One of my favorite occasions is when work and play intersect in a perfect crossroad. This perfect cross-over has happened for my Mom and I. We have been invited to help in the staging of Villa Palmier on St. Bart’s for an eight page photo spread that will appear in 2016’s Summer French Elle Decor magazine. This fabulous opportunity has been afforded to us by the home owners and my dear friends, Kate and Matt Holstein.
This is my second visit to Villa Palmier. It is tucked into the stoney slopes of the Island and overlooks Anse Des Cayes beach.
The home is decorated with a clean modern elegance that still captures casual island living. With a living room and kitchen that literally adjoins an outdoor pool and sundeck, happy guests feel like they are living in a paradise tree house.
Quaint small restaurants, patisseries, sandy coves and turquoise blue water are found at every turn in the winding roads. The house is in the perfect location, just above the airport and equidistant to the harbor in Gustavia and the town of St Jean.
