Seeing your tiki palace makes the mug you gave us that much more special. Wonderful place, Wendy

Thanks for the kind replies. I spend far too much time thinking about this room so it's nice to know some folks appreciate my efforts.

Here are a few more updates:

I was inspired to paint the wooden mouldings around my window and on my floor base-boards after having seen how well it worked for Polynesian Pop (among others). Apologies for the crappy iPhone photos:




Added another shelf for mugs above my Witco Outrigger:




And I'm changing the face of the tiki that sits over my TV set. I hated how boxy it was. I also think the finish was all wrong. This is still in progress:




That's all for now!

Mahalo fer lookin'

Your bar is amazing! I have a question. Where did you run your hanging lamp cords to get power to them and how did you hide the wires?

Outstanding. I have always loved the bar/moon painting/lava rock bar corner too, but this with the "shipwrecked" planks, door frames, lights and tiki realia is awesome. Your home bar/relaxation zone is a home run! I think I would spend quite a bit of time in there!!

Thanks Polynesiac! And right back atcha! Your Inspiration Point tiki room/ workspace is awesomely amazing! I think I could spend a lot of time in there just getting lost in the details. It is worthy of it's moniker!

Thanks for the compliment Masher88. And to answer your question; since I designed the room from scratch, I made sure I had electrical outlets installed high up near the ceiling that I could control with the flick of a switch. You know that triple switch in behind the bar and under the mural? The one I covered with a photo of bamboo? That's the switch that operates the hanging lamps. I've also made many of my lamps to have shorter chains so they aren't super obvious. But "hiding wires" is something that I have thought long about, and still could do a lot better.
