I’ve sung praises of The Modern Hotel before here, and so needless to say, did not hesitate to return again last month for a quick getaway. Its whitewashed minimalist decor is an ideal backdrop for the otherwise color-saturated lush tropical isle of O’ahu. A few of my favorite design touches are below as well as some gloriously indulgent breakfasts after the jump.
We indulged our appetites every morning at Morimoto where everything was splendid and beautifully plated. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?It was late April, but a violin playing Santa made an appearance nonetheless. After months of grey Seattle days, a tropical Hawaiian holiday was just what we needed. I, for one, am already plotting a return. Aloha.
