Beach Bum

So it's really hard to do Hawaiian style without being kitschy.  And by kitschy, I mean this:

The way to go to keep it from looking like Hawaii Five-O is to keep it sleek and modern, or ecclectic with some Hawaiian touches.  Now the last post was sleek, and this next one is a mish-mash of styles.  More relaxed surferstyle [taken from]

It's clean, fun and chill.  It's girly, but can easily be made gender neutral with a boxier chair, and darker chest, but I like the femininity and gracefulness of this space.  Plus, that mirror is rad.  Ahh, to be a Hawaiian surfer girl!  I think I need a Mai Tai.  See below for where to buy!
