COM­FORT IS KEY TO GOOD DE­SIGN

Coastal Living - - HAVENS -

“I want to live in, and I want my clients to live in, houses that have a cross breeze all year long. I want old­fash­ioned shut­ters, which mit­i­gate un­com­fort­able light at sun­rise and sun­set. A house must stay cool in the hottest months and have dap­pled, com­fort­able light through­out the year.”

OPEN-AIR POL­ICYThe de­signer’s Ly­ford Cay home fea­tures a breezy ve­randa that stretches the length of the house and is pro­tected by an awning and fold­away shut­ters (painted South­field Green by Ben­jamin Moore). The fur­nish­ings are vin­tage wicker cov­ered in striped cot­ton fab­ric.

BEAUTY SLEEPCerused wood shut­ters send Caribbean breezes through this guest bed­room on An­tigua. Lin­droth dressed the beds in In­dian block-printed blan­kets.
