Built on an Island

This summer home was built on the island of Mustique in the Grenadines. Before building began, rocks and boulders had to be dislodged from the cliffside using dynamite and jackhammers .All the hard work was well worth it as the result was this gorgeous view of the turquoise waters, white-sand beaches, and barren coastline.

Perfect Placement

Weather proof furniture to relax in and enjoy the view from the veranda.

Thoughtful Design

Natural materials inspired the home’s exterior palette with walls the colour of wet sand. This pergola adds shade and structure to the pool terrace.

Sweet Sleep

A high, vented roof and ceiling fans keep hot air from building up in the bedrooms. The white paint and fabrics contribute to this bedroom’s cool feeling.

Wide-Open Spaces

The only glass in the house’s architecture is in the French doors to the veranda. The wide openings provide cross-ventilation and expansive views of the ocean from nearly every room in the house.

Relaxing Environs

Another photo of the veranda overlooking Pasture Bay. Maybe I would add a hammock and take a nap listening to the soothing lullaby of the waves.

Have a happy Sunday!
