For nearly two years now, Kelly Wearstler's commercial projects have been a popular topic on this blog. I think many of us are intrigued by her evolving style, and we take inspiration from her work. So I thought you might enjoy a little update on one of her latest far-flung endeavors, Viceroy Anguilla.
Last month she unveiled the resort's model four-bedroom villa on Barnes Bay. (Villas and townhomes are available for purchase as second residences.) As you can see above, the architecture is clean and contemporary, but Wearstler decided to balance this with organic materials and global references.
She says, "“In designing the property, we used textiles and techniques from all over the world, including hand-carved wood pieces from Asia, hammered metalwork from India and beaded artwork from Africa which offer a visual contrast with the modern architecture.”
Personally, I'm always fascinated by the connections between her residential and commercial work. Right off the bat, I noticed what I call the "glamorous swing." A piece used outdoors at her own home, the Hillcrest Estate, below, and now at Viceroy Anguilla.
