I want to live here–duh!

As much of the country is battling record breaking cold temperatures we here in southern California have yet to see any sign of winter.  So each of us will have different reasons why we would want to live in a house like this.  And how does one even begin to describe all the reasons why they would want to live here?

This home is located somewhere in the Hawaiian Islands and is/was for sale.  Can you imagine having breakfast, lunch and dinner at this table?  Here are just a few reasons why I could very easily move into this home:

  • Walls of windows that literally disappear when open.  Hawaii has very few bothersome insects so keeping those stackable doors and windows open all day long would be a dream.
  • Lack of window treatments on those windows…who needs them?  I am assuming the architectural overhang shades the rooms when the sun hits a specific spot.  Otherwise, there would be no need to block that view.
  • Large areas of green grass are very soothing to me.  I can almost smell the cut grass and feel the coolness underfoot just by looking at this picture.
  • All that beautiful Koa wood on the window trim and ceilings.
  • Who needs artwork on the walls when you have that view?!  I am not a particular fan of the Asian influenced art and objets shown but I am sure they are important to the homeowner, which is what artwork is supposed to be!
  • Round dining tables are my favorite.  In fact, that is what I have in my own home.  It makes for much better dinner conversation and, in this case, is a nice contrast to all the sharp angles in the architecture.  This table appears to have a built-in lazy susan which makes for fun and easy meals with items accessible to everyone at the table.

How about you….ready to enjoy a bit of aloha in this house?

About hayniedi

What about me? In a nutshell I am a middle-aged interior designer and freelance writer, mother of an amazing 27 year old daughter, wife to my semi-retired lawyer husband and step-grandma to two delicious babies. From my earliest memories I have been fascinated with interior decorating and love to share my passion for beautiful rooms with anyone who will listen. Join me on this blog as my husband and I enter our empty nest years and move back into the first home we bought when we were first married that has been a rental for the past 15 years. I will share our experience with remodeling as well as other ideas and thoughts that I hope will inspire you.
