Balhi Ha'i is our home tiki bar, home theater, and guest bedroom. My Instagram page has a bunch more, including a panorama scan of the room, and video of some of the lighting effects:

Mahalo for all the kind words! I put a lot of effort into the lighting; good lighting makes up for a multitude of other sins, but nothing can fix bad lighting. My latest lighting project was hooking up a SimFlame to illuminate the tiki mug shelf -- WOW that's a good product. Huge improvement over the battery-operated fake candles I'd been using as a temporary measure. http://www.simflame.com/
