Think Pink

Pantone has recently announced its predicted colour for 2011.

Pink is the feel good colour of the spectrum, it relaxes and cheers people up. What a nice way to enter 2011. This particular tinted pink is mid-tone due to the amount of white in it. Its soft and rounded yet still grabs your attention.

My ode to this colour is the spectacular frangipani flower, whose varieties sing out with all the honeysuckle pink you could wish for.

Happy island styling!

Jamaican Gem

I just love the crisp freshness of the decor at Round Hill hotel, Jamaica.

The bright cobalt blue and hot pink are sensational together, set against dazzling white and beautiful deep dark timbers. The mix of traditional with contemporary really works here and the overall look is simple but very striking.

The perfect bedroom

Simple, but stunning

Cobalt blue punctuates the blue sky & pool

A subtle retro nod to regency

Stunning bedroom

This reminds me of Greece, with its cobalt blue and
crisp white colour combination

This is my favourite. Simple, striking, stunning

Colonial accents like these gorgeous chairs add 
romance to the bedroom

Relaxed verandah

Striking use of blue and white striped fabric

Dinner under the island stars

Happy island styling!
