We’ve been busy creating fun and inspirational ideas for our work in the Caribbean! With the sunshine making a much anticipated appearance again here in the UK it feels like the perfect time to share two exciting new schemes finalised this week in Barbados as part of our Just Rooms service!
The above fabric is ‘Monkey Puzzle’ by Bennison Fabrics and is the focus of this beautiful, relaxed sitting room for casual, comfortable living by the sea. The scheme features a fun colour palette with nautical elements and quirky touches which add interest to this otherwise classic, contemporary Caribbean living room. The coffee table, media unit and side table are part of the Jenny Blanc furniture collection made locally by a team of very talented and skilled Barbadian artisans whom we are proud to have built a longstanding relationship with.
The second scheme (pictured above) is for a very large dining and relaxing terrace overlooking the sea on the West Coast of Barbados! This scheme features sophisticated outdoor furniture including sofas, armchairs and sun loungers, all upholstered in nautical white fabric. We have created a selection of bespoke scatter cushions using 10 different fabrics in shades of aqua, white and citron – the bold mixture of patterns and textures creates a much more relaxed and less formal feel. Aqua and citron is of course a firm favourite for tropical schemes, blending perfectly with the surrounding sea, sky and sun!
When we choose fabrics for the tropics it’s essential that they are practical as well as beautiful. Good quality, outdoor fabrics which are UV resistant, washable and hardwearing are the perfect choice for terraces and poolside areas and are often used indoors too because of their durability.
We hope you have been inspired by today’s schemes for Barbados! If you would like more information on any of the products featured or our Just Rooms design service, please contact either the London or Barbados showroom.
