The South offers many gems, perhaps none so glistening as the Golden Isles, nestled on the Georgia coast. Find them on the map midway between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL. The mainland of Brunswick is complimented by four barrier islands: St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island.
A favorite destination for weddings, bird watchers, beach lovers, hikers and boaters, the Golden Isles offer a unique experience on the Atlantic seaboard.
Cinda’s favorite spot, Sea Island, was founded in 1924 after a causeway was built from the mainland, making motoring to the island possible. Howard Coffin, of the Hudson Auto Company, built the Cloister – a Spanish Revival mecca designed by Addison Mizner, and opened it in 1928. The resort was an instant hit and has remained so to this day – hosting everything from championship Golf Tournaments to the G8 Summit in 2004. For a fabulous pictorial tour, take a peek at the book, Sea Island at Night, which will have you wishing for a visit soon.
Cinda was inspired by the white sandy beach, and azure water of Sea Island, which is apparent in our Casablanca Sky Blue colorway. The elegant Spanish tile is reflected in the pattern with it’s beautiful kaleidoscope of blue, coral and pink set against a sea of watery blue.
