British West Indies Style is divided by island, from the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, British Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Nevis, S. Kitts, Antigua, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Mistique, Grenada, Barbados, Trinidad, Tobago, to the less-traveled islands of Bequia, Dominica, British Guyana, and Montserrat. Author Michael Connors discusses the history of the British islands and the unique designs and styles found there during both the colonial era and the 20th to 21st centuries. The 250 photographs taken especially for this book capture the indigenous materials, detailing the hardwood furniture, linens, glassware, antiques, terraced gardens, walled courtyards, and tropical fruit orchards. This colourful new book explores the architecture and crafts of the region and looks at the design and color of many of the British islands' most beautiful private colonial, traditional, and modern homes. It looks at design and color both inside the home and out on the streets--giving ideas for the use of local materials, painting and stenciling techniques, environment-enhancing design, and indoor-outdoor living----all of which are being found more and more all over the world.
