I recently came across Oprah’s Hawaiian Home on Oprah.com and had to share this beautiful creation with you. Oprah’s personal trainer, Bob Green, found the homes gorgeous property a couple of years ago after a 15 year search through Hawaii for the “perfect spot”. The house is located in a remote up-country region on a moss covered hillside facing the ocean.
What was originally supposed to be a quick remodel quickly turned into the ultimate Hawaiin Homestead. Oprah flew to Hawaii with her decorator Ellie Cullman and thus began the creation of this beautiful home.The house was stripped to its basic structure, the staircase moved, ceilings were raised, new French doors installed throughout, and a gorgeous veranda was wrapped around the whole house.
The wraparound porch looks as if it’s been there forever. The pretty outdoor furniture is from Weatherend.
Opera can step directly from her bedroom into the veranda to enjoy the breathtaking view.
The ceiling design in the kitchen was inspired by an old quilt.
The horses on the hills surrounding the ranch motivated the theme for the living room. A late-19th-century American weather vane in the shape of a galloping horse, spotted on one of Oprah and Ellie’s shopping trips, became the centerpiece of the room.
The table in the dining room was brought in from an old pool house. The chair coverings and bright walls make the room a cheerful environment.
Everywhere you look throughout the house is something of interest and quality. It invokes memories of Oprah’s rural American past.
