A Sweet Escape


The past few days have been punctuated with a grey, dreary drizzle, and this home in the Bahamas by Tom Scheerer looks like the most perfect place to escape. It seems to have all the necessary elements for a relaxing getaway...


A charming backyard in which to linger over a meal and a bottle of wine with friends.


A lovely fireplace by which to warm yourself should the night air get chilly.


In the morning, you will have a plethora of straw hats and towels to choose from on your way to the beach.


When you return to the house in the afternoon, you can toss your iPod and keys on the console.


In the living room, you can finish another chapter in your book before heading upstairs to the bedroom.


A most perfect place to take a nap.


Once you are rested, you can grab clothes out of the dresser,


And head into the bathroom, to soak in the tub as you prepare for your evening company to arrive again.

I would love to spend time in this fabulous home. How amazing. Have you booked your ticket yet?

When I go to bed tonight I will be dreaming of that canopy bed. Sigh.

PS: How is the move going?

Recently found your blog via the brown button and really enjoyed all your fun posts and photos.

Am in the midst of moving and got to say those photos are lovely, hope my new hall looks a bit like that one day when we get all the boxes out of the way.

Oh I've been fantasizing about getaways to perfect little places - this completely fits the bill, and beyond!

Too funny... I've been collecting his images for a future post! If I do it, I'll have to link to yours!

Love love love this elegant laid back style. My Mom's family is from the Bahamas and we have spent much time on Harbor Island growing up... I know his style blends in perfectly and doesn't look too decorated for this pretty island.

please sir said...

Oh so lovely interiors...can I please escape there forever?

citysage said...

Um, yes please! When do we leave?

I'll just pack a bathing suit and some flip flops. And a sundress. Who needs real clothes in a house like this?

Hi Courtney,

It was nice to meet you too! I could def. use a little trip to the Bahamas, and that cottage looks perfect!

I have to agree, that is probably the most perfect place to take a nap. =)

After two brief days of sunshine we're back to the dreary weather again in Houston. Can I escape with you?

It was so lovely to meet you last weekend. I'm glad you have moved to this city. Hopefully we can get together more often. Until then, I'll continue to read your beautiful blog :)
