If you’re feeling the warmth and passion of the tropics this spring, try incorporating brilliant hues and island inspired detail into your seasonal décor. As we emerge from chilly temperatures and prepare for rays of sunlight, try transforming your humble home into a breathtaking tropical oasis. Whether your focal point is your living room or your bedroom, here are a few easy ways to embrace the tropics without opening your front door.
Revamp your space with shades of green and ivory: Try breathing new life into your living room by infusing the space with lively colours. Contrast a pastel green sofa with beige and white patterned accent pillows, and use off-white paint to refresh your walls. Meanwhile, an area rug in soft green and white shades can complement your décor and help to emphasize the understated tropical theme.

Redecorate your living room with wicker furnishings, lush greenery and patterned floor tiles: For a heavenly island touch, adorn a white, open concept space with cool wicker seating and swaying green plants. Turn to delicately hanging lamps, neutral tile floors and pastel furnishings to create a serene, luxurious space.

Bring a touch of whimsy into your bedroom with flamingo printed pillows: If you’re not ready for a full home makeover but you crave tropical detail, take a first step into the trend with flirty themed prints. Beautify your bedroom with a cool flamingo printed accent pillow, paired with complementary hot pink and white bedding. To truly complete the look, hanging green baubles and a framed pineapple painting will transport you from your home to an exotic luxury hotel.

Try bringing a funky light teal-coloured sofa, styled with accent pillows in vivid primary hues, into your home. Decorate your walls with a splash of sky blue paint, and frame an aquatic themed painting to emphasize the island hues in the air.
