what’s in your beach bag?

When you hail from Auckland, New Zealand, every day is a beach day. “We are surrounded by shoreline here. Heading to the water isn’t so much an outing as it is a part of our daily routine,” explains fashion and accessories designer Karen Walker. Most days Walker pops over to her local city beach, Thorne Bay, for a morning coffee or evening swim—or sometimes both. “It’s my spot: an out-of-the-way stretch with white sand, gentle waves, and heaps of pohutukawa trees that produce the most beautiful red flowers. Lying under them is heavenly,” she says. Walker’s deep connection to Auckland informs the very essence of her designs, she says. “There’s a casualness to this ‘beach town’ that shows through in the comfort of our pieces—no matter how chic,” she says.

the keys’ sweetest gift

If you go to the Keys and don’t have at least one piece, have you really gone to the Keys? Key lime pie is that icon born of the history and agriculture—not to mention the sweet tooth—of Florida’s equally iconic archipelago. With a buttery, sweet crust (usually graham cracker) below and a celestial topping (meringue or whipped cream) above, the soul of the dessert lies in its velvety custard suffused with the sweet-tart kiss of Citrus aurantiifolia. The Key lime. Cousin to the hardy, widespread Persian lime, the golf ball–shaped Key lime has more seeds, more aroma, and a thinner skin that matures to a pale yellow color. Its trees—like Florida Keys residents themselves—love a sandy footing and don’t mind the heat, which is why a savvy settler named Dr. Henry Perrine…

a new caribbean queen

Puerto Rico’s San Juan is all about surrender: to its tawny, velvet beaches and cobalt waters, to the polychromatic riot along its historic cobblestone streets, the nostalgic allure of piña coladas, and a determination to remake itself in the wake of Hurricane Maria. And there’s no better base camp for surrender to all the charms of this capital city than Serafina Beach Hotel, a stylish newcomer that brings charming sass and swagger to San Juan’s beach-blessed Condado district. The joys of Serafina begin with architectural lines (and signage) that nod knowingly to the midcentury provenance of a previous San Juan heyday, and then jumps assuredly into modern shoreline chic in the sunny vaulted lobby, where outsize murals hand-painted by local artist Sofia Maldonado echo the thriving public art in the nearby…

When the view is pure art, as Andrew Howard puts it, everything else needs to take a back seat. That wholesale surrender to the view—in this case, the high-wattage, opulent seascape of the Bahamas—became the Jacksonville designer’s cri de coeur and the mission for an English family of six seeking to update their beloved tropical escape on Elbow Cay in the nation’s Abaco Islands. It also informed the palette. Howard confesses to usually using more color, but here employed quieter, organic hues—in particular, soft turquoises and corals—and natural textures. “There are big beau-tiful ocean views from every single room,” he says. “I didn’t want to do anything that distracted from that.” A second challenge was to ensure that the design didn’t stifle the need of a big family to, well, move. “We…
