We used the Idaho Motel sign to separate the living room from the Tiki room.
After a long hiatus I am back. It is nice to start getting back into the old routine. Our Tiki room has turned out fantastic. It took a long time to refinish all the pieces of rattan but now that they are done they look fantastic. Also, with the help of Bill form “B&T upholstery” and the skillful needle of Debbie from the “The Creative Needle” it looks great! Check it out:
There is a lot going on in here! Just breath slowly and take it all in.
I think the fabric on the cushions and the pillows really make a statement.
Mel and I found these really great curtains on Ebay. They are the rare and sought after birds of paradise barkcloth. The other curtains to the right have a really cool retro style to them.
The colors and imagery on these are fantastic!
Mel and I were able to locate a lot of great artwork to put in this room. As you can see, we found a few more Carlo’s and a really cool airbrush leopard! I still see some wall space… I can squeeze more in.
We went Tiki accessory crazy, ceramic animals, birds, masks and books.
If you LOVE Tiki then make sure you pick up “The Book Of Tiki”. This thing is soo awesome to read through.
I will dive into what items we collected to put in this unit in greater detail later. Mel and I love to chill in here and listen to the Jukebox or watch our retro television.
