St. Barts Bliss

On the eve of our daughter going to the Caribbean on holiday, I thought I’d feature one of my favorite islands. St. Barts is a tropical paradise delivering spectacular scenery, an ideal climate, and Caribbean charm at every turn. A volcanic island of just 10 square miles, Saint Barthélemy, or St. Barts as it’s often abbreviated, is completely surrounded by shallow reefs, with over 20 beaches featuring white sand and clear blue waters. The locals take great pride in their island, reflected in their strict building laws, where the color of the roofs must be kept to a certain palette of just red, white, green and grey. St. Barts is a French island, which means the most mouthwatering pastries and amazing cuisine are available beachside.

The home below, Villa Palmier is owned by Kate Holstein, an extremely talented photographer, and her husband Matt. The couple wanted their house to reflect the quaint and peaceful charm of the island.  Villa Palmier is actually available for rent and worth taking a look at!

    White White White. Love it. It’s amazing the simplicity of this home and yet so homey. The placement of three hats and a bag is great. Can’t forget the adorable little dog.
