Blue Hawaii Spirit
When it comes to tropical vacations and inspiring locales, it’s hard to top Hawaii. America’s 50th state offers bountiful inspiration for decorating and creating a restorative lifestyle. Here’s how to bring the spirit of Hawaii to your home.
Maybe it’s the aqua coastline, the famous Elvis movie or the even more famous cocktail, but the term Blue Hawaii makes perfect sense. No matter which island you visit, you can expect turquoise waters stretching to meet an even-bluer sky.
While the word “Aloha” is best-known for meaning hello and goodbye, it’s also the word for love and peace. Native Hawaiians will tell you that “Aloha” represents a unique concept for which there is no equivalent word in the English language. It’s a way of life best described as: being patient and kind, in unity and harmony with your real self, kind to all life forms, and humble.
For most of us, island living is only experienced on vacation, yet it’s a feeling that lasts far longer. If you’re looking for fresh inspiration to update your home décor, go beyond clichéd floral prints and leaf patterns and choose furnishings that capture the essential beauty of tropical destinations such as Hawaii. As you surround yourself with meaningful furniture and décor, you’ll be on your way to capturing the spirit of Aloha.
