Look of the Week: Stylish Hawaiian Escape

Two New York based chefs bought this Haleiwa, HI home and enlisted designer Michelle Smith's expertise in redesigning it with the theme "Bahamian cottage meets Hawaii". The results are really fantastic - playful and interesting! Here are some of our favorite spaces.

Loving the cabinetry, faucet, and floors.
 Bedding, curtains, and headboard? Yes, please.
 This penny tile used all over has such an incredible impact. But the vanity is the best part.

 A little bit of Hawaiian kitsch. An admission from the designer: "Before our first trip to see the house, my client said she wanted ‘Hawaiiana,’” Smith says. “First, I had to Google it. Then, I had to figure out how we were going to do ‘chic Hawaiiana’ if you will.”
Punchy green in the laundry.

And that ocean air... paradise!
