Intracorp focused on this Hawaii project to incorporate tropical lifestyle, with North American interpretation. ("perfect blend of contemporary and traditional island living" by sales material)
Private tropical gardens, infinity pool, fitness pavillion, barbeque alcoves, grand open-air lobby... Most welcomed feature out of all, in my opinion, is Storage space for bicycles, kayaks & surfboards! Imagine how many condos go without, and they have to live with self-storage facility (or good friend's garage or backyard).
Real estate and interior trends are most likely cyclical. Remember Avocado-green appliances?
Last few years, dark cabinets ("wenge wood") were "in", and many kitchen designer and HGTV shows featured many, many episodes. Recent trend I hear now is "White is back"! Oh well, we just need to live another decade that one day it goes back.
