I'm super excited to see that Pottery Barn has started carrying a few gorgeous furniture pieces embracing the West Indies Style I love so much. I have always been a huge fan of the "plantation style" chairs, with the dark, turned wood and cane backing. It's such an elegant piece, I did a whole room dedicated to it!! Make that two rooms actually! I used the Pottery Barn Farmhouse bed in the second room, for a more contemporary feel, and a traditional four poster from Thomasville for the first. I prefer the more traditional!!
I thought that the rusty orange palette from the seaweed prints would be a good jumping off point for fabric and wall colours. The trellis rug, has such a great pattern and picks up on the seaweed colour and is a great counterpoint to the rich wood tones. I'm not totally sold on the Khandar Cinnabar fabric from Calico Corners, but I like the fact that it brings in a lighter shade of orange and a pretty gold shade that would be perfect for a wall colour.
