Stunning home, crisp, clean lines, plenty of light, airy & very tastefully furnished, love the seating area on the Landing with the glass stairwell. A 'splash' of pink on an outside wall, door or window shutter would have completed the colour scheme perhaps?
Sadly the original 'before' is more typical of a lot of Caribbean houses.
You may want to look up a house called 'The Dream' in Barbados for 'modern day Caribbean' I think you just GOOGLE it?

Oh forgot to say love Royal Palms - very majestic if you'll forgive the pun? But the do grow to enormous size, typically 120' tall & 2 1/2' in dia. Hope where they are sighted allows enough room to grow fully?
Foxtails or Fan Palms would have been my choice.

The before and after pics are truly remarkable. This is so much more than a holiday home. It is a very chic, boutique style hotel, that I would so like to spend some time here.

Stunning!
If their photography is as visually exciting as the design of this house, then they have reached the pinnacle of their art. No doubt it is! Both must be very rewarding?
