INSPIRATION is the Word of the month


If one word summarises this issue, it’s ‘inspiration.’

This month is crammed full of fresh, encouraging content for our readers, commencing with our exclusive feature property and cover piece, Stowaway. This attractive BVI residence ‘lives’ to make sure that its owners enjoy Caribbean lifestyle to its optimum point all the time. Situated in a position that permits perfect panoramic views, easy access to the beach promises indulgent, relaxing living.

Next up, Things We Love offers a natural take on accessories for property interiors from well-known BVI retailer House, followed by our Top 10 Kitchen Design Ideas feature to make the heart of your home the peak of function and aesthetic pleasure.

Alongside our regular articles, we’re happy to introduce Habitat, our new feature with art and design expert Debi Carson. We open this page with ‘Greenery’—the home decoration style of the year—and some concepts for home owners to contemplate for their renovations.

VIPY Stylish Spaces enters its final month (plus two weeks in April), allowing individuals the opportunity to join the Virgin Islands’ most prestigious competition – who will present the idyllic, unique spaces for the various categories in this year’s rivalry? You can make the difference.

Yacht Spotlight takes an alternative energy spin this issue for the eco-friendly minded among us. We view an innovative amphibious boat and its technologically advanced contribution to sustainable development with Iguana Yachts’ electric drive. BVI Maritime History Tales remembers the visionary Captain Kenneth Faulkner; an Anegadian whose legacy is still celebrated as motivation to those that recall him.

Delish strives for a healthy order in ‘going green’ with some nutritious and tasty food recipes in store and VIPY Style & Beauty offers yachtie life themed apparel and accessories for this season when the regattas really get in gear. Finally, our new feature Creative Expressions—looking at all things artistic—debuts with photographer Adam Crook and a fresh view of the BVI through his camera lens.

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

PPS – VIPY would like to apologise to architect Michael Helm for the omission of credit for his architectural marvel that is Katitche Point Greathouse in the Dec 16 /Jan 17 issue. As one of his many phenomenal works, it was a pleasure reviewing the residence.
