Paley's Paradise

Good afternoon, Happy Wednesday to you. How is everyone's week shaping up? Mine seems to be flying by and I have been rather busy around here! 
While perusing through my blog roll today I noticed over on India Hicks blog one of my favorite images of socialite Babe Paley at her Round Hill, Jamaica home by the famed photographer Slim Aarons in 1959. Immediately 2 of my favorite mentions so I scrolled through for more information. It seems that India has just returned from a Jamaican mini vaca and that she was able to get her relax on in this iconic home of Paley's. 
Unfortunately for me, things don't always stay the same (50+ years) and the groovy house as seen below has been transformed into....


this serene, white, island chic retreat. Don't get me wrong, I would definitely stay here, twist my arm, but I really love the look of Paley's swanky island oasis. What do you think? Would you like to step back in time or do you prefer the new Round Hill, Jamaica home?

Both beautiful! This may seem like a cop out answer but I would love to mix the two. Truly the best of both worlds.
