I can’t stop dreaming of the beach. (Remember this stunner?) So when I laid eyes on this gorgeous beach home, I fell hard. Matt and Kate Holstein, a couple from Aspen, Colorado, recently remodeled their dream beach house for themselves and guests on the Caribbean island of St. Barts. Kate is a photographer with a passion for interior design (and it shows!), and her husband Matt has a background in construction and real estate. Together, they revamped their idyllic Villa Palmier with the idea of bringing the locale’s pristine outdoors in.
This home is exactly the kind of escape to the Caribbean you’d want: at just 1,000 square feet, though the space is small, it’s open and bright, and because everything is designed with an open view to the sea, it feels vast. This is indoor/outdoor living at it’s finest, with two of the walls opening up entirely to the outside. And the best part? It’s actually a vacation rental.
The ceilings, the mostly white rooms and oversized slip-covered sectional sofa, the rustic wood touches, the straw floor cushions; it’s a beachy paradise.
The gold touches in the kitchen keep the space feeling modern and a little bit edgy.
Never have I ever so badly wanted a dining room space with a view. (And I’ll forever love that Reclaimed Wood Dining Room Set.)
The white trend is continued throughout the airy house.
And the location … well, it’s in St. Barths. Enough said.
