As homeowners begin to seek all things natural and organic, luxury real estate developers are beginning to design their new projects with luxe natural elements and features that replace typical art. From walls of limestone art in Turks and Caicos to a driftwood chandelier in Anguilla, these island spaces cater to nature lovers and art appreciators alike.
Hand-crafted by a local artisan, stone walls bring natural art to each Capri-style cottage. Extending from the exterior to the interior of each cottage, the walls will be built by hand, much like an artist creates his art. These one-of-a-kind homes are selling fast, with nearly 50 percent of them already sold in just four months. Prices range from $600,000 to $1.5 million.

Situated between St. Lucia’s famous Piton mountain range, this resort traded traditional exterior siding for natural untreated timber. The natural timber extends throughout the residences through layered sliding timber screens and private timber pool decks, which offer stunning 360-degree views.

As you enter Zemi Beach House, you are greeted by a chandelier constructed entirely of island driftwood. Situated on Anguilla’s East End, Zemi Beach House was created with the island’s natural environment in mind. Designed by Architect Lane Pettigrew, the luxury boutique hotel and residences blend modern clean lines with classic Caribbean building details.
