KWD Fuses Hawaiian Spirit with Mainland Luxury
For a busy San Francisco family, Kristi Will and her team created a Kona-Hualalai vacation home embracing the tranquil Hawaiian lifestyle. Bracketed by black basalt rock and white beaches with an azure sea beyond and coconut palms above, the spacious house melds simple island architecture with luxurious mainland living. For the symbiotic interior and exterior rooms, Kristi focused on the timeless materials of teak, walnut, rattan, and bronze. With a sand and sunset color scheme, the tropical villa features elegant but practical furnishings. Inside the staggered pavilions KWD paired Newell Design Studio casegoods and custom upholstery, illuminating spaces with Holly Hunt light fixtures. On the outside lanais and pool area, iconic McGuire lounge furniture entices the homeowners to pause and enjoy paradise.
