Christian Liaigre St. Barts Home Amazing Bedrooms – When famed French designer Christian Liaigre wants to relax with his family, he heads to the island of St. Barts, where he has taken the idea of a simple beach shack to new heights of sophistication.
The fisherman also brings the family the catch of the day, whether it is mahimahi or fresh langoustines, which Liaigre and his wife put on the grill as the centerpiece of casual dinners with friends. “When I come here I try not to work, because, to be honest, I work a lot,” he says. “For me, this place is about relaxation—swimming, cooking, and playing with my son. And even if the house is small, we spend most of our time here living outside.”
While it can get quite hot on the island, one thing Liaigre won’t abide is air conditioning. “It’s not necessary,” he says. “We have plenty of fresh air from the sea. That is part of the charm of coming here, to sleep with the doors open and feel the wind on our bodies. We have everything that is essential: air, space, and light.”
