Bungalow 9



Rarely do I walk into a shop and feel truly floored by all the beauty, especially in a home decor boutique. This was not the case at Bungalow 9. I found myself loving everything in the store. After drooling over the rustic yet modern pieces, I was thrilled to find out that Lisa, the store owner, was working. We had a great chat about the boutique and her decor inspirations. I instantly trusted her opinion, and can't wait to ship one of her beautiful pieces to my home.

Lisa has successfully taken island living and modernized it in Bungalow 9. Since I have returned home, I have enjoyed reading her blog to find out more about the inspirations behind her style. One cool fact is that the name Bungalow 9 comes from her parents who moved to Kauai and bought a bungalow. Shortly thereafter, nine of her family members moved to the island. Together that makes Bungalow 9!

Thanks for sharing your passion and being so kind, Lisa!
