A traditional Caribbean style villa is not always exclusive of contemporary décor. A fine example of this can be found in this charismatic residence tucked into Saint Jean’s hillside.
The interior décor cleverly combines all the charms of West Indian architecture with the most fashionable furnishings, most of which are by famed French designer Christian Liaigre. It will come as no surprise that beautiful dark exotic woods, one of the designer’s preferred materials and also a staple of island architecture, are found throughout.
In each of the three bedrooms, elegantly crafted furniture shines under high-peaked West Indian ceilings and the exotic sway of immaculate mosquito netting. Three private baths distinguish themselves with fine mosaics and recessed sinks, undoubtedly an echo of old colonial homes, whilst modern amenities assure absolute comfort.
The terrace finds relief from the sun thanks to the surrounding vegetation, including a stately coconut tree, integrated directly into the deck. Here, an enticing mirror pool is yet another reflection of the harmony achieved between classic Caribbean style and modern chic.
