Blue Verandah is a Jamaican design studio, which
came into being when the founder, Tricia Evelyn lived in the
fishing village of Oracabessa on Jamaica's North Coast. The
name was inspired by the view from her verandah, which looked
out over the blue Caribbean Sea. The tropical verandah of
the West Indies is traditionally a place of rest and conversation,
with sunlight gently filtering in through gingerbread fretwork
and palm fronds. Step off that idyllic verandah and you discover
the richness of the vegetation, the houses, and the people
- the Caribbean lifestyle.
