Today Caribbean style decorating and design are on my mind. This is our last full day at The Playa Grande Beach Club in the Dominican Republic. We have today and half of tomorrow then we have to go home back to reality. Typically when vacations come to a close, I am ready to go home. Not this one.
This morning best of friend AM, MR and I all took a lovely long walk down the secluded beach. What a wonderful way to start the day.
This boutique resort is just a charm. Imagined and designed by Celerie Kemble of Kemble Interiors and her husband investment manager Boykin Curry, things here are delightfully whimsical, very chic and extremely relaxing.
One of the amazing areas at this boutique resort is the common clubhouse. Filled with locally sourced ceramic tiles and custom local made copper metalwork, the clubhouse sets the stage for an island dream vacation – Caribbean style with a twist. Wicker furniture, and all of the carved wood transoms and ceiling moldings and tile floors are signature island style. Celerie and team (hi Jennie) amped everything up a notch making this place feel magical. The indoor outdoor clubhouse room is the first thing guests see when they arrive on the property and it is perfect in tone for the setting!
My mother is from Haiti so I have grown up seeing books around the house that are all about Caribbean architecture and style. I feel very comfortable here.
I love it at Playa Grande Beach Club. I am not going home. I am not going home. I am not going home. Having a bit of a tantrum. Not a soul can hear me though…just the beautiful surroundings and the crashing waves.
I think everyone is in the ocean again. Must catch up with the group!
P.S. I would highly recommend a visit to this resort. It is a dream vacation…really. I feel very lucky to be here with best of friend AM, her husband JE and MR. AM and JE are even more lucky…they own a house and a guest house here! Will be visiting again – no doubt.
