Have a fantastic Festival holiday!


We wish you a fantastic Festival holiday this month and hope that however you choose to spend it, it’s a memorable occasion.

Things We Love adds to the exciting carnival fun this issue with some cool products to raise enjoyment of this mini-vacation time.

We review Caribbean-designed homes and what makes our region’s architecture so different from other nations. The vibrant colours and use of tropical-inspired themes, reveals the superficial elements, but what about the intricate details? Find out in this, our cover feature.

Habitat shows us colour, expressive artwork, and ornamentation in the perfect Festival house gathering and the Villas & Views feature demonstrates how to fully use a skilled paint job to bring out the best in our homes.

Internationally renowned architectural firm OBMI present the attractive and ever-growing trend of ‘bathing outside’—whether it’s a shower or a bath, it’s a unique and revitalising experience that’s rising in popularity.

Yacht Spotlight introduces us to Hanikon, advertised in alternative media simply as ‘Stylish. Spacious. Silent.’ This luxury vessel lives up to her promotion with a light, airy appearance that breathes freedom.

BVI Maritime History Tales takes a unique turn as Geoff escorts us through his methodology for historical research of the Virgin Islands.

Delish grants us some exquisite recipes, falling in line with Festival holiday. Plantain Cups with Barbecue Pork, Chickpea Fritters with a Curry Mango Mayo, and Shrimp Ceviche are on the menu. Please feel free to share your finished dishes on Instagram #delishVIPY as we love to hear from you.

And finally, Style & Beauty gives us some functional products and apparel to help with the intense heat. Summer is great, but we definitely need a little help at this time!

Wishing you enjoyment of the LAND, SEA, and LIFE in the Virgin Islands.

PS – We say a fond farewell to our editor Pearlette Wintz, who has contributed her excellent sense of style and beauty to our product page. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours
