Summer’s Coolest Tropical Home Accessories in Hawai‘i


Hello, my identify is Brie.  I’m a serial redecorator. Indeed, I can acknowledge it. And, fortunately so!


As my partner can attest (the very poor man receives dragged by means of toss pillow aisles on the typical), the décor in my residence is eternally in a condition of flux—a new season, a new thirty day period, a new week, really, is purpose plenty of for me to change issues up. Luckily, scouring the Islands for neat new buys is element of my task.


Here’s the very low-down on what I have been obsessed with lately:

Antidee Lē‘ahi Ceramic Pots

I just lately manufactured the move from Kapahulu to ‘Aiea, and just one of the factors I pass up most about our previous community is having Diamond Head just a stone’s toss absent. So, stumbling upon community potter Dee Oliva’s sweet small pots formed just like Lē‘ahi—clay‘ahis, if you will—made me nostalgic in the most effective way. Its crater is the ideal spot to nestle a cheery air plant or two.

My Mānoa Eco-friendly Tea Lemon Soap

With the ridiculous sum of hand washing we do these days, it is really worth the splurge for a beautifully hand-crafted soap that can rework that sink time into mini times of zen. My Manoa’s hottest bar has been hand-milled to be prolonged-long lasting with the look of a rustic river stone. Its white Kaolin clay leaves skin supple and sleek, though the lemon important oil evens out pores and skin tone and the antibacterial green tea, sourced from Mauna Kea Workforce Farm, has antioxidant that combat harm from totally free radicals.

Atelier Apothèkē Single Fin Botanical Oily Holders

I started getting into urgent bouquets this summertime as a way to maintain my wedding day bouquet, so of study course these dreamy stained-glass numbers from Atelier Apothèkē by Zephyr x Tide caught my eye. Photographer-artist Ciara Torres forages for wildflowers on the Significant Island and then encases them in stunning handmade frames that can either be hung or dress up a tabletop. Her fin variations offer you nods to the sea, but you’ll also obtain sunlight, moon, feather, department and geometric silhouettes in the mix. A lot of even aspect shelves for holding important oils, or hooks or loops for jewelry and propagation tubes.

Aloha Chopsticks

You’d be amazed how hard it is to come across stylish chopsticks, considering each community has a couple of in their utensil drawer. So, when I arrived throughout Aloha Chopsticks’ graphic-print sets at the Retain It Uncomplicated zero waste keep in Kaimukī,  I promptly snapped them up. The decide on-up sticks feature punchy hues and island-influenced motifs, these as monstera, hibiscus and banana leaves, plus they’re designed from sustainable bamboo.

Really do not be fooled by its nondescript exterior—tucked back again, off on the side of a simple, unassuming developing next door to Marukai, Dial Electric powered Provide is a little hidden gem of a lighting showroom.
