Spring Break: MAUI !

First, let me apologize for not posting more often this week! I have been down with a very tenacious bug . At the same time I have been trying to get enough work done to be able to take off next week for Maui. Top that off with the hubby's car breaking down ( he gets my car and I am without wheels!), an ortho appointment for one daughter and another coming home early from school with her own bug, and it has been a more than hectic week. And I still have to pack, clean the house for a sister-in-law who will be staying while we are away......and who said anything about being ready for Easter the day we get back?!

Well...at any rate, I thought I would leave you with some of the beautiful images from the design team of Marion Philpotts-Miller, Charles De Lisle and Jonathan Staub, also known as De Lisle, Philpotts, and Staub Interiors, with offices in San Francisco and Hawaii.


I believe that all of these images are homes that Marion Philpotts has done in Hawaii, and if not, they certainly incorporate her flair for tropical design. (Not all locations are listed on the website.) Isn't that the most luscious color for a fireplace surround?!

The three photos above are from the home of the designer herself, Marion Philpotts-Miller. Marion is also the Senior Designer in the firm owned by her mother Mary Philpotts McGrath: Philpotts and Associates. (Check out their website for some more amazing Hawaiian homes.)








I will take loads of pictures to share when I get back. I'll miss you!

Aloha!

Katiedid, Maui is my favorite place on earth. Have a wonderful, restorative trip.

The bleach wood walls are the exact same walls in the beach house of a Los Aptos friend of mine who bought a William Wurster designed beach home in Aptos, CA. Her husband hated the dark redwood walls and concoted a wood bleach strong enough to do that to the walls (and nearly kill all the workers) I love the look. Have fun!

That porch with the black columns looks dreamy.

Lounging on that back porch would be divine!

You lucky girl! Heading to Maui sounds divine (not all the other bad stuff like the bugs and ortho appointments and cars breaking down...). We went to NYC and while it was fun, Maui would've been MUCH more relaxing. We had the same kind of week prior to leaving, I think it is Murphy's Law.

Happy sunbathing!

Wow Katie - What a hectic week you've had. I hope you feel better! Have a great vacation in Maui - I look forward to seeing some beautiful photos of your trip.

Great selection of images above. There were so many rooms I really liked! The last photo totally puts in the tropical/vacation feel.
