I had mentioned before how I appreciated the design elements that the previous designer had applied to the Beach Cottage…..
The owners of the Beach “Cottage” own hotels, and the decor looks as though it had been decorated with the same sensibility…
The family who are renting it, did not like the pictures, and wanted a more “homey” touch.
They prefer more authentic vintage Hawaiian art work…Like this Produce sign…
Prints that showed the Hawaiian Lifestyle….
The new occupants had collected these classic prints that were on the face of vintage menus from the cruise ship, abourd the S.S. Lurline, circa 1950’s.
The vivid colors, and the Aloha attitude is easy to see the Spirit of the inhabitants….
The couple wanted a Modern aesthetic, so we had the prints custom framed in black frames with cream white matting.
The framer added xeroxed copies of the inside menu to the back of the prints and put it in a clear envelope enclosure.
I suggest spending a little extra to get your cherished pictures and artwork professionally framed. You may love them so much that they will be hanging on your walls for the next twenty years!
This is what I would call Hawaiiana with a Modern twist!
Do you think it looks more homey? Do you have some artwork that you want framed?
I have more to show of the Beach Cottage, that I will post next time. Thanks for visiting my blog. Please sign up with your email so you don’t miss a post.
