Get ‘em before they ‘sale’ away! These top 10 Anthropologie Home pieces are a great value for your dollar PLUS I’m dishing on design details you should be looking for when shopping for furniture online.
It all starts with a floorplan. When you move to Hawai’i from the east coast (from just under 2700 sqft. to a 720 sqft. rental), measuring and planning is truly the only way to figure out what the heck you can bring, what needs to be stored and what needs to be sold (so you can buy a few new pieces that will fit properly in your new habitat)!
Who knew it’d be so hard to find inspiration images of moody, dark, coastal spaces. Why is this not a thing? Let’s make it a thing! Of course white, airy, beach house spaces have a place in my heart too, but let’s also explore how using rich hues can be just as welcoming as bright whites — even if you live in Hawai’i.
Raise your hand if you’re eyeing black plumbing fixtures for your next home project. As we continue down our own rabbit hole of house hunting, I’m looking for potential and envisioning everything from its new floor plan to fixtures.

So we live in Hawai’i, does that mean I need to decorate with blue and seashells? Even I (the designer who has a love affair with textural neutrals and black) asked myself this question after moving here from the east coast. You know what I decided? If you’re not feeling blue walls, THAT’S OK. You can still love and feel like you belong in this tropical paradise while selecting items for your home that reflect the many colors of YOUR soul.
