Posted on by Erin | Earnest Home

I’m so excited to have Erika on House of Earnest today sharing her favorite home details.  Erika has such an eye for style, and her home certainly reflects that.  It’s been featured in Glitter Guide and although there are so many amazing design elements, these three details are what make Erika feel right at home. 

small shop details: royal hawaiian hotel vintage print

Aloha, it’s Erika from small shop! I’m so honored that Erin asked me to share three details in my home that make me smile. Because I grew up in Hawaii, it always makes me smile and will always hold a special place in my heart. And while my own aesthetic is not necessarily tropical, I have still found ways to incorporate little elements of my homeland into my home:

The first is an old photograph of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki — an icon from a classic era. I can almost hear the waves lap and the palm trees sway when I look at this!

small shop details: vintage hawaii coasters

I found these vintage coasters on Etsy.com. The black/gold combo could not be more perfect in my living room. And they’re just so fun.

small shop details: waikiki beach morning

We took this photo one morning on Waikiki Beach when our daughter was 18 months old. We were on California time and up early before the crowds. It was the most peaceful I’d ever seen Waikiki, and the perfect way to start our vacation.

Mahalo for having me today Erin! Hope you enjoyed these three little details. I’m off to listen to some slack key guitar now. ;o)
