Chasing the Blues Away-Ultimate Beachside Makeover Cerulean Villa, Anguilla, British West Indies

With their recent makeover of Cerulean Villa, architect Deborah Berke and interior designer Scott Salvator have transformed a 20th-century getaway on Anguilla’s Barnes Bay into a 21st-century beachfront paradise with stunning ocean views and charming interiors in shades of azure and white

White Elephant Hotel, Nantucket

White Elephant Hotel, Nantucket

A summertime classic on Nantucket Harbor.

THE WHITE ELEPHANT, NANTUCKET, MASSACHUSETTS (20 January, 2015) – The White Elephant Hotel has been a radiant beacon on Nantucket Harbor since the early twentieth-century.
