December in St. Croix — the island is green again, and holiday festivities are in full swing, especially after last weekend’s annual Boat Parade in Christiansted.
We’ve just spent our last week in St. Croix for 2015 and the winter, as we prepared to welcome our first guests of the season to SolMates! It has been a lot of fun updating the furniture and kitchen wares to make the home more comfortable. We’re very grateful to the talented designer, Paige Moses Lewin, of Tess & Ted (tessandted.com), who helped us to develop a fun, easy décor that we hope will help you kick-back and settle into the island vibe. Thanks, Paige!
It’s a lot of work settling into a new home – but not so hard when you can drop into the pool or gaze at the sea or stars whenever you need a break! Our next goal is to hang more paintings and photography from local artists. Have any suggestions? Maybe we’ll even be inspired to create something ourselves? 🙂
To all our guests this winter: we hope you enjoy SolMates as much as we enjoyed getting it ready for you! Please share your experiences, thoughts, and even photos with highlights from your vacation with us here – we’d love to hear about your visit!
And if you’re considering a visit to SolMates: please let us know if you have any questions! We love to talk about the place, St. Croix and the US Virgin Islands!
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year, everyone!
Pat & Tom
