Decorating Guide: Modern Tropical

From jungle fabrics to wanderlusty colours, exotic flora, foliage imagery and bird accessories, interiors have gone totally tropical, but if you find parrots and palms a tad too much, you can create a subtle modern tropical scheme with our tips here ... 

 

1. COLOUR

Embrace the tropical trend at home with subtle touches of colour in exotic but elegant colours. What are the hues most associated with exotic lushness? Gold and green. Put them together to create your own private paradise at home. Here is a moodboard of products from home-lust.com to help you create the atmosphere of an exotic escape without the cost of the tropical trip: 

 

2. PATTERN

Because tropical is a transitional and transient trend, you probably don't want to invest massively in decorating your entire house with expensive palm cushions. Nevertheless, this is the perfect time to be brave with colours and patterns, so look for exciting neon shades, ethnic shapes and foliage patterns prints to really inject a bit of the lemonade lifestyle into your space.

 

3.TEXTURE

If you find that you are way too timid for citrus colours and the psychedelic 70s patterns, infuse interesting textures into your decor. Create a Bali-style atmosphere with rattan and vintage industrial accessories that will help create a fresh, modern look that still packs a punch

 

4. FOLIAGE

The most authentic way to create a tropical paradise in your very own home is, of course, to fill it with natural greenery. Create your indoor oasis with tall plants and botanical prints that will stay fresh from season to season. A removable hammock sure helps with living la vida boho ...
