Tantalus Studio is an interior design studio based out of the forest reserve atop Honolulu that gives it its name.  At Tantalus Studio we believe that interior design should be life-enhancing, inspiring, and artful.  Our goal as a studio is to provide direction, feedback, and expertise to our clients, so that as a team we can create an environment that works seamlessly with their lives.  Hawaii's eclectic mix of cultures and natural landscapes are a key part of inspiration for Tantalus Studio.  We are equally passionate about bringing new life and relevance to a vintage home as we are about creating a curated modern loft space. We are constantly inspired by the past, while always forward thinking and looking at the most current products and innovations.  Warmth, natural materials, and clean lines are underlying patterns in our work.  We strive to make each project we are a part of livable, classic, thought-provoking, and always authentic to its owners. 



This is your home, your personal space, your investment, your sanctuary.  Our goal is to help you develop a design that inspires you, and that is functional for your lifestyle.  We use our experience with proportion, texture, light, and color to craft your unique space.


Good communication is the key to a successful project and one of our strengths. With so many potential team members (architect, contractor, etc), we believe communication must always be clear, positive, and productive.


Organization is also essential to an interiors project where there are so many details to track.  We utilize state of the art accounting and project management software, and pride ourselves on our attention to detail.


Our goal is to develop long lasting relationships with our clients.  We always strive to do everything in our power to make the design process as gratifying and stress-free as possible.
