|Elise Yates Interior Designer • Honolulu, Hawaii
“The right place to be.”
Living in Hawaii and traveling to exotic and foreign places has led to a deeper sensitivity and appreciation for how beauty and the quality of the environment affect our mood, productivity, health and happiness.
As a design professional, I know that good interior design begins with communication and truly understanding the need and having the vision to transform space with style and flair that reflects the best use of color, texture, lighting, scale and functionality.
I love the challenge of combining styles or focusing on a particular theme.
My Italian heritage, Southern upbringing and living most of my life in the Land of Aloha have Influenced my design to create spaces where people feel welcome and at home. Uncluttered spaces that function and feel like “the right place to be “ whether at home or in a commercial setting.
With that understanding, a respect for nature, and the environment; and a regard for the budget, the process begins and culminates in simple elegant and coordinated solutions, each unique, and beyond expectation.
