Tropical decorating is a fun style to have in any home, even if you don’t live on a tropical island! In this style, you want bright, island colors like turquoise, yellow, lime and even purple and orange. Think casual and colorful when trying to implement the tropical style decor in any room of your house.
You can paint the walls any color – bright blue, purple, yellow – even a neutral can work if you have plenty of colorful accents. Then bring in the rest of the colors in your fabrics, pillows, and accessories. Remember to stick to just three primary colors, and your room won’t look too chaotic. It’s usually a good idea to make one color your “main” color and then uses the other two as accent colors just dotting them about the room here and there.
Think about including some palm tree print fabrics, and maybe some tropical houseplants to give your home that lush, green feeling. You can find some great sets of furniture today that are very sturdy but also have a casual island look to them. If you are on a budget, try buying used furniture and painting them in a fun tropical color and accenting them with hardware that has a tropical theme (like starfish, palm trees). You’ll be able to revive some old pieces, get a great custom look in your home and save a ton of money!
Wood or tile flooring goes excellent with a tropical theme and if you want to have rugs, then why not try sisal rugs which have island appeal and also wear very well. Tropical decorating can be a great way to get a fun and relaxing look in your home!
