Aloha all! Today I wanted to share pictures of the most charming little beach cottage we rented during our vacation last week. We’ve stayed at so many over the years but this one has been the favorite so far. I loved so many of the design elements incorporated into this plantation style cottage just steps away from the beach in Poipu on the sunny southern shore of Kauai.
I requested permission from the owner to photograph and feature it and she was kind enough to share sources. The owners live on the island and the husband is a builder. The cottage was so well designed from the pitched plank ceilings to the folding doors to the lanai. It was filled with coastal inspired decor and art, beautiful light fixtures, hardware, and a gorgeous kitchen too.
Both bedrooms featured floor to ceiling tongue and groove plank walls painted a creamy white, ceiling fans for circulating the warm island air, woven shades paired with breezy sheers, and seagrass woven headboards from Pottery Barn.
I loved the combination of finishes in this coastal kitchen: white cabinets, black honed granite countertops, chrome fixtures and a beautiful blue green mosaic tile backsplash from Pacific Tile, a perfect fit for a beach cottage! The floors are smoked antique white oak from Du Chateau flooring.
