Kona Retreat

We designed the interior to be a quiet, eclectic mix of authentic Hawaiian influences, loosely and lightly re-interpreted. 

The architecture was inspired by the Paniolo high-country ranch vernacular, modernized so the interior effortlessly unfolds to the outdoors. You live a little differently when you’re in vacation mode, and the house indulges that inclination. The furnishings and groupings invite lounging, savoring, and napping in great comfort.

Indigenous materials and motifs honor the setting and the island’s history. We designed moldings and armoires with carved patterns, and an oversized pair of daybeds wrapped in grasses, inspired by antique Hawaiian mattresses.
