I have taken to making reference to mine, which is still unconstructed, as the Kapu Luakini Lounge. I like the idea of people coming over to offer themselves. I like the idea of people being unable to walk away. The "Secret" or "Forbidden" aspect is attractive to me as well.

The name of our tiki space is: "The Tihiki Room" adjacent to "Augies Enchanted Chambers"

The Tihiki Room is an outdoor tiki deck in a tropical garden, Augie's (in honor of Augie's Enchanted Mirror- 50's local TV show) is the name of our MiMo styled house.

Tonga Isle and pictures are forthcoming once I figure out how to get the drivers loaded for the new digital camera. (I would make a disparaging remark toward Mr. Gates and Windows but don't know who is monitoring my activity).

My kitchrn is an amalgamation of bright 50's mint dinette,appliances, rocket shaped daisy ice crushers, bauer ware, fiestaware, vintage cocktail stuff from the 20's - 60's and 50's kitsch with tiki mugs, masks and ephemera thrown in for good measure. It's painted in a 50's blue green and has alot of rectanguar shapes and stars painted in patterns atop the green. There is a large white square intersecting a large black square upon which I'd haphazardly centered a large tiki mask and a chrome antenna clock, respectively. One day I noticed the absolute disparate nature of the two and at the same time the strange synergy evoked from this contrast. Then it hit me, this is rocketiki. And so it is The RockeTiki Room. The bedroom is in vintage Deco and 50's mahogany furniture and includes a 60's pink hairdryer-chair-station. It's full of tiki-mugs, plaster exotic statues from the 50's, african and polynesian figures carved of wood, some of them vintage, lava lamps, octopus lamps, Vintage wood vac. tube phonograph console, classic LP's, japanese lanterns, jungle foliage and deco/jungle printed linens interspersed with formica retro end tables, freaky 50's table lamps, boomerang ashtrays(not used)Witco tiki masks, Picasso prints and original paintings an hollow log drums made by myself, girlfriend and artist friends. It looks like a 60's bachelor paradise in here but I've not come up with the perfect name yet. The adjoining bathroom has a tiki mug collection, fishnets, shells, black velvet and 50's ceramic fish wall hangings as well. Will have to work on it's naming too.

I like that ... mess in the dining room. I don't have a tiki bar yet, I have boxes and piles of tiki stuff. My father is the purchasing dir. at our civic center, and my husband works PT security there, anyway, they were throwing out their "South Pacific" sets the other day and the two of them rescued them from the trash and brought them home! SO now that I have a huge pile of bamboo, I have no place to put it all. Every room is taken up by storage or people! lol We are moving in about 6 months though and the place has a breakfast room in addition to the normal dining room so I am thinking of making that area a tiki bar. We will call it The Coconut Monkey Tiki Bar and Retro Retreat. (my friend KT came up with the retro retreat.)

OH! one more thing, I noticed on here one day someone had asian ceiling tiles displayed, they were wood squares with asian themed deco on them... I have about 8 of those, I no longer have the wood backing, but I do have a pile of the decorations that were on them, all you would have to do is cut some wood and stick it on there... anyway if anyone would like them let me know, I need to get rid of them and you can have them if you pay for shipping... I'll send a picture if you want to see what they look like on the wood.
jennifer@blueabyss.net . My husband was driving by a Chinese restraunt they were tearing down to make a Mexican restraunt, he got all that would fit in the car at the time (10) (my dad stole two of them). Anyway, let me know if anyone wants them. They are all silver if I remember right but are easily painted whatever color you want, I have 8 of the center pieces and 4 sets of the outside pieces (corner flowers and border bars)

I call mine "Ta'ero Tiki Hui", it suposed to mean Drunken Tiki Club.

But it probably means "Stupid tourist" or worse.

The name of some of my rooms, all of which are a work in progress:

Living Room = "The Polynes-Den"
A twist on the name Polynesian. Tiki, Las Vegas, '60's, and slightly Hugh Hefner-esque. Also, a tribute to my father's "room" when I was growing up which was called "The Den", and he even had a custom carved sign and a custom made bar.

Dining Room = "The Chow Main Room"
Yes, "Main", not "Mein". An Asian themed room that is our 'primary eating' area, thus the name "Chow Main".

Kitchen = "The Kitsch-in"
Vintage kitchen items and glassware with a touch of stainless modernism.

Daughters Room = "The Princess Room"
Lots of princess related decor. Light pink and purple colors.

Daughters/Guest Bath = "The Mermaid Room"
Mermaids & seashells.

Master Bedroom = "The Hanky Panky Room"
Do I really need to explain?

Master Bath = "The Mingo Room"
Pink with black accents...and yes, Flamingo's too.

Lava Lounge. No pictures yet-we just finished painting the walls and it will be a bit before everything is moved in. It's a 1962 house we are 'restoring' and it will be empty while we slave away for another 6 weeks or so. Then it will be the hottest tiki lounge in the greater Sacramento area (party at the Lava Lounge!)
