St Barts stunner

The October issue of Coastal Living Magazine just arrived today, and inside I found this beautiful Carribean home. What was once a dark and dated 70's style house has been completely transformed by designer Barry Dixon, to become the perfect island retreat.


  love the door, the colour, the shutters...oh, and the herringbone paving

I know many of you are decorating for autumn/fall, but for those of us in the southern hemisphere who are heading into summer, this looks like the perfect place for a beach holiday. Love it!

  11. Hi Kerri,
    I was totally drooling when my issue arrived as well, what a place, huh?
    Little disappointed with the magazine in general this time, too thin, what do you think?...
