Our favourite kitchen from another angle. Safari style meets French perfection in this beautiful Colonial home in St Barts, in the French West Indies. Using a restrained black and white colour palette, the high ceiling, exposed beams and large windows create a feeling of wide open space and relaxation. We will be featuring a very similar kitchen soon on The Rhapsody!
