Tropics Inspired

Tropics Inspired

The lifestyle of the tropics is about relaxed living, comfort and amazing hospitality. Life is care free and stress doesn’t exist. So lets take a trip to a tropical island and get inspired recreating island living in your home.

Tropical interiors involve the use of natural materials, greenery, a bold accent colour and a foliage print. All these elements together are the steps to re-creating your very own tropical destination in your home.

So here are my go to decor and furniture pieces for creating a Tropical Home.

STEP 1 : USE NATURAL MATERIALS
