My name is Kamaile Puaoi, and I am the owner and designer of Noho Designs. I have emerged as a designer from my Hawaiian healing background as a Lomilomi practitioner and teacher. It was about 2 and a half years ago that I wanted to express my growth artistically as well as spiritually and so I gave myself permission to "be artistic". :) My drive in creating a niche for myself, was to convey the message that "Health and healing starts within our homes". So my mantra I soon adopted is
"Create Visual Peace. Visual Peace=Peaceful Mind. Peaceful Mind=Happy Life."
I believe that if we create visual peace somewhere, or everywhere, within our homes, it changes the Mana (Energy) of our well being. When we change the mana of our beings, we then move into our communities with that positive and peaceful energy changing our "outer" environments. My Kumu always says "it only takes one person to create a positive epidemic"!
I am excited to share my "Hawaiian-Vintage-Chic" Home Decor Services & Products, which are infused with Mana and Aloha and Mana that goes into each locally hand crafted product that we create here on the Windward side of Oahu. :)
I hope you enjoyed my little story, I would love to answer any other questions you may have. If anything, I hope I just brought a smile to your face.
Aloha & Mahalo,
