And That's A Wrap!
Our 2017 campaign was filled with dreamy locations to shoot, including the breathtaking vision brought to life by Anthony Ingrao and Randy Kemper of New York's top architecture and interior design firm, Ingrao Inc.
The home was the product of several years of construction, and countless tons of local granite.
We ventured to Saint John to shoot the 2017 campaign - tough assignment!
We're bringing you behind the scenes on our adventure - from our castle in the sky designed by the team at Ingrao Inc, to the white sand beaches of Caneel Bay Resort, the premier vacation destination on the island.
Solenborg Saint John, Ingrao Inc.
The genius interior design gurus of Ingrao Inc created this modern-day castle known as Solenborg in the hills of U.S. Virgin Island, Saint John. Primarily crafted of locate granite, this home is equal parts fortress and palace. Want more? Visit Architectural Digest for an inside look at Solenborg.

Read on as we take you behind the scenes on set in Bermuda. Warning: blue water as far as the eye can see ahead.
Bermuda, located just off the eastern coast of the US (think parallel to the Carolina's), is a British island territory, known for its distinctive blend of British and American culture.
And let's not forget the famous pink-sand beaches, including Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay.
Fun fact: Bermuda was first discovered in 1503 by Spanish explorer Juan de Bermúdez, and became an official British territory In 1707, following the unification of England and Scotland.
