Your home should be a place for you to escape, rest and rejuvenate, and nothing says relaxation and rejuvenation more than a tropical holiday. So to help you create tropics-inspired spaces that you can enjoy this summer, here are a few ways you can bring the style into your home.
A successful, tropics-inspired space brings together natural materials and handmade crafts. Invest in pieces made with natural materials such as cotton, linen and silk. Rattan furniture paired with bamboo furniture and décor items will add to the natural look.
Tropics-inspired décor can easily slip into kitschy if you go too bold, too bright or too warm. Select elements in tones of seafoam, straw and ocean blue mixed with bright greens, warm yellows and lush pink for balance.
Add the element of fun to the space with a few tropics related décor items, consider artwork and fabrics featuring palm tree motifs or functional pieces featuring tropical designs such as a pineapple jug or basket.
Here are six of our favourite picks that are perfect for a sunny tropics-inspired update.
