The MNY Spotlight
Meet Amanda Lindroth, Founder of Amanda Lindroth Design
I am Amanda Lindroth. I have lived in the Bahamas for 30 years and I have designed houses, hotels, and clubs, here and across the Caribbean & the US over the last 2 decades. I am having so much fun!

I gravitate to the style which is appropriate to the place I am designing. I observe the classical traditions of architecture and customs in each of the places I am working. These local details are usually implicit to the success of the houses and can include ingenious ways to catch an island breeze, shelter from the glare of a sunset, protection from storms and so many other clever ideas.
Study magazines, books and the internet. look at millions of images. Make folders for furniture arrangements, upholstery details, and every related to design. This will all help you edit and understand the many successful ways to create beautiful rooms.
Things being too big or small. Be sure to check measurements!
Crisp cotton printed fabrics, fluffy great upholstery, natural Seagrass or abaca or sisal rugs.

It is constantly evolving as I constantly study and learn. My own DNA comes through in my work nonetheless but there are always subtle changes as we look at beautiful rooms when we travel etc.
We design and make so many beautiful things from tabletop to bedding and all things related to candle light and lanterns. All the things necessary for al al fresco life on a terrace, veranda, boat or beach.
The prints and the breezy chic are just beautiful!
