COASTAL LIVING: VIEW WITH A ROOM BY CATHERINE M. AUSTIN INTERIOR DESIGN

When the editors at Coastal Living invited me to design a sunroom for their “View with a Room” column, I could not wait to see the inspiration image I would receive. I was delighted to get this scene from Bermuda with everything I adore….a flamboyance of flamingos, pinks, greens, and beautiful reflections off of the lagoon water. I fell down the rabbit hole searching for all things in “flamingo pink” and attempted to create a collected space that included vintage finds, contemporary photography, and colorful textiles and rugs from favorite sources.  See below for the design scheme featured in the March issue of Coastal Living on stands now…

SURFING, SALSA & SPANGLISH: LOCAL COLOR

“The eye has to travel”-Diana Vreeland

I can think of nothing more essential to my creativity than travel. Experiencing other cultures, seeing how they use color effusively without reservation, their art of presentation, and interacting with local artisans are always the greatest sources of inspiration for me. Each year I try to take one creative pilgrimage and this year’s trip to Las Olas provided unlimited doses of local color.  Founder Bev Sanders describes the village “Everyday is a new adventure in Bohemia. Street musicians, jewelry shops, taco stands, iguanas, surfers, and tourists all blend into a four block theater with the beach at center stage. It’s like we are on cast in an off-off-Broadway revue that plays non-stop for a week. But more, I love the effortlessly positive attitude.  Everyone wants to take part and help in each other’s success. Es todo bien!”
