Ralph Lauren made history as the first fashion designer to launch an entire home collection in 1987. Here a window display in Boston (snapped by my husband last month).
So let's recap his seaside themed collections, then take a peek at his island getaway home. In 2010 the Ralph Lauren Le Grand Hotel Collection was a dramatic interpretation of a French Riviera Hotel in a palette of sophisticated navy blue and white.
Last year's La Plage Collection was inspired by the strip of shoreline just beyond the Grand Hotel steps. Classic summer style seaside blue and white.
With an artful mix of chic and rustic. My favorite!
This year it's close to home. The 2012 Ralph Lauren Rosecliff Collection is all about the relaxed romance of a turn-of-the-century seaside manor. Rosecliff is located in Newport RI.
I love the nautical inspired lanterns from the Rosecliff Collection!
And a peek into Ralph Lauren seaside home in Jamaica. You can take the full tour at Architectural Digest. Crisp whites, blue, and natural materials.
Ralph Lauren and his wife, Ricky, bought the Jamaican villa near Montego Bay, some 20 years ago. "It feels like paradise," they say. "We go there as often as we can escape."
