When photographer Kate Holstein isn’t traveling the world shooting for publications like Martha Stewart Weddings and Cereal Magazine, she and her husband Matt stick to a pretty sweet routine: 8 months at home in Aspen, Colorado followed by 4 months on the beach in the French West Indies. The couple fell in love with their beachside property when they were vacationing together in St. Barths, a tiny Caribbean island known for it’s distinctly French culture and pristine white sand beaches. Together, they remodeled Villa Palmier inside of just three months to create a beautifully simple family retreat. The space is fresh, modern, airy, and (lucky you!) available for rent when the Holsteins aren’t using it themselves. Kate (along with adorable new daughter Zoe and pup Bugaboo) invited us over for a long lunch at Villa Palmier, and we seriously might never leave.
