Hawaii Surf Artwork from Heather Brown
Heather Brown may be one of the most recognizable Hawaii artists of today. Known as the “godmother of modern surf art,” Heather’s artwork focuses around Hawaii’s waves and oceans. Instead of taking a realistic approach, Heather uses an almost pop-art-like, color-blocking method to make her pieces stand out from the crowd.
In other words, Heather’s work is the perfect thing to put on your walls if you want your home to have that casual Hawaii surf vibe.
Hawaii Flower and Landscape Artwork from Karen Whitworth
Another artist that manages to capture the beauty of Hawaii is Karen Whitworth. This talented artist uses bright colors and brilliant light to depict the flowers, landscapes, and animals of the islands. Her pieces are sure to bring fun, colorful energy into any homes that they grace.

Spatulas from Workshop 28
The spatulas from Workshop 28 are absolutely adorable! With fun says and a variety of color options, you’ll be sure to find an option that you like. My favorite saying that they have engraved on the spatula’s wooden handle is, “Ohana first. Aloha always.”
Cutting Boards from Workshop 28
One of the cutest Hawaiian home decor items that Workshop 28 has are the cutting boards! But there’s a little bit of a different process to purchase these cutting boards. Unlike the spatulas, which you can just head to the Workshop 28 website and buy, you have to head to the Workshop 28 speed sales Instagram page. There, you can get your hands-on wooden cutting boards adorned with cute pineapples or that say “serve with aloha!”
Coasters from Workshop 28
In addition to spatulates and cutting boards, Workshop 28 also has Hawaii-themed cork coasters. While you can easily buy these coasters from the Workshop 28 website, they’re often offered as part of a set on the Workshop 28 speed sales Instagram page mentioned above.
Island Coasters from Locali Creative
If you’re looking for coasters that’ll last a little longer than the cork ones from Workshop 28, consider the concrete and resin island coasters from Locali Creative. Each of these coasters are decorated with a golden silhouette of the four main Hawaiian Islands: the Big Island, Maui, Oahu, and Kauai. These little pieces of modern Hawaiian home decor will certainly stand out in the best way possible.
Aloha Kitchen by Alana Kysar
Now that your kitchen has been stocked with all of the coolest Hawaiian home decor items, you’re all set to make some great dishes from Hawaii! Aloha Kitchen by Alana Kysar has some of the best recipes for Hawaii’s special fusion dishes, including poke, mochiko chicken, spam musubis, and many other delicious foods from the Hawaii food bucket list.
Hawaiian Home Decor Items for Your Office
Stationery from Bradley & Lily
The touches of Hawaiian home decor don’t have to be limited to the fun parts of your home, like your walls and your kitchen. No, work and play can overlap a little bit. Add little bits of Hawaiian home decor, including some Bradley & Lily stationery, to your office as well!
The notebooks from Bradley & Lily are both eye-catching and effective. If you’re looking to just jot down ideas, consider purchasing one of the mini notebooks. If you’d like to have a notebook for more official notetaking, consider buying a spiral bound notebook instead. All of the Bradley & Lily notebooks come with the option of blank paper, lined paper, or graph paper.
Ocean-Inspired Bookends from Home Depot
Almost every office has at least a few books in it. Sometimes they’re perched on a bookshelf, sometimes on a lone shelf, or sometimes on the edge of a desk. Regardless of where, the books often seem tempted to topple over. To prevent that, why not purchase some bookends? And to keep with the Hawaii theme, get something ocean-inspired.
Surprisingly, Home Depot has a wide array of bookends (and other home decor items — who knew?), including a few beachy ones. My personal favorites are these white coral bookends and these bronze octopi bookends.
Coincidentally, these bookends would also make fantastic gifts for beach lovers.
Koa Wood Pen from Martin & MacArthur
If you’re feeling extra fancy, you could buy a koa wood pen for your office from Martin & MacArthur. Koa wood is a rare wood that can only be found in Hawaii. Its warm, golden color is unlike any other wood out there, which makes it very sought after.
Now, it’s important to note that these koa wood pens don’t come cheap. At $59 to $195 a piece, these fancy pens are quite a bit more expensive than your average writing utensil.
Hawaiian Home Decor Items for Your Bedroom
Pillows from Lauren Roth Art
What is a little bit of home decor without adding a few pillows to the mix? Lauren Roth Art has a few different pillow designs on her site, including bright rainbows, leafy Hawaiian plants, and blue surfboards. Which one of these comfy pillows match the vibe you’re going for?

Throw Blanket from Coco Moon Hawaii
Coco Moon Hawaii is known for its soft blankets and clothing – but it’s usually marketed towards infants. But not too long ago, Coco Moon Hawaii found out that the parents were borrowing their babies’ blankets, because they were just SO soft! So Coco Moon Hawaii decided to add a few, cloud-soft throw blankets for adults to their collection.
Do know that these adult throw blankets from Coco Moon Hawaii run out quickly! So if they’re in stock, be sure to snatch them up before they’re gone again!
Comforter from Walmart and Amazon
One of the largest, most eye-catching pieces of home decor is a comforter. While it can be difficult to find a comforter that you love, once you find one, it’ll put a smile on your face every day. Perhaps this palm tree comforter from Walmart is for you. Or maybe this bold hibiscus comforter from Amazon is more up your alley.
Traditional Hawaiian Quilt from Hawaiian Quilt Collection
The vast majority of the Hawaiian home decor items on this list are modern Hawaiian home decor. True native Hawaiians in the past did not use reusable bees wax food wraps or island-themed book ends. They did, however, use a variation of the traditional Hawaiian quilt.
Back when the islands remained untouched by European travelers, the native Hawaiians made fabric called kapa for their formal clothes and bedding. This fabric was made of pounded tree bark that was then dyed using natural materials.
When the missionaries eventually found their way to Hawaii, they showed the native Hawaiians how to make quilts. However, the process didn’t make much sense to the native Hawaiians, so they combined the traditional kapa-making process with the missionaries’ quilt-making process to create what is now recognized as the traditional Hawaiian quilt.
There are only a handful of places to buy traditional Hawaiian quilts nowadays, and most have to be custom-made. If you would like to purchase a custom traditional Hawaiian quilt, check out the Hawaiian Quilt Collection.
