The Tropical Room

With Summer approaching I thought it would be a good time to write a post that celebrates that time of year! This week it's all about tropical home decor!!

Tropical Bathing

One of my favourite accessories when it comes to tropical decorating is plants! Adding greenery or fresh flowers to a room can really bring a sense of outdoor living inside! If you're not the green fingered type try incorporating plants into your bathroom another way; maybe with a great painting or shower curtain.

Tropical Sleeping

I absolutely LOVE this bedroom! The wall covering and the painting give this room a really cool retro vibe while the mixed prints on the bed keep it modern. If you're planning on putting lots of prints together make sure you establish a colour scheme. Adding a highlight colour like the blue in this bedroom keeps things interesting.

Tropical Dining

Colour is essential when creating a tropical room. The exposed wood looks great here set off against the bright furniture! If you're not a fan of painted furniture there are plenty of other ways to inject colour into your room. A great table setting might be all you need! How about adding a tropical print table cloth or some chair covers? Maybe a piece of artwork? Colourful tableware can go a long way to creating a tropical vibe. You could even create a simple centre piece by adding a nice vase or plant. Whatever you use, remember to look for colours that highlight others in the room.

Tropical Living

Creating a gallery wall is a great way to add interest to any room. The important thing is to stick to a theme whether it be colour or subject. Look for pieces that relate to each other in some way and continue the theme with other accessories. This will keep your room looking cohesive.
