loving these gorgeous blue bookshelves. Having built in bookcases all the way up to the ceiling creates extra space. Avoids clutter, because you have enough space to store your favorite magazines, books, etc.
Bahamas home of interior decorator India Hicks, decorated in French Caribbean style. To achieve this look, use elegantly curved dark wood furniture, decorate with quirky island touches such as shelf of straw hats, rattan birdcage.
