Anyway…outside of fabulous interior design at Round Hill (check out this great write up by Cote de Texas and this by us last week) we’re also totally enamored by the Round Hill logo…

Excited to share a fun, preppy island project of Locust Valley based designer Meg Braff’s today…just three days before Anne jets down to the same resort, Round Hill in Jamaica, for a last hurrah babymoon!  We’re totally obsessed with Braff’s design for this private villa, and especially the pink retro-style umbrella above.
