House Tour: Tropical Style


Since moving to S.E. Asia I have been so fascinated with chic tropical style. It is definitely a design challenge to achieve a look that is sophisticated and stylish but also site appropriate and pays homage to warm weather surroundings. Sadly tropical interiors often look kitchy - think tiki torches and fishing net decor - ahh! So naturally I was thrilled to discover this lovely home in Hawaii. The tropics certainly have a place here through the lush use of clear colors, open air architecture, and organic textures! 









I especially love the airy kitchen and the numerous outdoor living spaces! 
What element is your favorite?

All of these are amazing but that back porch is to die for! I am a sucker for stripes!

I like the outdoor spaces the best too. How awesome would it be to have that pool or that porch in the last picture with the hanging lanterns? That must look awesome at night.

Love the mix of tropical outdoors and contemporary with a touch of tropics interiors...

Oh the kitchen looks divine.

These photos are so beautiful and inspiring! I especially love the pops of bright colors against a more neutral backdrop. Gorgeous!
