We’re packing our swimsuits, putting on the sunblock and saying Aloha to our friends in Hawaii for June’s weekly design challenges! Throughout the entire month, enjoy design themes inspired by the serene surroundings of our design challenge partners, Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. We are beyond excited to announce that with the generous support of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, the grand prize winner of each design challenge throughout June will receive (2) five night stays (one for promotional use and one for vacation) at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort and $1,000 towards your airfare! That’s right: your design challenge entry could lead you to the beautiful white sand beaches of Waikiki, where your only worry will be deciding whether you enjoy your tiki drink with or without a paper umbrella.
Before you start packing, it’s time to start designing! Read on to learn all about our island inspired themes.

Years before the Rainbow Tower was built, tiki culture thrived at the resort. There were plenty of thatched roof guest rooms, pink catamarans, palm trees and Waikiki Beach to set the iconic scene. For this challenge, think Mad Men meets Mai Tai and take a retro approach on traditional Hawaiian symbolism to create a repeating pattern that would fit right in at the neighborhood tiki bar.
