"We love the results! 

Tiare and her team did an excellent job with design, furnishings, art and accessories for our new beach house. She was very professional, great to work, offered fantastic ideas and solutions to all aspects of the project.

Steve McGillin, Property Owner, North Shore Oahu, 2023

"She is hands-down one of the best interior designers and creative artists we've ever worked with. My partner and I have been working with Tiare and her team for over the last 15 years. She brings the highest level of communication and dedication to each project, bringing every client's dream to life."

Brent Shaffer, Contractor, Hammerhead Builders, Oahu, 2024

"We love working with Archipelago Home!  Tiare and Ola are wonderful to work with. Every home has something different that makes it special and the Archipelago Home Team really know how to capture the best parts of a home. From the moment we take on a new project they are available to navigate the initial design. From conception they execute the project with great attention to details, new vs vintage vs reupholstering furnishings, artwork and accessories carefully selected, as well as their own personal design craftsmanship when needed  (you know those tough to find on island or on hand specialty items).

Katrina Galvan, Luxury Property Manager, Oahu, 2023

"She made our dreams come true. Archipelago Home is incredible! We are absentee owners and were only able to visit the project every six weeks or so. Tiare handled the entire project from start to finish: the design, furnishings, accessories... everything! She made the project easy and stress-free. And now we have a beautiful vacation home to relax in! She made our dreams come true and we are beyond appreciative."

"I'd recommend Tiare to anyone doing a project in the Hawaiian Islands

My goal in buying an older 2BD/2BA on the Gold Coast was to completely redo all windows, furnishing, fixtures, walls, lighting and art work. Living in CA and having this as a second home, it looked overwhelming, until I met Tiare. Tiare has a stellar reputation. She took the ball and, with her team, got my project over the goal line timely and in style. Her communication was immediate and progress reports were detailed. I would recommend Tiare and her company to anyone doing a project in the Hawaiian Islands.

Larison Clark, Property Owner, Honolulu, 2023

"Their work speaks for itself.

Our home is located in beautiful Kailua, beachside and we knew that Tiare would be the perfect choice for our design. She understands Kailua living, the look and feel of what a "Kailua home" should look like. We wanted to keep the vintage feel of the home, but with a modern twist. Tiare's professionalism, attentiveness, creativity and willingness to go the extra mile is all that we could have expected and more. She has a great support team to help solidify the tasks and needs of the design and follow through of completion of said work. Our friends and family ask about our design and we do not hesitate to say that Tiare of Archipelago Home came through for us.

Property Owners, Kailua, 2016

"Wonderful to work with, very professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

Archipelago designed two bathrooms and a craft room in our house. They drafted detailed plans which helped us visualize the materials and colors selected.  Worked within our budget and had wonderful design ideas!  Materials ordered on time and designers regularly checked on the contractor's work progress.  Wonderful to work with; very professional, knowledgeable and friendly.  Would use them again and highly recommend them to friends and family!

"Archipelago’s talent for creating unique design ideas

turned our non-functional kitchen and great room into a Hawaii dream home. Tiare Pinto met with us to develop our thoughts and present ideas to create the perfect kitchen/great room layout, providing functionality and beauty. Each step of the design process went smoothly while incorporating our ideas into the plans as we progressed. It was well worth the cost for a professional design plan considering the vast experience of the design team and their conscientious attention to detail and working within our budget and time frame. The appropriate design layout incorporates the stunning views we have of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai and the magnificent Pacific Ocean. We can watch the whales while dining at our artist-created bar.  We finally have our dream kitchen!

"Spot-on recommendations, contacts and knowledge come from long experience.

We highly recommend Archipelago Home. It has been an indispensable go-to resource for us in space planning our 4,000 sf house, designing fabulous custom furniture and procuring nearly everything else. From window and floor coverings to outdoor furnishings to wall-sized custom entertainment centers, and bedding accessories, Tiare and her team have done it all. They've been in the business a long time and this is clear given the spot-on recommendations, contacts and knowledge that come from long experience."

Kim Aquino, Property Owner, Kailua, 2023

Tiare was the perfect designer for our Kailua refresh! She is easy to work with, resourceful and creative. I appreciated her allowing me to be a partner in the process as I had my own ideas. She was very helpful in finding contractors who got the jobs needed completed timely and professionally. I am very pleased with our refresh and will call Tiare next time I need any interior design work! Mahalo!

Glenn Weinberg, Property Owner, Kailua, 2023

"Archipelago’s talent for creating unique design ideas

The Archipelago team does an amazing job in listening to your vision and incorporating your thoughts into their design concept. They are very open to working with what you have and incorporating your existing pieces into their plan. They were always receptive to our comments and had excellent follow through. We were very happy with their results and would highly recommend their services.
