Away From Here: Tom Scheerer
I’m having one of those weeks where I feel this strong tug inside to just pack my bags and run away to a beach somewhere. Maybe for a week, maybe for good. When life gets to be too much, the thought of living more simply by the shore, writing from a chair with a ocean breeze, really makes me think twice about the lifestyle I’m living. What I would do beyond blogging on a Bahamian island, I don’t know. Perhaps make shell necklaces and sell them on the beach or learn to braid hair? Whatever, I’d be on an island. What I do know, is that designer Tom Scheerer has got it right. Working part time in NYC and part time on the jaw dropping, “I-would-sell-my soul-to-go-there” Harbour Island in the Bahamas, his work is part city slicker, part beach chic. But not in the way you think…
What I really appreciate about his style is that it doesn’t scream “BEACH!!!!” with kitschy signs, neon colors and shoreline thingamajigs scattered about to remind you that YOU ARE AT THE BEACH!!! No harm in having those things, but his more subtle approach using items that relate to the location but could be used anywhere, is…well…just lovely.
This Bahamian saltbox cottage has me with one foot out the door headed to Logan…
Until then, I guess I’ll just have to slather on India Hick’s new Harbour Island inspired body line from Crabtree & Evelyn and dream about it. The packaging of her line is pure inspiration! Love it!
