Tropical home decor is great for transforming your home into the tropical island getaway you’ve always wanted. Incorporate lush, green plants and natural, earthy tones to create a tropical paradise. Today we have 3 quick decorating tips for tropical design in your home. These tips will help you get started on a tropical home decor journey in the place you call home.
1. Keep It Tonal
Go neutral with the colors and tones in your home. Step away from the typical tropical style that uses bright colors and crazy patterns. Create an environment and space that invokes relaxing island feels. Try decorating with whites and natural colors.
2. Lush Greens
Tropical locales are always rich in greens. Upon seeing bright greens and palm leaves, you’re immediately transported to the tropical state of mind. Pair the vibrant greens with a neutral color palette and really create a lasting impression.
3. Natural Elements
Designing with natural materials not only brings an element of nature, but a look that can withstand the weather. Tropical regions are prone to wet weather and need materials that can look good as well as preform. Turn to designing with light colored woods or even dark, rich woods to create a striking look.
So you like coastal design? Great! Because we do too! The best part about coastal design and decor is that there’s much more to it than pretty shells and cute hues of blue. There are multiple types of coastal decor within the design style. They are beach cottage/rustic, Scandinavian, modern/eclectic, Mediterranean and tropical. Each design style has it’s own unique characteristics that we plan on looking at and breaking down. In the coming Tuesday tips posts we’ll feature one of the design styles and show you guys what they’re all about. To give you all a quick preview of what’s to come we’ve found living rooms from each style to include in this post. Stay tuned and check back in to see each style up close and personal!

We’re loving these Key West homes today! They’re getting us in the mood for sun and summer! We can’t wait! We know we have no right to complain about the weather since we live in California and we only have ‘one season’ year round. But it’s not true! It might not get snowy or poler vortex-like, but it definitely gets cold for us Californians! And just like the rest of you, we long for warm, sunny summer days.
So let these amazingly beautiful Key West homes bring you up and out of the cold slump and into better days. Enjoy all the rich colors and warm tones that the designers use throughout the spaces to really give it a tropical, coastal look and feel.
How nice would it be to spend some time with the family out on patio soaking up the sun and company? In due time my friends! Soon warmer weather will be here.
