If you want to surround yourself with vintage Hawaiian vibes, say aloha to Da Kikokiko in Los Angeles. Awash in friendly shades of blue, green, and white — "a tongue-in-cheek color palette" that principal Jill Stevens of Dust & Co. said was inspired by the ocean — this new eatery pulls its style from the islands to create a calm, welcoming atmosphere. A nostalgic white breeze block separates the main dining area from the entrance, while a puzzle of triangular tiles spreads from the front door through the room and up along the counter. The multi-colored tiles are the small space's defining feature, and yet, their bright appearance is balanced by exposed wood and white beams that solidify the design's embrace of a classic beach property. In fact, Stevens created a "kitchen hut" behind the counter to mimic the lines of "the exterior roof of a mid-century Hawaiian home," and she custom-made cushions as a nod to _Kapa_, a native Hawaiian textile art. While the restaurant's complementary menu of shaved ice and flavorful poke will make you feel like you're on a white sand getaway, it's the look of Da Kikokiko that gives the feeling staying power.
