Lofty Pursuit

A Wailuku apartment gets a modern makeover—and it’s just what the doctor ordered.

Tim gave the guest bathroom a contemporary update with gray porcelain wall tiles, black Brizo fixtures, a custom wood vanity, integrated sink, and nearly invisible walk-in shower.

And lights are everywhere, from a sculptural chandelier to elegant wall sconces to motion-sensing switches in the bathrooms and walk-in closet. Conspicuously absent are doorknobs; Tim prefers the ease and contemporary look of magnetic door pulls. As for the television? It is cleverly tucked away in a custom motorized lift cabinet, so that the eye is drawn, instead, to the meticulously curated collection of artwork and vintage and modern furniture.

Equal parts cozy and convenient, the newly renovated loft is a perfect fit for the family of three: Tim, Errol, and their playful Havanese puppy, Koa. And they won’t soon forget the serendipitous chain of events that led them there. “We were in the right place at the right time,” Errol says. “And now we are exactly where we want to be.”
