A Quick Lesson

The tropical style began between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, where sea explorers’ and settlers’ cultures meshed. This aesthetic is all about comfort and tranquility, while mixing in the exotic. Tropical chic is achievable by mixing textures, intricate patterns, vivid pops of color and large-sized accessories with simple details.

Popular colors seen throughout this style are blues inspired by oceans and skies, as well as yellows and greens. Incorporating these bold hues into your home can seem daunting at first, but their vivid shades will enhance any room with a fun splash of color. Don’t shy away from some neutrals though! Pay homage to classic tropical textures, like wicker and bamboo, by incorporating hues of beige, wheat and even light brown. From rich blues to greens inspired by the rain forest and bright citrus hues, these pops of color embody the tropics without overpowering your overall interior look.

Incorporating wicker furnishings, wood framing or bamboo is an easy way to achieve a tropical chic look. These natural materials provide a laid-back energy and are typically favored in long furniture pieces to emphasize a restful environment. Floral patterns are also a tropical aesthetic staple and can be used from upholstery to even curtains!

Incorporating greenery is an easy way to embody the nature side of the tropical aesthetic. Most commonly seen are banana leaves and palm fronds. These decorative plants are perfect alongside desks, on top of kitchen cabinets or even on the floor of bedrooms. If you don’t have an experienced green thumb, you’re in luck as there are a ton of small items that also have botanical patterns such as curtains, pillows, and throws.I

Adding wall decor that has a textured feel or look is essential in fully encompassing the tropical style. Macrame is one of the most popular materials featured tropical homes. Incorporate it through wall hangings complete with fringe, beads, and even a dyed design!
