We hope you had the experience of a lifetime Snwazna, thanks for being a shining ambassador of the Turks and Caicos Islands!
The foyer is a great introduction to the house, the rich wood floors meet your feet and contemporary, earthy furnishings greet just beyond the door. The kitchen is so spacious it begs to be the center of family and friends gathering place. Dining options abound, no wonder the countertop acts as a giant cutting board! The living room conceals it’s flat screen television as a reflective mirror.
I adored these distressed vintage looking letters, much more so knowing that they represent the first letters of each of the owners childrens names. Quite the monogram but the SEA that lies just beyond this house . . . quite spectacular. The location, the house, the pool, the beach makes for one completely stunning package so it’s no wonder a buyer fell in love with this house instantly, snatching it off the market in record time. Luckily I had the chance to style for one amazing wedding here on October 27th, I’ll share those images soon!
The fabric flag strands were created using materials from the local thrift shop; skirts, shirts, and sundresses were cut into squares and alternated down the line with a few long strips to act as streamers in between. Mother Nature made the unbelievable driftwood “skull” which I adorned with a vivid turquoise and gold necklace to give a desert chic feel to the ceremony. A traditional gift of Caribbean welcome is the pineapple so the exotic fruit acted as table card stands. A few pillow covers were made from the same thrift store fabrics as the flags for the canopied daybed.
I was 8 months pregnant at the time and certainly did a great deal of sweating throughout the course of this shoot! TC Millwork built and delivered an 8′ x 8′ platform which took quite the maneuvering through our location Mandalay. I happen to agree with SELF, whether it’s sweat from working out or working hard, it does make you sexy!
