La Colina – Bunny’s Caribbean Retreat

Posted by

Translated as “the hill,” La Colina overlooks the beautiful Caribbean sea.  Bunny Williams and her husband John Roselli, built this classically-inspired home in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  It was after visiting their friend Oscar de la Renta there throughout the years, that they chose this location.

Modeled after the raised cottages of the American South, Bunny enlisted the help of classical architect, Ernesto Buch.

The master bedroom has the most amazing turquoise Venetian plaster walls.  Designed for outdoor living, each bedroom has French doors which lead onto the veranda.

The crisp white gentleman’s bathroom walls are contrasted nicely with an ebony chair and mahogany towel stand.  The interior shutters are such a clever touch. 

And remember the beautiful Greek temple pool house at Bunny’s Connecticut home?  Here’s her coastal version.  Margarita, por favor!
