This St Lucia Island within the Caribbean is a superb destination to create a perfect home. The any hilly sites afford superb views of sea, and the climate ensures that any garden gets to be a bountiful and colorfull tropical splendor. Who owns this house around the coast was inspired to commission its building by his chosen architect’s own house in Barbados. The owner’s mother, a seasoned designer of Caribbean interiors, was readily available to suggest the choice of colour, furniture and decoration, ever mindful with the dependence on simplicity.
Open walkways, guarded by wooden pillars and handrails, curve around the site, allowing cooling sea breezes to enter the rooms. Outside beamed ceilings look appropriately casual and just about everything is white; built-in seating and far from the furniture is painted white, and white fabrics have been useful for cushions as well as on the beds. The only colour to be seen, independent of the natural wood tones from the bedsteads and a few carved Asian furniture, is really a riot of yellow-and-blue tiling in the bathroom, shiny copper pans in the kitchen area and blue-and-white table-settings.
