A Clean and Inviting Island Home

After months of silence, I am back on the blog.  Lots had happened in the past few months. My oldest son graduated from high school. We spent two months traveling in the summer (possibly topics for future posts). We also have been quite busy with a little project in the past six months: we bought a house and renovated it from head to toe.  

The property is located in beautiful Kailua, my home town, and when we bought it together with my friend Debbie and her husband Brian, it was in less then perfect shape.  In fact, I called it "the icky house".  It was in dire need of help.  After six months of renovations, the house is all done, and looks perfect, inside and out.  

The inspiration for the house was a clean and neutral beach look, with driftwood colored floors, grey tiles and creamy white walls (Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee).
