All it took was a single visit to St. Barts for Matt and Kate Holstein to fall in love and relocate their home from Aspen, Colorado. Inspired by the calmness of the island’s calming Caribbean sea breezes, laid back French culture, and charming aesthetic appeal, the couple purchased a run down beach shack and transformed it into Villa Palmier, a stunning guesthouse that’s all about bringing the outside in and the inside out. I appreciate how its simplicity truly celebrates island life. And I can only imagine that I, too, would instantly be swept off my feet after a trip to this dreamy retreat.
