French Polynesian Design Awaits You.....

French Polynesia is undeniably one of the most Beautiful places on Earth -
Well defined by their exquisite surrounding landscape it certainly could not
come as any surprise that this is the driving inspiration to their Design Style.
It's highly informal, its light and breezy, and intense with the colors of the ocean,
floral and fauna.  A highly magical place that I think you'll enjoy, so why not begin
with a little music from "South Pacific", then scroll on down!

.....It's about intense blues in every fantastic shade imaginable

Vintage 1950's photo - love the collection of basket pendant lighting!

                             .......It's as simple as the color and texture of Breadfruit
The island of Pinagbuyatan
