Messel Green


The colour green is a strong theme of Barbadian gardens. Messel green to be precise. Oliver Messel was an influential designer of properties in Barbados during the 1960s, both interiors and exteriors. He produced a particular colour green, which is seen in many properties still today on the island.

Nick and Richard were extremely privileged to be given a private tour around the beautiful Fustic House and gardens and were bowled over by the lush beauty of this hidden west coast gem. The lush plantings of exotic foliage enhance the paradise feel and offer plenty of opportunity for cool retreat. A real treat indeed!
