Haute Caribbean Living @ Sundown VillaSunday, December 13, 2020
Life on a tropical island is oft taken for granted by those who live it every day. But when a space is curated by a team who relishes laid-back barefoot elegance for visitors who have dreamt about the perfect holiday, you hit every mark!
The owners were desirous of a villa that was at once haute but buffed with comfy-chic Caribbean appeal.
Philippa Rousseau, who led the design team, paused long enough at the main house that comprises five bedrooms before moving to the four-bedroom cottage and making the final decison: “We knocked out a few (maybe more than a few) walls, reworked the main entrance in a very grand way... upping the ante on the word welcome and incorporated marble!” Eschew all thoughts of the ubiquitous, shiny, polished type. Consider instead, a whisper in lieu of a shout and a tumbled finish, buffed rather than polished.
Linens in natural colours were used and lots and lots of canes and rattans incorporated.
