A Hawaiian getaway gets a modern treatment from designer Stephanie Brown.
There’s not a pineapple to be found in this Maui home—but the vibe is still pure vacation oasis thanks to Vancouver designer Stephanie Brown’s modern interpretation of traditional Hawaiian architecture. “The vaulted wood ceilings definitely provide an ‘island’ feel,” she explains. “They help ground the otherwise bright space.”
With the help of architects Weigang Marvick and general contractor Makena Builders, Brown installed rift-sawn American walnut to frame chiselled panels overhead, and then filled the space with modern furniture and decor (like Bensen sofas, a Salari rug and custom coffee tables from Lock and Mortice). The neutral palette offers a subdued, calming backdrop to interesting contrast and layers: laid-back luxury at its best.
