Recent Project – Staging New Model Homes at Kulalani



Kulalani #1605 – Three (3) Bedrooom Model – Large open concept Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen


Who doesn’t love checking out new model homes while out for a walk, bike ride or late afternoon drive? It was with that in mind that we partnered with Stanford Carr, LLC – the developer of new gated resort community Kulalani – to stage and decorate two new model homes.

Our goal was to create and finish two brand new model homes to high standards of comfort and luxury. We took a somewhat different approach to staging model homes, with a focus on furnishings and designs that please a wide range of people. We wanted these homes to appeal to people looking to retire to the Big Island as much as to people seeking to invest in a vacation rental home with occasional personal use.

As we undertook this project, we selected high-quality furniture and details that would suit owners, retirees, and renters alike. These include: quality wood furniture, comfortable high-end mattresses, and sleeper sofas for extra visitors, as well as outdoor furniture that invites you to spend hours outside on the Lanai.

Here are photos from each of the two model homes:

The “Butterfly House” – Two Bedroom – Model B3 – Kulalani #1604

We enjoyed transforming this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath into a wonderful, bright home. The model includes a large main floor with open concept Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room. With soft lavenders, blues, and fuchsia accenting light neutrals in the furniture, it reminds us of an elegant summer home. How better to escape the dreary weather of mainland winters than to slip into a bright, tropical Hawaii home?



This home also boasts two upstairs bedrooms with large closets and full ensuite baths. The Master includes a private lanai and space enough for your own Yoga retreat.




The “Beach House” – Three Bedroom – Model B2 – Kulalani #1605

Families love the large three (3) bedroom B2 home design.  Whether its the large airy open concept living room, dining room and kitchen, the huge ground floor Master or the big wrap around Lanai with private grill this home has been a very popular and affordable model.


We had fun with some of our guests little girls putting the sea shells in the lamps in the master out on the big Lanai table.   They did a great job of creating ocean styled lamps.

Hopefully when visiting the Big Island you will get a chance to checkout these homes.


While the “Beach House” (#1605) quickly went under contract to purchase, The “Butterfly House” (#1604) is still available. Even after these models are sold, we can help work with you to design and decorate the home of your dreams. For our homeowner partners, we offer turnkey services, including: finding the perfect new home or resale, design & decorating, and”geeking it out” with home electronics. We are pleased to offer these services and more to help establish your home as a successful vacation rental when your family and friends are not staying there.
