Tropical Paradise

Talk about a dreamy destination … this looks amazing! 
Not just the stunning Caribbean island of St Barts, but the beautiful Villa Palmier … 
it looks everything that an island destination, home away-from-home should be.

Matt and Kate Holstein, an American couple from Aspen, recently remodeled a dreamy beach house for themselves and guests on the Caribbean island of St. Barts. Kate, a photographer with a passion for interior design, and her husband Matt, who has a background in construction and real estate, jointly revamped their idyllic Villa Palmier with an emphasis on bringing the locale’s pristine outdoors in. A covered structure with a peaked, painted metal roof provides 1,000 square feet of floor space completely open to the air on two sides. That square footage is doubled by the property’s exterior decks and gardens. They finished the house in a modern, organic style with a neutral color palette to invoke a sense of serenity. The retreat offers a harmonious lifestyle, a place for family and friends to reconnect with each other, nature, and escape the modern, fast pace of life.

A tight three-month renovation deadline proved challenging, as most materials and fixtures had to be shipped from elsewhere to the island. But with the help of the expert local property manager, who knew how to get things done, the family managed to carve out their own airy niche with eclectic finishes while maintaining the breezy feeling characteristic of the area. Everything about the island is small, quaint and aesthetically pleasing, there are no traffic lights, big hotels, or cruise ships — something quite unique in the Caribbean.
