ANDREW RAQUET ~ DESIGN IN LYFORD CAY

This gorgeous 1960s home was previously owned by fashion and fabric designer Laura Ashley.   The structure of the Georgian-style home on Lyford Cay in the Bahamas was in desperate condition, and it took the couple several months to renovate.

With the renovation behind them, the couple brought in interior designer Andrew Raquet to design the interior. Raquet's style is unexpected, spirited, and bold, and the owners gave the designer free rein. What resulted was a beautiful beach front abode.  ENJOY!

Wow, what a beautiful home. We adore the wood ceiling and walls and the living room is so inviting. Not to mention the gorgeous outdoor spaces. The garden statues are our favorites.

Not really my style. But I must say it'd do in a pinch and I could definitely overlook the interiors with it's location! Wow that back yard is amazing!

What a gorgeous home...

I'm lovin' all that wall drama,
the flooring and all those lovely fabrics in there.

And the outdoors is so perfect.

I like the pool but indoors seems stuffy.
