Modern Luxury Hawaii

Leave it to Philpotts Interiors to create smart, sensual spaces that combine sophistication with ease. With an innate sensibility for finding just the right look for island homes, lead designer Marion Philpotts-Miller is making this boutique studio’s reputation ever the better. Look for no further example than her Balinese dream of a residence out in Laie.
In perfect step with the Philpotts philosophy, the design merges indoor and outdoor spaces. While modern touches abound, savvy play with natural elements lend the home an ineffable timelssness. Get lost in the almost mystical chic, for instance, of the sculptured bowl of fire that appears to stand on guard in front of the infinity pool. Of course, nothing compared to firsthand experience. Luckily, the curious can book a stay-cay in the posh dwelling (lavishgetaways.com/haleohana). One problem though: you’ll need to check out.
