Description
What visitor to the Caribbean has not been entranced by the beauty and spirit of its tropical islands? In Caribbean Style, more than 600 spectacular full-color photographs and an illuminating text re-create the houses, gardens, and lifestyle of this enchanting region.A trendsetting book that combines travel and design, Caribbean Style offers a previously unseen view of the islands of Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Barte le my, Antigua, Nevis, Montserrat, Barbados, Haiti, and Jamaica. The book includes information on island vegetation and colors, plantation houses, town houses, popular houses, contemporary houses, and gardens. In addition, the Architectural Notebook provides plans and information on different types of houses on the various islands.;;;;;;;; These pages take you from plantation manor houses with gracious verandahs that catch the mild, cooling winds to brightly painted native dwellings adorned with imaginative wood trim; from colonial plantation gardens with rows of majestic palm trees and winding water canals left from earlier days to simple town-house gardens with bright patches of bougainvilleas. Caribbean Style explodes with an intense profusion of images and colors. With this vivid portrait of the Caribbean, you will almost feel the soft breezes, inhale the fragrance of tropical flowers, and luxuriate in the warmth of the sun."
