The tropical style is bursting with pep and perfect if you’re craving some sun! We’re talking light, bright and not a flamingo in sight, here’s how to create an oasis at home.
A bright and vibrant palette
The classic tropical scheme is flooded with colour, and these paints would make a great choice for your walls: Dragon Fruit, Beagle Lizard and Golden Hummingbird. The tropics themselves are also beautifully vibrant, and the perfect example of bliss so don’t be afraid to take your cue from this. In fact, decorating this way is about the wow factor but if colour isn’t for you, it can still work. Tropical prints, patterns, and art will capture a beachy feeling even if you prefer muted tones.
Exotic and leafy prints
Re-create that holiday vibe with tropical prints for walls, coasters, cushions and more. We also love the idea of safari-inspired touches for an ethnic expression like Andrew Martin’s Togo Pink and Stone fabrics. And let’s not forget the sofa and chairs because a colourful print in a soft lemon will add a tropical feel. If you’d like to perk up your home, shop our Cheeky Chairs range or why not enquire about a bespoke piece?
Natural contrasts with tactile weaves
When we look at exotic ideas for interior design, dark wood is a very prominent feature. It’s also exquisitely luxe, especially when paired with a print – think Hawaiin 5-star hotel vibes. Additionally, hand-woven products, bring an authentic vibe as do light woods like natural oak. Team a teak side table with a rustic leaf print, for a look reminiscent of 1960s Palm Springs.
Spiritually uplifting floors
A tropical climate is hot with moist weather, and there’s no way that a carpet would work. Flooring that can be swept, scrubbed or wiped is a more practical choice and is why colourful tiles remind us of getting away. Obviously, the weather’s not the same here, but there’s always underfloor heating to maintain a level of comfort at home. Making for stylish and durable flooring, even in the UK, why not enquire within about the range of Anna Hayman tiles?
Whether it’s the real deal, on your fabric or walls, nothing says club Tropicana like plants. In fact, bringing lush greenery indoors is one of the easiest ways to introduce a chilled out vibe. A typically tropical flower, if you’re looking for colour, birds-of-paradise are stunning and very easy to source. Of course, if natural flora isn’t your thing, there are always faux versions, the perfect alternative to needy houseplants.
