Illuminating Life in Maui: Lighting Design with Patina Interior Design


At Patina Interior Design, our passion for lighting design extends beyond the technicalities; it's an art, a dance of illumination that transforms spaces into vibrant experiences. From the serene shores of Maui to the bustling streets of Wailuku, Wailea's luxury villas, Lahaina's historic charm, Kapalua's opulence, and Kihei's laid-back vibes, we bring light to life.

The Technical Artistry of Lighting Design

Lighting design is a fascinating blend of science and aesthetics. We traverse the spectrum, from traditional switches and dimmers to cutting-edge automated systems that respond to your voice. Our repertoire accommodates various requirements and budgets, from the practical to the extravagant.

Early engagement is our secret to success. Working closely with architects and clients from the project's inception allows us to weave lighting seamlessly into the design. This collaborative approach ensures a comprehensive specification list that covers every aspect of architectural and decorative lighting.

But it's not just about fixtures; it's about understanding our clients' lifestyles. Some are highly light-sensitive, prone to migraines, or specific about LED lighting. Others require well-lit spaces for specialized tasks, like the salon we transformed.

The Art of Problem-Solving

Lighting design is, at its core, creative problem-solving. We don our thinking caps to address unique challenges. Migraine-prone clients need carefully selected lighting. Workspaces require task-oriented brilliance. Creating a comforting ambiance is an art in itself.

Our process begins with in-depth information gathering, understanding your goals and needs. From there, we tackle design problems with solutions tailored to you. The result? Full lighting plans and a detailed specification package that guides the project.

During construction, we remain your guiding light. We work closely with contractors and subcontractors, offering expert advice to ensure that our vision becomes your reality.

Bespoke Lighting: Yacht Lighting Design

Beyond residences, we love the world of yacht lighting design. These floating marvels demand a unique approach, where aesthetics and functionality are paramount. Whether it's a sleek superyacht or a classic sailboat, our lighting designs enhance the onboard experience.

Shining Examples: Four Seasons Maui Salon

Our expertise shines through in projects like the Four Seasons Maui Salon. Here, we redefined luminosity, transforming a once dim and outdated space into a radiant haven. Our lighting concept not only enhanced the visual appeal but also elevated the staff's efficiency and clients' experiences.

Island Inspiration Illuminated

Lighting isn't just about functionality; it's about storytelling. It's the dance of waves, the sun's gentle caress, the spirit of island living. Our lighting pieces, reminiscent of ocean waves and outrigger canoes, embody the creativity and spirit of the islands.

In the world of interior design, light is our brush, and your space is our canvas. At Patina Interior Design, we paint with light, illuminating life in Maui, one project at a time. Whether you're in Maui, Wailuku, Wailea, Lahaina, Kapalua, Kihei, or setting sail on the Pacific, let us light up your world.
