Lavishly illustrated, Caribbean Houses (Rizzoli $60) is a comprehensive interior design book that explores the rich history of architecture that exists throughout the Caribbean. Author and West Indian decorative arts scholar Michael Connors examines the venerable houses that remain as a testimony to the vibrant lifestyle of the islands.

The colorful coffee-table book explores the influence of European heritage on the Caribbean nations including Spanish, Dutch, English, French, and Danish; and the breathtaking photography captures the varied exteriors while providing a rare look into the interiors of the charming historic homes.
