Your style—whether the clothing you wear, the car you drive, or the artwork you collect—is a reflection of you. And your house is no different. In some regions of the country, architectural style is singular. But in Hawaii, you’ll find traditional single-family homes, sprawling ranches, kama‘aina and plantation styles, modern construction, or a blend of historical design with current sensibilities.
Those blends, like the one featured here, are identifiable by sleek, clean lines, minimalist elements, and traditional details. The principle of modern design is that form follows function. So instead of ornate details like those on a Victorian painted lady, you’ll find neutral colors, basic shapes, and streamlined details. Modern home decor follows suit with neutral or muted colors, linear patterns, and understated textures.
Put your own spin on modern style with a story in your next home, today.
