Wall, Ceiling and Floor Design
Design of room surfaces plays a significant role in tropical styling of the place. It should resemble tropical landscape.
Floor should be made out of light colored laminate or wood, which will remind us about sand at the exotic beach.
Best color choice for the walls would be pastel shades. And the most ideal option would be textured wallpaper. In addition to light beige color, you can always consider tropical shades such as blue, green, terracotta. Smooth walls are not the option in this interior design, the more textures you have got, the better!
Ceiling does not attract a lot of attention, so you can just paint it in warm shades of white, ivory or beige colors.
Furniture plays a very important role in the creation of the tropical atmosphere at your house. You will need all kinds of wicker materials, as well as untreated wood: rattan, wenge, mahogany, and any other type of wood that did not go through rigorous processing. Negligence is welcomed in this interior design. The most suitable pieces of furniture are chairs, sofas, ottomans that are “calling your name” to relax.
In addition to wicker furniture, tropical style allows furniture upholstered with tapestries depicting the tropics and jungle (palms, birds and animals).
In tropical theme interioer bedrooms are usually wicker type.
This aspect of tropical styling is perhaps the most important. Textile is the best representative of tropical attributes. Curtains should be made out of heavy natural materials – cotton, linen, mesh. There is no need to invent sophisticated drape composition, curtains or light tulle will be more than enough. Everything should be simple and natural.
Choose bright prints and colors for bedding, blankets, pillows. There are no restrictions, so all kinds of print with fruits, parrots, palm trees and other tropical goodies will suit the theme perfectly.
You will need bright statues and stuffed birds, creative wicker lamps, all sorts of drums and tambourines, shells, boxes and large chests, tropical ceiling fans. Also in tropical theme interior you should not forget about greens. Nowadays the selection of in-house tropical plants will not leave you disappointed. Last but not least, wall decor can consist of tropical art prints, multi piece canvases or oil paintings in that theme.
