I have long had a love affair with Hawaii and am constantly inspired by it's
unbelievable beauty. Truth be told there's probably not one Hawaiian Style in the
bunch that I don't love, but a particular favorite of mine is a brief moment in time from
about 1966 to 1974. This is my "Modern Hawaii" Much of it is in the Brutilist
style - it's a style that consists of stark contrasts with beautiful, almost shockingly violent colors against a backdrop of blacks and whites. It's is also VERY organic:
Lava Rock, Ocean, Lush Vegetation and Wood.
It's very heavy and incredibly light.
It's Polynesian meeting Japanese,
and it's Edgy. To take you on this particular journey let's
begin with a little Don Ho circa 1967, so why not click on to 'Tiny Bubbles'
and begin the scroll down - to see this Amazing Style!
