Island Living...

House Hunters International (on HGTV) has been my new addiction lately.  Since moving to the burbs of Atlanta 15 years ago, this Floridian has been dreaming of a beach hut near the coast... but lately the lures of the Caribbean have been calling to me!  My husband, although intrigued by the idea, swears I would not like island living.  "You can't sit still and you would be bored in a months time" he says.  I beg to differ, I would say, "I did grow up in Antigua."  Well technically I lived there from ages 5-7.. but still
who wouldn't want to live in a house like India Hick's home in the Bahamas
inside her gorgeous 1950's bungalow.. notice the huge sailboat?
This 30"x 35" Union Jack Pond Yacht is available at Gillyweed for $95.
Okay so I can't have the Island or for that matter Beach Bungalow right now. (anyone want to purchase a commercial building in Carrollton, Ga?)  I can, however, start accumulating sources for style inspiration.. like these amazing furniture collections.  Xavier Furniture, mostly known for their French Provencal (my other love) and Hampton's style pieces, has a new Caribbean line that is so pretty. 
 The Stuart Membery Home Collection would be the perfect choice for outdoor verandas, porches, and sunrooms.   
Curse you House Hunters International!!!!
