Jean Philippe Piter

If you've ever experienced the magic of St. Barths, I'm sure Jean-Philippe PITER was a part of it.  The island is special to me for so many reasons and I have always loved the beautiful work of Jean Philippe because it so perfectly captures the essence of what St. Barths really is.  His magazine, PURE ST-BARTH was one of the original publications on the tiny island and has maintained its spot as the most tasteful, unique and most read.  To me, its a coffee table book I cherish and collect. As someone who loves homes and design, I know my home is not complete without his photograph hung in my dining area; it makes me happy and never fails to transport me to the little french island.  While his work is one of my essential pieces for my home, lets see what inspires him the most and the pieces he can't live without...
