Caribbean Dream

 

The open elegant spaces of this dream house were inspired by the client’s love of grand hotels, the relaxed elegance of Caribbean vacations, and years of dreaming and collecting clippings.  With cues from colonial architecture of the West Indies, Dietsche + Dietsche combined neo-Classical proportions and island simplicity to create this waterfront retreat, which became the inspiration and television-pilot set for Grayson Manor on the ABC series Revenge.
