A Beautiful View, Inside and Out

2012 February 24

Set on a cliff overlooking Anguilla’s Little Bay, Ani South is one of the two Ani Villas Anguilla, which were designed and built side by side to take advantage of the dramatic setting and provide a truly one-of-a-kind Caribbean vacation experience. That’s why, even with such incredible views outside, the design team at Lee Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership made sure the interior of the villas were just as attention-grabbing.

This includes the selection of lighting fixtures. The majority of the fixtures chosen for the Ani South villa are crisp and white, adding to the overall light and airy sensibility expressed throughout.

The Sitting Room

In the Caribbean, making the most of cooling breezes is essential. So ceiling fans abound in just about every room of the home, both inside and out. A particularly popular choice, making no fewer than three appearances in Ani South, is the Artemis Ceiling Fan by Minka Aire. It’s shown here in the sitting area near the dining room, its fluid form matched by the artwork and burled wood furnishings:

The Dining Room

From the sculptural twists of the Artemis come the asymmetrical stacks of the Le Soleil Suspensions by Foscarini hanging over the dining room table. While dramatic in scale, the Le Soleils yet retain an airy feel. Their stacked rings suggest a formal representation of the sun breaking through the fluffy clouds outside. (Also outside, in the background, you can see the smooth teardrop shape of the Concept I Wet Ceiling Fan by Minka Aire).

The Bedroom

In the master bedroom, another Artemis fan. And for when the sun goes down–and the spectacular view no longer distracts–two adjustable reading lights (looking very much like Madake Swing Arm Wall Lamps by George Kovacs) provide light with which to read and unwind after a hard day of relaxing:

There’s much, much more of this gorgeous project to see, of course. Be sure to check it all out on Freshome.

    LOVE this place! And the Foscarini pendants really add a level of dimension to the room. Thanks for sharing!
