The Home Tiki Bars section is one of my favorites on TC so I thought I'd do my part.

"Malahini" means "guest" in Hawaiian and, well, it's our guest bedroom.

Another translation --- and a more common one, it seems --- for "malahini" is "newcomer," which I think also sort of fits because most of our friends don't know much about Tiki so this room is often their introduction to it.

Blank slate after we moved in:





Picking paint was more difficult than I thought it would be. What seemed too light on the swatch looked much darker on the wall. I at first thought the middle one would be the final choice, but ended up going with the first one (the lightest).
