I started this blog as a way to feature ideas and dreams about our dream house in Hawaii. We just purchased the property, and we intend to build our home in a few years. In the meantime, I needed a dream space--a place to make visible my hopes and plans. My husband, cats, and dog are all looking forward to the day I retire, and we pack up our belongings and move to our spiritual home in Hawaii.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ohbz3zfLVkM

I love to cook, and I dream about my new kitchen and what I want it to have. I hope to have a white cabinets, granite, steel appliances, and bamboo floors--classic and clean. Here are some pictures that capture some of what I hope we can achieve.
I love the farm sink and the french casement windows too!
I love the color of this tile. It reminds me of my favorite beach at Kua Bay. I would love to find something in this color family and use it in the bathroom and in the kitchen.
And I love this as an idea for a kitchen island--not to matchy matchy. I am a big fan of traditional style, but I like the idea of mixing this with more industrial lighting to give it an edge. It's tough to find antiques in Hawaii. I might have to find something on the mainland and ship it!
