Sunlit pastel shades, pink flamingos, and kitschy palm prints are popping up all over the place! While this style of décor has its roots in the past, today’s trendy tropicals blend a bit of retro nostalgia with sophisticated modern sensibilities, for a look that is oh so hot and anything but dated! From furniture and fabrics to walls and kitchen cabinets, bring the sunshine indoors and let summer last all year long with these trendy tropical design tips!
Take your inspiration from the Art Deco vibe of Miami in the early 20th century, with chrome, mirrors, rattan, and exotic woods. Sleek lines and statement pieces steal the show, adding a bit of retro flair to your space. You can scour flea markets for that one-of-a-kind vintage find, or shop for reproduction pieces online. With the current popularity of this style of decorating, you should have no trouble finding a funky metal lounge chair, or fun sunburst mirror to fill your space.
A pretty tropical palm print is always in fashion! Add a touch of green foliage to your home with throw pillows, curtains, or bedding in a luxuriously leafy print. In the kitchen, try a pop of vibrant color on table linens, and seat cushions. Don’t be afraid of prints! Tropical floral motifs and geometric shapes in soft colors work equally well in this theme.
Freshen up your space with soft shades of aqua, flamingo pink, coral, cool gray, off-white, and green. If you’re feeling bold, create an accent wall with a boldly botanical wallpaper.
White, gray or khaki kitchen cabinets will create a blank canvas for decorating with tropical prints and colors. Or choose kitchen cabinets in pastel colors like sage green, or tidewater blue for a unique twist! Kitchen island trends lean toward mixing thing up, so have fun by pairing up different finishes!
Flamingos are venturing indoors this year! Once considered the subject matter for backyard ornaments, the flamingo motif is having a big moment in interior decorating. Try a pink flamingo shower curtain in the bathroom, a fun flamingo print on the wall, or a showy beaded flamingo embellishment on a linen throw pillow. Houseplants add a touch of warmth to any living space and are a must for tropical themes. Bromeliads, Anthurium, Bird of Paradise, Philodendron, Peace Lily, Dumb Cane, and Indoor Palms all fit the bill!
Summer doesn’t have to end when your home is a tropical paradise! Now, picture yourself poolside with a mango daiquiri, complete with a paper umbrella, and let’s get decorating!
