Lifestyle
Stylish Design for your Caribbean Home

One Caribbean Estates met with Marketing and Design Studio Manager, Janine Hinkson, from Dwellings Design Studio in Barbados to bring you tips for designing and furnishing your Caribbean home.  Dwellings is known for its bespoke approach to design and top quality service and furnishings. The One Caribbean Estates’ office in Holetown was designed exclusively by Dwellings and we love hosting clients in our stylish new space!

OCE: What can clients expect when working with the Dwellings Design Team?
JH: What makes Dwellings a different service from a standard design firm is that we work very closely with the clients and ensure they are involved every step of the way so they really understand what they are getting. No project is too small or too big. As we have the store as well, clients can get an understanding of the quality of furnishings from the suppliers so they can feel confident in what they are getting and trust that we have the experience in handling all the behind-the-scenes processes of shipping and delivery, which can be very complicated for anyone trying to handle it themselves.

The design service itself is also complimentary, so clients only pay for the furnishings they select. Clients can feel confident in the quality and value of the service they are getting.

OCE: Are there any new design trends and/or color schemes that you’re seeing in 2017?
JH: Every year there is always a new trend and a Pantone colour of the year that really guides a lot of the pieces of décor and accessories. For 2017 the Pantone colour is ‘greenery’ and as the name implies a beautiful fresh green that is perfect for the tropics. Playing off of this, we will be sure to see lots of textures and organic elements like cork and terra cotta for a natural feeling space. While we incorporate trends into our assortment, we also always try to create timeless style in our designs so clients can enjoy their décor for years to come.We also always have to consider that we are in the Caribbean and some trends are here to stay. Clients love the beaches and we see that requested a lot in the décor, beautiful blue and green hues, coastal inspired décor and light finishes of woods to make a relaxing seaside space.Our professional Estate Agents can assist you in setting up a meeting with Janine and provide you with tours showcasing homes featuring some of Dwellings’ best work in Barbados.
Our world revolves around you…and designing your Caribbean dream home.
