CHRISTIAN LIAIGRE'S ST BARTS

If I were going to build a house in the Bahamas, or any beach setting... this would be the inspiration. Christian Liaigre's St. Barts getaway. He has been going there for 30 years and inspiration came from the simple beach cottages that existed on the island back then. He set out to build a 'simple fishing hut'. 

Simple, spare and well edited.  Straightforward bones, beadboard and sisal. With a touch of elegant. 
My kind of fishing hut.
