Breezy Barbados Dining Room

Traditional Bajan touches and a seaside palette set the scene for a laid-back Caribbean feast.

Homeowner and designer Colette van den Thillart chose to play up the beachy vibe in the dining room of her Barbados vacation home. Green-striped slipcovers over teak furniture complement the lush greenery outside and a white ceiling and drapes make the space feel fresh. The gingerbreading is a traditional detail on island houses.
