Luau Party Favor

I came across a cute idea for a luau party favoricon. This Hawaiian shirt bag made from a colorful cellophane bag contains approximately 12 jelly beans. They would look festive decorating your luau party table. $6.99 for 24 favors.

Top 5 Posts on Modern Residential Design

And here's the traffic / commented / linked list of what you guys thought was coolist!

Arthur Casas - House in Iporanga

A true Tropical Jungle residential retreat. Minimalist, contrasting, yet befitting it's location.

Marcio Kogan - Laranjeiras House

My ideal beachside mansion, open plan, indoors and outdoors blurred, simple palette and spashes of colour.

Marcio Kogan - Mirindiba House

Amazing spans that defy gravity, cavity hidden doors, texture, colour and ahhh.

Melling:Morse Architects Ltd - Split Box

Hometown favourites from my university days, Melling:Morse are the masters of timber in New Zealand.

Arkhefield - Balaam House

Flow, privacy, segmentation of rest and action areas, scaled to fit with its neighbours and what links to exterior spaces.

Jonathan Segal - The Prospect

From the Paladin of affordable Modern Residential Design, I love seeing Jonathan mentoring others to create stylish buildings you can actually live in.

Handmade Hawaiian Flip Flops

Original Hawaiian Thong Sandal (Women)
Handmade by one of Hawaii's only remaining original sandal making companies, these women's Hawaiian flip flops are so comfortable, breathable, and lightweight, youll forget you're wearing them at all. They offer outstanding comfort whether you're walking on a tropical beach or working in your yard, yet their durable sole and long-lasting footbed ensure the bottoms of your feet are protected from rocks, hot poolside decks, and other discomforts. Uppers and insoles are full-grain cowhide; soles are non-skid rubber. A comfort-contoured footbed has built-in arch and heel support, and the cushioned mid-section provides shock resistance and flexibility. Womens full sizes 5-11 $69.95

Nine Light Tropical Chandelier

I can not believe the deal I just found on this tropical chandelier only $44.99 was $373. I'm wondering if it is a price mistake. This nine light two tier chandelier is made with recycled banana leaves and is 25.5" high. This beautiful tropical light fixture will look great in any room. Hurry and get it while you can.

Girl's Surfer Comforter

The Roxy North Shore Comforter and Sham Set is the perfect bed ensemble for that surfer girl. The tropical prints and lively patterns are in a color palette of shades of soft pink and orange. Great for those who love the beach lifestyle. By just adding a few beach signs or posters you can create the perfect girl's surfer bedroom. This comforter is available in size twin or full/queen for only $79-$89.
For similar surfer comforters visit The Hawaiian Home.

Really cool patterns in the new Pottery Barn's Fall Collection.
