NEW KDHamptons Featured Book: Island Hopping by Amanda Lindroth
White canvas, 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 some of the signature ingredients of an Amanda Lindroth interior. Since she founded her Nassau-based 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 as far north as Great Cranberry Island, Maine.
Lindroth’s airy, relaxed, indoor-outdoor aesthetic—a hybrid that merges colonial and island influences— is apparent in every one of the twenty-five projects featured in her beautiful new book Island Hopping (Vendome, September, $60), which is the hottest new design book of fall.
With photographs by the masterly Tria Giovan, herself an island native, and charming illustrations by the gifted Aldous Bertram, who decorated the living room walls of Lindroth’s pied-àterre in Palm Beach with trompe l’oeil renderings that range from chinoiserie overdoors to tropical foliage, Island Hopping is the visual equivalent of an island getaway.
