The Liljestrand House, Oahu

What first seemed like an annoying excursion to please my architect mother, turned into the jaw dropping, photo taking frenzy of the year! I haven’t been on many house tours but I imagine they aren’t quite like the Liljestrand House. This house is one in a million (but I don’t have to tell you that, I have 127392321 photos to prove it)! 🙌💯

The tour was super informative on both the architect, Vladimir Ossipoff, and family, Betty and Howard Liljestrand who lived there. Walking through each room was like stepping into a moment of their life on Oahu in the 1950’s and 60’s. From sitting in their mid-century modern chairs, to opening their kitchen cabinets and uncovering their daily routine, to gazing upon the collection of books in the library, I was completely entranced by the overly designed and insanely beautiful lifestyle the couple lead. It was truly shocking the things they thought about when creating this dreamland.

I won’t go much more into the life of the Liljestrands or nuances of their home – you can take the tour for that! But what I will say is that I most definitely don’t regret accompanying my mom on this excursion (as badly as I wanted to keep lounging poolside). 🏖😉

At that moment, and still sitting here writing this post, I’ve never wanted anything more (even that insta-famous coveted Gucci belt 🤑) than to live in this house!!! Impossible? OK FINE, I’ll take throwing my wedding here and be done with it. No? Okay fine, maybe just attend a party? Something chic? Ughhhh. Only Wishes. 🙏🙏🙏🏠🤩

Next time you’re on Oahu, you HAVE TO GO HERE (psss it’s only $20 too)!  And if you don’t wanna do it for the Liljestrand family history lesson, do it for the Instagram. 😜📸
