Tropical British Colonial Style

Tropical British Colonial Style

A beautiful mix between island life and English sophistication.  

An exotic classic style with a light and fresh design.  A created space that makes you feel like you are permanently on vacation.

I fell in love with this tropical style because of the layers, textures and the adventurous objects from their origin.  The addition of a white backdrop, greenery of palms and ferns as well as dark timbers transports you to a distination of pure luxury and tranquil living.

There is absolutely nothing more amazing than creating a home that represents British Colonial. So lets incorporate this beautiful style into your home.

ARCHITECTURE

The style has typically high ceilings with oversized fans to cool the room. Windows are added to let in light and seabreeze. Walls are a solid white colour.
