is it just the designer in me or does anyone else ever wish to get rid of everything they own & get a fresh start? (pic. simply groove)

new loves. during my visit to oahu, i got to meet one the lovely team behind so'mace.
bungalow 9 has recently teamed up with them to carry the inspiring designs of kaypee.
so'mace mixes modern lines & elements with island design. you can find design. furniture, art. accessories.
& great pillows. i hear there's more goodness coming. must say there's lots of talent on our little islands.
good design just a hop. skip. plane ride away.

owens & co...

one thing i love about small stores is seeing the perspective of others. owen's & co is a delight. it's located in the midst of china town in oahu. owner missy owens has styled creatively & layers the store with cool little luxuries. the industrial space provides a cool backdrop for all her finds. furniture. textiles. gifts. & more. my must have a simple clay pot filled with succulents.
