A wide variety of Hawaiian decor can be found for any room of the house, and some of these home furnishings may be designed for men, women, or children. Some home decor items are accessories such as lamps, rugs or curtains depicting coconuts, palm trees, or pineapples. Other home decorations could contain bright colored flowers, leis, or grass skirts. Wall decor could range from simple signs to large murals and might depict ocean and mountain scenery underneath a deep blue sky.

In many cases, Hawaiian decor can be used in any room of the house and is not gender or age specific. This is often the case with accessories such as lamps, candles, rugs, or pillows. Many interior decorations might be in a pineapple, coconut, or palm tree theme. This could include a serving bowl shaped like a coconut, a pineapple-shaped lamp, or rugs and pillows with palm trees on them.

Hawaii is also known for bright native flowers, which are often used to make leis. As a result, leis and grass skirts are sometimes used as decorations in themselves. These could be placed on the wall in order to create a focal point, or used to create functional decor. One way of doing this might be to use a grass skirt as a curtain or lei to hold back shower curtain panels in a bathroom.

Wall decor featuring some of Hawaii’s natural wonder is popular both indoors and out. When used indoors, Hawaiian decor such as this might include paintings, murals, or wall hangings that have ocean scenes, volcanoes, or mountains along the shore. Some might be pictures of the sunset with dark orange skies, while other scenes have dark blue skies and brilliant sunlight. Outdoor signs might point to the beach or welcome guests to a beach cottage. This functional decor might be in the shape of a surfboard, sailboat, or life raft, and are often bright colors such as red, yellow, or orange.
