Congratulations Holly!



Philpotts Interiors is honored to announce our senior designer Holly Boling Ruiz was nominated by Theremador’s top dealers in Hawaii and the Pacific Rim to participate in Thermador’s special Design Council that was formed just three years ago. This council gives their input and recommendations on Thermador’s new product designs and brand. The design counsel includes industry leaders from America, Germany and Turkey. Thermador has named 2013 the “Year of the Designer”. 


The council took two-and-a-half days of intense brainstorming to review prototypes and design ideas for their 2015-2016 products. Council members were asked to comment on all design and parts of their appliances. You may view the profile of the council members at Thermador’s website.


Other lines of their product include Bosch, Siemens and Gaggenau.

The Royal Hawaiian asks Facebook fans...



Which guestroom is your favorite and why: The traditional and ornate Historic Royal Ocean or the pristine and contemporary Royal Beach Tower Oceanfront? 


The results are mixed but most guests favored Historic Royal Ocean Junior Suite. Some fans even offered to sleep in the lobby or patio. View the original post on the Royal Hawaiian Facebook page.


"Like" us on Facebook and feel free to comment on which guestroom is your favorite? Our favorite is the award-winning design of the recently completed Queen Kaahumanu Suite. Images for that project are coming soon.

HGTV: Merging Fashion + Interior Design for Fashion Week 2011


HGTV's online editor, Kayla Kitts, presents her very own mash-up of Fashion and Interior Design in preparation for NYC's Fashion Week. Kayla found inspiration in an exotic print dress from New York and Quebec fashion house, L.A.M.B., and combined the texture, color and energy of our very own renovation of The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort


Here is what Kayla had to say...


While most of us are just beginning to pull out our cardigans and fall layers from storage, the fashion world already has their eyes on next spring’s hottest design trends. That’s because it’s Fashion Week in New York. Starting today, Sept. 8, through Sept. 15, hundreds of the industry’s top designers will showcase their spring-summer 2012 collections. Unfortunately, my front-row tickets to the L.A.M.B. and Alice + Olivia runway shows were “lost in the mail,” so I can’t make it. So I’ll just have to make up for it by finding home decor that speaks to me and my sense of style. Why not blend who you are and how you dress right into your living room, bedroom and kitchen? Check out some of my fave designer clothing finds for fall and their inspiring interior counterparts.


My home is very eclectic and full of hand-me-downs, treasured pieces and vintage finds. My after-work, weekend wear is the same way. I like mixing jewelry, colors and adding layers.


Does your wardrobe compliment or clash with your home’s interior? Have you ever bought a blouse or dress and thought, that perfectly matches my couch?
