Time and again, we find ourselves wondering how we can make more use of a carved tiki head in our interior design. Sometimes, it seems so hard to get the little angry-looking face to work with our neoclassical living room, or even our Louis XVI bedroom. But look no further than Boise's own island-themed bar/restaurant, Reef, for inspiration. It's brought a little Polynesian flare to the high desert, letting diners relax beneath thatched umbrellas on a rooftop patio while they guzzle brightly colored group drinks from straws. Maybe that's the secret to tiki decor: a little alcohol makes all styles work together. Now, if only we could can find the right place for our shrunken head collection.
