.

In 100 per cent linen, this vibrant print in the sherbet colourway echoes the pretty pastel hues found in the Bahamas.

A collaboration between Davidson and Taylor Howes, this beautiful table, available in bespoke sizes, is hand-carved and finished in a unique pebble anegre with a bronze inlay to the edge and base.
