BRUNCH AND TALK
When: Saturday, February 25, 10:00 am
Originally from Florida and now a resident of Nassau, Amanda Lindroth has gained an international reputation for her interior design in resort areas. With an early career including stints at Women’s Wear Daily and Gucci, her eye was always drawn to fashion and interiors.
Upon moving to Nassau from Europe, Lindroth focused on interior design, imbuing the spirit of island life into her projects. Her business took off.
Island homes are all about romance, she said. “Beds are well dressed and beautiful; they have a resort quality to them. Kitchens are more old fashioned, and living rooms have a connection to the outdoors. Great island style reminds you where you are, rather than distracting you from it.”
While Lindroth’s style shows great respect for classical design and architecture, her love for color, creativity and resort spirit shine through in her projects, made from materials she describes as simple, old and organic. “I like sea grass rugs on the floor, grass cloth on the walls, and beautiful Bahamian straw work throughout,” she said. “Old four-poster beds with eyelet and batik throw pillows fit in so well, as do watercolors and local artwork, hurricane lamps and candles.”
Signature favorites, such as the use of island motifs, hand-painted palm trees and awning stripes, led to such demand for her style and decorative pieces that her Palm Beach location, Lindroth Design, was born.
She recently debuted her Lindroth Island bags, which were subsequently featured in Vogue and Town & Country. The straw totes and clutches were featured at the launch of her Southampton Pop Up on Jobs Lane, marked as one of the ultimate design shopping destinations by Architectural Digest.
Lindroth has been widely published in House Beautiful, Southern Living, Veranda and Coastal Living.
