Ritz Carlton Residences in Waikiki partners with Eaton Fine Art to mix fine art with organic inspiration

Inspired by the endemic nature of Honolulu, Ritz Carlton Residences, Waikiki turned to Eaton Fine Art to mix fine art with organic inspiration.

The Austin-based art consultancy firm utilized a mix of international artists to bring a global feel to the residence’s 307 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residential accommodations and penthouses. The neutral palette was complemented by prints that pay homage to the island and its culture—while avoiding overused Hawaiian themes. Housed in custom-created millwork frames, the curated art program also utilizes a variety prints and paintings, embodying a residential collection of artwork.

The spaces’ palette is dominated by greens. The artwork incorporates abstract imagery and subdued colors. This approach is said to maintain the residences’ “vacation vibe” while allowing the views of the landscape and ocean to take center stage.
