Like an exotic island retreat, tropical decor fills your home with the lush beauty of a dream vacation. Life envelopes you everywhere, in plants and tropical decor fabrics, in water fountains and wicker woven into patterns of flowing wood. Fans circulate the air to give it freshness, and tropical decor art captivates the eye. Discover how easily you can enrich your home with the lush beauty of tropical decor.
Tropical Decor Furniture
The cheapest way to implement tropical decor furniture into your existing room is to add two wicker arm chairs, with colorful tropical decor cushions for seats. A series of large decorative wicker baskets can be placed upside down in a circle, to create a coffee table. Simply position a large wicker tray on top, to create a level surface for resting drinks.
Tropical Decor Fabrics and Rugs
Let your walls and floor remain as bland as they like, Tropical decor fabrics will breathe life into them. Decide beforehand if you wish your tropical decor to be created by illusion, with tropical decor fabrics and rugs, or through living plants. If your green thumb is far from reliable, choose tropical decor fabrics with patterns of leaves and flowers. Upholster your sofas and chairs in them, or save money by sewing pillow covers and a square sheet of fabric that you can cover the seats with, as though spreading a tropical decor blanket over them. For rugs choose ones in wicker color with tropical decor elements woven in, like palm trees or branches and leaves. And for curtains choose white, gauzy fabrics that will flutter in the wind.
Tropical Decor Houseplants
Even if houseplants tend to fail in your home, try the Braided Ficus Tree. This hardy plant is filled with the exotic beauty tropical decor looks for in plants.
