    David Jaime and Michelle Jaime, brother and sister designers, with some tools of the trade, including blueprints and samples of building materials on the glass table in his downtown Honolulu office. The siblings enjoy working together and learning from each other. “When we get together for family time we’ll start to talk about work,” David said.

    The kitchen sink backsplash and adjoining wall in the Kailua home were covered in glass tiles made from old window jalousies. The original cabinets were disassembled, reassembled in a new configuration and capped with a quartzite countertop. Light fixtures were given a custom look by wrapping the cords in twine and tinting their stems with the same dark blue paint used on the kitchen island. This is the before image.

    The Jaimes’ remodel of a Kailua beach house switched locations of the living and dining areas, and reoriented the kitchen workspace to face the living area, now at the front of the house. They reframed the back wall beyond the dining area, adding a 12-foot-wide sliding door and replacing worn-out windows with custom models that let in more light. Ceramic tile floors were covered with pale, wood-look vinyl planks. The bar was covered in poplar wood, and fresh paint was applied throughout. This is the before photo.
