When the theme is island paradise, tiki decor such as the quintessential wooden tiki mask, is a must. Bamboo accents and thatched roofs go a long way in inspiring a tropical feel to any yard, interior room, or business, but tiki items add the finishing touch. Hand carved deity masks are right at home in an island setting and can be used in a variety of creative ways to enhance a tropical feel. For example, you can hang one or two around a room, or hang masks of varying sizes together on one wall in an artistic grouping.
Masks may be the first things to come to mind when you are planning a tropical decorating scheme, but they are just the beginning. Tiki decor goes beyond masks to include oil or solar tiki torches, tiki path lights, tiles embossed with deity faces, and bar stools with carved tiki bases. If it is a tiki bar you are decorating, you can find mugs and bar glasses bearing the images of the traditional masks. Additionally, large ceramic and terra cotta pots made in the likeness of tiki totems look delightful with a shock of palm or fern "hair" sprouting out of the tops.
That is the terrific thing about going tropical. There are a ton of kitschy, creative tiki pieces that can be found in catalogs, online, and even at flea markets if you keep an eye out. From paintings to fountains to dinnerware to furniture and more, just about anything you might want has gone tropical. That's great news because it means that no matter where you live, you can enjoy an island oasis and the only limit is your imagination.
