What a week it has been! With Hurricane Sandy blasting it's way through our city and surrounding areas we were very fortunate to go through it rather unscathed. Gripped to our TV watching what was going on in the area we could and can hardly believe what people have gone through. As luck would have it one of my best friends was scheduled to get married in the Bahamas last Saturday and we found ourselves battling cancelled flights and delayed trips until we were finally able to head south on Thursday. I was in the wedding and so it was so important for me to be there for my friend. The wedding was at Atlantis and so we found ourselves on Paradise Island for four days. It was a beautiful wedding in an incredible setting and I am so happy we were able to make it.
Well, those of you that know me know that I live and breath design and so I would just find it impossible to not spend a little time - no matter where I am - in a fabulous interior. We were given the heads up the that Ocean Club (one of the hotels in Casino Royal) was just down the beach and so we decided to share our last night's dinner with some old friends at Dune Restaurant. Part of the One & Only hotel chain (see post here), the restaurant is everything you would expect from a beach setting, but with a twist. The wood has been limed and ebonized, there was lots of leather, and everything was calm, funky with a little edge! Designed by world famous designer Christian Liaigre, this was an interior that I will remember and reference for quite some time.
