Helve, I see so much unused space in your pad. Did you ever think of hanging a shelf from the underside of each step? Just make sure no one can kick anything of the shelf while they walk upstairs.

Great vibe going on in that bar... I dig it! Looks like you have a good sense of style. Many times combinations don't work but yours do. I'm talking about the Roth/Tiki/Mexican Wrestler/Beatnik film thing you have going. Very cool and well incorporated.

Aloha Folks..
This is the new HelveTiki Room.
my little Tiki / Sailor / Adventurer Room.

it used to be my grandmother's flower store about 35years ago - and then my grandfather's and fathers tool grinder workshop.
After my father was retired I could rebuild / redecorate the space for me - The house in which it is located belongs already to me and my wife since a few years.

The biggest challenge was the cleaning,
sanding dust is extremely stubborn..!
I've freshly painted the room then.
the reed and the bamboo are from the hardware store.
Most of the Tiki and Ships Stuff in there I've collected over the years,
the carpets I bought in thrift stores.
The room is still not quite like I would like, I still need an old rum barrel and some big tikis
But am already very satisfied with it.

Here some Picture before:
(Unfortunately, there are no old photos from the flower store to compare)








and after:












hope you like it
mahalo and cheers from Switzerland.

Wow! You've really filled out the new space nicely! It looks like it's been a tiki lounge forever--and that's the look to aspire to, right? I have to confess that I have some serious envy for some of the equipment that used to reside in that room. What trouble I could get into with those tools...

yesterday I found this one in a thrift store,
fits perfectly in my room.
Does anyone know where it could originally come from ?
