Men and women who live in warm sunny climates (yes, I’m one of the lucky ones!) have an abundance of sunshine, greenscapes, flowers and warm, tropical air to get pleasure from each day. We also have several nearby home decor choices when it comes to tropical or Florida style decorating, so if we choose to bring the outdoors into our houses, it is quite basic.
So what do you do if you do not live in my area of the world and want to bring some of that tropical sunshine into your home decor? Or, you may reside in a warm climate, but want to do some thing far more creative than palm tree pictures and place mats. Whatever the situation, you can generate a stunning tropical property decor that uniquely expresses your lifestyle.
Very first, decide what room or region of your property is going to be part of this decorating project, and then decide what your budget is going to be. It is vital that you address these two critical points prior to performing anything else. If you are decorating on a spending budget, which most of us are, that will dictate your approach to this tropical transformation.
Tropical colors can be bold and gorgeous, in shades of blue, green, coral, turquoise, purple and yellow, so if you adore color, this is a wonderful decorating style for you. Conversely, you can create a beautiful tropical decor with soft colors as well, so there is no definite ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ path for you to take when it comes to color alternatives. I’ve had success with the following color palette, and even though it is various than the color schemes mentioned above it worked quite well. The walls of the guest bedroom had been painted a medium shade of bronze-brown, floors had been bamboo wood, window treatment was a simple off-white sheer tied back with a delicate silk leaf greenery, ceiling fan with faux bamboo paddles, basic palm tree sketches with brown frames on the walls, slim silk palm tree in the corner and a taupe iron bed with bedspread in cream, green and brown with a muted palm tree pattern. The understated theme of this room did not shout ‘tropical style’, but the color and accessory combinations worked quite nicely in my Florida style home.
You could choose to bring the tropical atmosphere into the room in a huge way by making use of a bright, bold color on the walls of your room. Or, you could opt for a muted shade on your walls and use the bright colors for accents in the room. Keep in mind that the tropics includes naturals, such as trees, trees and much more trees, so a stunning, realistic seeking silk (or real if your green thumb and location will allow) palm tree or one thing similar will usually look great. Bear in mind that you actually do get what you pay for with silks, so choose the very best that your budget will afford.
Accessorize thoughtfully and creatively, trying to stay away from the sorts of commercial and over-employed pieces that you most likely see elsewhere. Look for a special lamp that has a tropical feel. Remember as you shop to look online, for there are many excellent sources for tropical themed rugs. Choose cautiously since 1 exclusive location or entry rug could potentially become the focal point of your tropical theme. Or, you may uncover artwork with a standard tropical theme, but the framing or artistry makes it stand out as unique and unduplicated.
Window remedies can incorporate plantation shutters, wood blinds, lightweight fabrics and enjoyable print valances, depending upon your style preferences. Prevent heavy, dark draping styles, as they are contrary to a tropical decor.
The exact same thought is applicable to the overall really feel and look of the room. The upholstered furniture does not have to be wicker and white, but it need to have a light overall ‘feel’ and look. For example, if you are striving for a tropical look to your room’s decor, a navy blue and hunter green plaid sofa will almost certainly not generate the feel you are searching for. A sea foam green sofa with a mixture of cream and coral accent pillows will take you in the tropical, or Florida style, direction.
Establish your tropical color scheme and how you will apply it to your room, shop for special and notabl (not necessarily expensive!) pieces, consist of natural textures, refrain from over-accessorizing, and you will be on your way to making a stunning Florida style decor, no matter where you live.
