Ways to Buy Sparkling Turquoise Bermuda
One of the things Bermuda is most famous for (besides Bermuda shorts!) is the Sparkling Turquoise colour of our waters. This month I visited a number of local designers to see how they incorporate this Bermudiful shade into their work.
Amanda Temple is well know for her whimsical wedding photography and portraits, but recently she has been capturing the textures and tones of the island in collectable fine art pieces. I love the idea of collecting eight or so smaller pieces and hanging them together. You can view her work on her website www.amandatemple.com
I am the designer behind TABS (The Authentic Bermuda Shorts) and have also been inspired by the colour turquoise. For me, I colour matched the shorts to the queen parrotfish, which are plentiful in our waters. This colour is going to remind you of Bermuda every time you put them on! Available in men’s, women’s and swim shorts from www.tabsbermuda.com and A.S. Cooper’s & Sons.
I recently found Laura Smith’s AMAZING glass work on Instagram and have been obsessed with her work ever since. It’s stunning and perfectly captures our waters. You have to see her work at Masterworks Gallery (which is also a must see) or on www.laurasmithglass.com. Is it too early to ask for a Christmas present?
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy your time in Bermuda and get a chance to see the island from the water, the colour really is spectacular.
