With Local Materials and Tropical Detailing, the Fashion Designer Dreams Up a Family Retreat in the British West Indies.
“I wondered, How can I bring Bali three and a half hours away?” says fashion designer Donna Karan, who envisioned a simple, modern beach house on Parrot Cay, in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Architects and interior designers Enrico Bonetti and Dominic Kozerski collaborated with architect Cheong Yew Kuan to create the complex—“a marriage of East and West,” Karan says—which includes three villas and three open-air pavilions. An infinity pool sits above the first floor of the main house. Sunbrella fabric on canopy bed.
