Aloha! We have a little one on the way and needed a theme for the nursery. What better theme than TIKI!! The wife and I live in a mid century modern home and wanted to create a seamless transition into the nursery from the rest of the home, while still making it playful and fun for our baby boy. After many days of searching on the internet for ideas, we only found a small handful of attempted tiki nurseries. Starting from scratch, we started pulling ideas from TC and incorporated them into our room. A couple of trips to the Tiki International Marketplace and a trip to Disneyland for the 50th Anniversary of the Tiki Room, we set out to put this room together. Most of the items we gathered came from thrift stores, garage sales and curbside finds. I cleaned and refurbished all the items myself. The only box store purchase was the crib. The results are amazing and we couldn't be happier! In another 4 weeks or sooner our little boy, Rex Houston, will be introduced to wonderful world of Tiki and all the magic and wonder it has to hold.































And special thanks to Dawn Frasier for creating this amazing wall paper!

The wallpaper is from Spoonflower.com. Just enter "Wallpaper: Tiki" is the search bar. Dawn and many others have quite a few patterns to choose from and Spoonflower also prints fabric. The wallpaper is really high quality and super easy to apply.

Hey Pele Paul! Thank you for the kind words!! We have an Eichler house with post and beam construction. The entire house has awesome tongue and groove redwood ceilings with an oil based white washed stain. The ceilings are original from 1960 and have never been painted. See the pic below.




Congrats on the new house! I'll be watching for pics of your tiki guest room.

Now that's Tiki!
And that is how to add Tiki decor to a kids room, I like the Mid Century influence too.

Awesome work- I was wondering if that was Dawn's wallpaper from the first photos- great details. Especially love the wallpaper, the TV shelf (epic), the lamps, and the cuddly parrot. Great tiki for kids... it will be a great place to softly introduce your son to the world of tiki!

Look forward to seeing Rex in his new digs.

This is very cool!!! You nailed it on this kids room design of Tiki. The mid-century pieces are great too.
