The ICAA FL Chapter is delighted to offer this unique opportunity to shed light on collaborations within our own membership, many of which are past Addison Mizner Award Recipients, as we announce our 12th annual Addison Mizner Award Call for Entries.

As moderated by Mitch Owens, our three lecture panels, all of which have a history of design collaboration, will discuss the creative process across the professions of architecture, interior design, and landscape. They will highlight their Addison Mizner Award winning projects and others, and talk about their collaborations over the years through engaging conversation and imagery.

Amanda Lindroth Amanda Lindroth
Amanda Lindroth Design
Amanda Lindroth grew up in South Florida and her signature style is influenced by the region’s architecture, climate and relaxed polish. White canvas upholstery, boldly colored prints, rattan, wicker and cane paired with English furniture, and straw matting underfoot are a few ingredients of a Lindroth Design interior.


Amanda’s early career in fashion brought her to New York where she worked for W Magazine and Women’s Wear Daily as a reporter, and later to Europe where she worked as the UK PR Director at Gucci during its renaissance in the 1990s. After relocating to the Bahamas, Amanda began decorating for both commercial projects and private homes. Each of her projects embody the spirit of island living paired with a deep respect for classical design and architecture.

Since its founding in Nassau, Bahamas in 2010, Lindroth Design has become the go-to firm for airy, relaxed design and casual elegance for island dwellers those seeking to imbue a breezy sophistication into their home. Today, the firm has offices in the Bahamas, Palm Beach and Charleston, South Carolina.

In the fall of 2018, Amanda’s first book, Island Hopping, was published by Vendome and features twenty five of her most prominent projects to date, including The Dunmore hotel on Harbour Island and a family cabin on Great Cranberry Island in Maine. That same year, she launched Amanda Lindroth Collection, a line of tabletop and home decor products that has grown to include furniture and two retail stores in Charleston and Palm Beach. The collection and their two shops epitomize Amanda’s lust-worthy aesthetic of island life.

Amanda has a design course with the prestigious Create Academy titled “Design Interiors for Entertaining,” and her work has been featured on the covers and in the pages of the most prominent shelter and lifestyle publications and digital media outlets in the US and abroad. Her second book, titled Island Hopping 2, will be released by Vendome in September of 2024.
