Hi All,

Thanks to a much too understanding Mrs-tiki-teo and the inspiration of you fine people, I have been cleared to transform a 10' x 15' den into the Desert Hibiscus Room. This won't compete with some of the palaces on here but it's my bit of tiki in the desert. The pics below represent about 15 months of work - mainly on weekends here and there. Not everything falls into an orthodox view on tiki. For example, there are some Caribbean elements. Although this may be appropriate on some level since it forms the foundation of tiki drinks. So for now, thanks for looking! I will try and post some night pictures and progress on other ideas for the room. Mahalo!

The entrance to the Desert Hibiscus Room:

Glad you asked!


Unfortunately it doesn't fit in the space I've got. Oh, to have a basement...

Nice looking room and that "bar" is VERY impressive. Nice selection you have there.

Love your tiki fountain. Did you do that yourself?

Very well done! It's a shame that you haven't any rum, though.

Need rum?
Let me know and I'll drive up from Casa Grande with a bottle. I'll even stick around and help you drink it.

I'd love to take credit for the tiki fountain but it was purchased at a home & garden show. There are some ideas in the works though to add lighted misters to the bamboo columns that could be triggered on-demand. Special effects ala Trader Sam's.

Great lookin' space. I also love the boomerang coffee table (antique or new one?) and killer looking ceiling! Would love to see some "before" pics, too!

Thanks for posting!
