Ralph Lauren’s Jamaica

So far Jamaica has been amazing, I’ll do a full post on Round Hill and our time here, but for today I just wanted to share a little more island style. Ralph Lauren owns a giant villa here at Round Hill and yesterday Andrew and I got in a kayak to try to go scope it out. I’d seen these images of his home in Architectural Digest before, but now seeing the actual location I had to post! No Ralph sighting yet, but I’ll keep you posted if anything changes!

Look at this pool!

This was the view we got from the kayak yesterday- that is the pool and poolhouse- up the hill is the BIG house. Mama mia!

Love this all white look!  The rooms at the hotel were done in a very similar style designed by Ralph.

Love the pops of blue against the white and lush greenery!

I’m reminded of Nathan Lane in The Birdcage here “One does want a hint of color!”

Like a lot of Carribean homes, there is a blend of traditional English antiques and more modern styles as well.

Indoor/ outdoor living is where it’s at!

Currently sleeping in a bed like this and couldn’t be happier.

The other pool up at the main house. You know, because TWO POOLS.

Perfect lounging spot.

Here’s a way to get Ralph’s Carribean look- complete with his favorite white paint Tibetan Jasmine (apparently all his stores are painted this color).  Blue, white, pink, gold, natural weaves and wood- a great mix of texture and color that can work in any home, not just a Jamaican palace!
