Reveal day is finally here. And after several months of planning and preparing, the foyer is officially finished. Now I get to share my take on Island style with you. As I mentioned in a previous post I love African Asian and Indian décor (British Colonial) with a splash of the tropics. And after traveling to Hawaii last year I wanted to create a year round vacation destination in my own home. Now here I am 18 months later extremely excited about all of the changes that are taking place in our home. So without any further ado, I present my rendition of our Island Oasis. Lots of pics, Enjoy
I think these lamps are the cats meow. I purchased them at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $20. I swiped the shades from exiting lamps that weren't being used. The shades have an Asian feel.
The seashells were inspirational in getting the ball rolling on this project. Who knew?
My daughter drew this Cheetah when she was in Junior High School. Not only is it sentimental, it's a keeper. Thanks Top!
With the addition of so much blue I decided to accent the wall under the stair case with this vivid green. It's bold but I like it! You like?
This incredibly amazing Ikat fabric was purchased from Trolley Fabrics in Thomasville Georgia. The fabric was my splurge for this room. Love it!
It's all in the details! Even the hardware has a little island thingy going on!
When we decided to create this space we threw caution to the wind. We figured since this is our home we may as well do what we like. And that's exactly what we did, and we are pleased with the end result. It is my hope that this post will cause those who want to create something out of the ordinary to go for it. In the words of my favorite designer C. Lowell " Where there is fear there is no creativity." So I challenge you to start creating spaces that are a reflection of who you are and how you live!
