Love the wide floorboards & the shelves over the doorway piled with straw hats ~ very British Colonial ~ Finally found it ~ This is India Hick's house in the Bahamas, so, indeed, it is British Colonial!
British Colonial India back in the days of the Raj there was no air conditioning so the heat was intense. Therefore veranda's and paddle fans, shutters all were a must have. High ceilings and airy rooms were the most comfortable. Photo: robbiewalden.com
British Colonial style incorporates traditional themes mixed with a little tropical and a punch of exotic. Back when British colonists traveled to tropical climates they ended up merging their styles from back home with the realities of warmer weather.
