Wow, the folks over at Lotta Living and you guys would have a mean rock throwing fight over this thing with the white ceilings.

I say, if you're doing FULL on TIKI like Bill's room...of course the bamboo and woven mats...if you're doing Mid Century Modern with Tiki as part of it...ultra white is just fine.

Myself, I'm a Mid Century Modern geek, but also a Tiki Geek too...It's hard to decide sometimes which one to do. So I just mix it up. I love rooms like Bill's, where there's so much to look at, and you really get that old school tiki restaurant feel, but then, I'm too lazy to keep all that stuff organized, so I try to go minimalist modern to keep the room looking clean (like a SHAG painting) , this way, when it gets messy, there's not as much stuff to clean around, and the room doesn't look THAT sloopy.



I wish I were more organized and neat.

Hey, Bamboo Ben started it.......... And it only looks that good when we know people are coming over. Remember I have a two boys, 3 and 6. They can trash the place in about 10 seconds!

LOL....

Well...judging by your pics of your studio, you run a tight ship.

So, how hard is it to do the woven mat and split bamboo thing. I did part of a wall in my old house, but you did such a nice job.

I'm leaving next week to paint, furnish and decorate my new Hawaii condo, and would like to do some woven mat and bamboo. I'm limited on time...3 weeks.

How long does it take ?

Believe it or not, I did that celing in about 6 hours. I got the matting from http://www.tikibosko.com and the bamboo from a place called Bamboo supply co. They have a Florida and Cali outlet. They even sell the poles already split.

Hope this helps,
Tiki Bill.

Been looking for a shadow box like that for ages.

Nice all the way around!

TikiBill....I do love your ceiling. I have a large 16-foot high ceiling (not white...but rather an off-white) that I think would look good like that. I won't post pictures as I am sure Ben will have a full out seizure if he sees it...the "off-white" walls are bad enough. But I figure I should start at the top and work my way down the walls.

Did you glue the matting on your ceiling prior to placing the split bamboo over the seams? What kind of glue did you use....any staple-gunning?

I glued the matting up with 3M high strength #90 spray glue, then put the split bamboo over the seams. The small pieces are just nailed in, but for the big poles I used drywall anchors. Wouldn't want a 6 inch bamboo pole landing on my head! For a finishing touch I added pieces of natural fibre rope around the joints of the large poles for a faux "lashing". I would have used full poles, but the celing is only 8'. I've been adding to the bar and will have some updated pics to share soon. You can relax now Ben, I'm helping the "great white curse" one celing at a time.
Hope this helps Vampiress,

Tiki Bill.
