The Big Island certainly has a look and ambiance that is all it’s own. The colorful flowers, towering palms, and intricately laced jungle leaves have inspired interior designers to incorporate Pacific Polynesia into the decor of beach properties not only in Hawaii, but up and down the California coast and in tropical areas all over the world. Here on the Big Island, the best homes seamlessly integrate the natural environment with interior design concepts. Whether you’re looking for ideas on how to style your place or simply want to see some truly incredible design work, here are a few of our favorite houses on the market today that feature epic island style interior design.
This Bayview Estates home’s Tigerwood hardwood flooring brings the textures of the Hawaiian jungle right into the living room. Much of the furniture, the ceiling fans, and decorative accents feature typical Hawaiian grass weaving. The assortment of potted plants, Koa wood vases, and decorative, floral-print accent pillows allow residents to feel as if they are relaxing in the backyard while in the comfort of their own home. We love how the row of plants above the ocean-facing wall bring depth to the room. For more images, click here.
