Hawaiian Punch

At the core of tropical decor is the essential element of vibrant pops of color. From the captivating shades of blue that fade from ocean to sky to the striking pigments of exotic blooms, no tropical landscape could be complete without bold colored accents. On trend this summer, we are seeing lots of rich fuchsia, coral, and pink accents being used. Incorporating exotic colors in your decor will bring excitement to your space and is sure to spice things up.


Coco Nuts For Palm Leaves

No tropical decor could be complete without the classic imagery of the quintessential palm leaf! If you are looking to achieve a true tropical decor, the palm leaf is a necessary staple and can be incorporated in several ways. From palm leaf foliage to big bold prints on pillows, curtains, and statement wallpaper, adding palm leaf visuals to your space will instantly give you that sought after tropical feel.

Lastly, go beachy! With all the loud elements of tropical decor, it can be difficult to achieve a cohesive look. Which is why it is best to start with a simple light canvas. A beachy palette of tans, creams, and grays is perfect to build upon. Use the distressed look for your floor to achieve a driftwood look straight from the beach.
