Clad with brick flooring and thick white walls, each spacious room, including the chess lounge, is highlighted with vibrant colors, light fabrics, and images of the tropics interwoven into the décor.
Reid converted the structure’s original entry hall into the dining room with an elongated, rustic table complemented by antique-style mirrors, porcelain busts, and woven fish basket chandeliers.
An area housed between brick arches and the entrance hall now serves as an open-air hallway clad with a small seating nook and bar.
Neighboring the courtyard, an intimate terrace lounge references tropical West Indies décor with wicker furnishings, jewel-colored pillows, and bright blue cushions.
Bright, modern bathrooms are decorated with local artwork and claw foot tubs.
