Incredible Ikat

Ikat [eeh-kaht]: a dyeing process similar to tie-dye. The dye is applied prior to the threads being woven to create the final fabric pattern or design. 

Ikat has become a favorite of mine. I love the bright colors and bold patterns that brighten up any room. Check it out!

Chevron AND Ikat?! LOVE

The bright Ikat is awesome here!

These chairs are such a pretty color

"Chalk It Up" To Great Taste

Chalkboards are back... at least chalkboard paint is! Take a look at these beautiful uses of chalkboard paint. Step aside dry erase boards, chalkboards are back!

I also love the message on this board

Hello Blog World!

Here I am, world... an aspiring designer from beautiful Hawaii, with a love for interior decorating, family, friends, fun, happiness, life, and all good things that come with it.

I've been wanting to start a blog for the longest time and am finally doing it! Why not, right? I can sit for hours, reading my favorite interior decorating blogs, sketch up ideas for an empty room, or simply daydream of decorating my dream home.

So as I sit here, drafting my first blog post with a head full of ideas, I'd like to welcome you to Lilikoi Kanoe: a place where you will find inspiring posts about decorating, do it yourself projects and anything else that is creative, fun and beautiful. I hope you enjoy my blog!
Since I am introducing myself, I thought I'd post a picture of where I am from, which serves as the inspiration for this post.

Here are some elements in these rooms that remind me of this beautiful place I call home.
Rich, bamboo shades, paired with a bright, green plant.

The hanging light fixture and these flowers put the final touches on this room.

Look at these pendant lights! Need I say more?

I may be biased, but teals and turquoises are two of my favorite colors. Don't they look amazing here?

...and last but not least, GRASSCLOTH! It speaks for itself.
