For as close as the Bahamas is, I actually couldn't find a lot of Bahamas inspiration in the shelter mags. I would have thought that there would be more, but it does seem like one name keeps coming up if I did manage to find a photo here and there. Tom Scheerer is an interior designer, who in addition to other commercial projects, seems to specialize in beach houses. The pics below are from a project called "Bahamian Salt Box". Clean, simple, chic, and very welcoming - but at the level that a beach cottage should be. Everyone always says in interviews that they want a house where the kids can run in with sand on their feet, this is one of the few that actually looks like you could do that. The guest bedroom is particularly charming with the canopy bed, and funky footed lamp. Now how can I become a guest at said Salt Box?
