Tropical Decor - Get the Look!

Design InspirationSarice GutmanComment

I recently returned from a fabulous Hawaiian vacation and I have tropical decor on the brain!  Tropical decor invokes a feeling of tranquility that I love.  Themes of nature help bring the outdoors in, and enables a person to feel like they are on vacation 24/7!  So sit back and grab a cold drink; I'm going to bring a little tropical vacation to your computer screen!

Our trip to the Hawaiian island of Kauai was beautiful.  I couldn't get enough of the lush vegetation, the gorgeous beaches, the vibrant sunsets, and the slow pace of life.  Tropical decor incorporates themes that makes one appreciate the materials, colors, and feelings that are ubiquitous in tropic locals.

For example, this dining room shows off a stunning bamboo dining set, gorgeous natural wood floors, and tropical foliage.  Many tropical interiors incorporate the outdoors as part of the "decor." This open air dining room does it beautifully!

This tropical kitchen stands out with crisp white cabinetry, bold blue-green ocean-colored back splash tile, and large tropical leaf print gallery wall.

A tropical bedroom would guarantee a good night's sleep!  That bamboo canopy bed is amazing and I love the idea of an over sized palm inside! This tropical decor is a nod to British Colonial style (read more about it here).

What a gorgeous living room this is.  The contrast between the natural fiber rug, the neutral upholstery, and the natural wood accent tables is spot on.  I also love the punch of color from the coral lamp shades and the ocean themed gallery wall.  Again, the over sized palms totally complete the room.  Lastly, notice how the mirrored panels reflect even more natural light? Brilliant!
