Hawaiian home décor will make your home feel like a tropical oasis. This style of home décor uses wicker or rattan furniture, lots of greenery and earthy colors to create a laid-back vibe that makes you feel right at home.
If you’re redecorating your space and want that island-feel, here are 15 ideas for inspiration.
15 Hawaiian Home Décor Ideas for a Truly One-of-a-kind Space
1. Morris Chairs and Earthy Tones
Morris chairs are the perfect style for Hawaiian home décor. The earthy tones of this room give it a tropical vibe without being too obvious. You can find restored replicas of the chairs in this photo, but the Hanna chair from Wayfair is a great substitute. The rich wood color matches the Hawaiian style.
Hang a map of Hawaii on the wall, and add other earthy-tone furniture to your space to recreate this look in your home.
2. Rattan Furniture with Bright Upholstery
This Honolulu cottage from the 1930s oozes Hawaiian style and brings the outdoors indoors with its rattan and wicker furniture. The tropical-themed upholstery brightens up the space and complements the earthy tones.
You don’t have to go as dark or bold as this room. If you have a smaller room, light-colored wicker chairs and upholstery will help keep that island feel without making the space feel suffocating.
Adding vases of colorful flowers and seashells really brings the nautical theme home.
Here’s how to recreate this look at home:

- Radiance cordless Roman shades
3. Tropical Bedroom

Rattan furniture will instantly give your bedroom a tropical vibe. Darker earthy colors will provide a nice contrast for brighter-colored bed linens and chair upholstery. We recommend adding lots of greenery to your room, either with real palm plants or high-quality artificial ones.

The grayish-blue colors complement the green artwork and rattan furniture. Wood dominates this room, yet it still feels comfortable and welcoming.
This look is perfect for small spaces, and the clean lines make the room feel more spacious.
The custom built-in sofa is what really makes this space unique, but you can still recreate this look in your home:
5. Teal and Beige Living Room
This Hawaiian-style living room has warming, earthy beige tones with a beautiful teal accent color and natural greenery. The neutral colors will make you feel right at home in this cozy space.
Quirky décor pieces, like the umbrella, give this space charm. If you’re going to add a lot of greenery to your space, keep your décor simple so that the room doesn’t feel too chaotic. Bright, colorful throw pillows and plants can provide plenty of charm and character, allowing you to stick with simple, classic furniture pieces.

7. Hula Lamps
One simple way to add Hawaiian style to your home is to get a Hula lamp. They’re distinctly Hawaiian, and they will instantly add a tropical flair to your space. They look great in living rooms, bedrooms, offices – wherever.
We recommend buying your lamp from a legitimate source in Hawaii. You can find dancing and non-dancing lamps as well as other Hawaiian-style art.
8. The Vintage Traveler
We love this take on Hawaiian home décor, which incorporates colonial style into the mix. The teal and green wallpaper is the star of the show, but the vintage trunk nightstand and eye-catching palm help give this space a tropical flair. Beige, white and green colors tie everything together. And we can’t forget the adorable pineapple wall sconces.
This look is perfect for a guest bedroom, or you can swap out the beds for armchairs to create a tropical-themed office or sitting room. Choose your wallpaper carefully so that the space doesn’t feel overwhelming, and only covers one wall. Use a neutral color for the rest of your wall space. For example, white or light beige would work well to complement the rest of the room’s décor.

It may be tricky to find a large wooden art piece like the one on this wall, but you can find smaller pieces online from artisans. It’s worth the extra cost to buy one-of-a-kind art pieces that your family will treasure for generations.
What’s really great about this room’s design is that the table doesn’t match the chairs perfectly. Instead, it pairs a traditional-style table with these more exotic wicker chairs.
