A queen-sized platform bed dominates the master bedroom. Crafted from slit-and-woven rattan and accented with braided leather,
this West Indies-influenced piece stays in keeping with the breezy architectural spirit of the house.
Above the bed, a collage of oil paintings by local artist Janet Powers reflects her view of this island's marshy landscape. Other sculptural pieces by Janet hang over a green-and-white cabana-striped chair.
Design consultant Linda Woodrum custom-designed tie-top draperies to give privacy to the dressing alcove and to frame the windows. Choosing from a large variety of solid and patterned fabrics, Linda notes that this sturdy weather-resistant material, traditionally used outside, works just as well indoors.
