For anyone ready to escape on an island retreat, tropical décor just may be a simple way to embark on a warm getaway without having to pack your suitcase. If you’re stuck within the city limits this season due to a busy work schedule, there’s nothing quite like the warmth of the tropics to help you redecorate your space. With tropical themes currently ruling as a key interior design trend for 2017, draw your inspiration from the heavenly energy of the world’s islands. As the snow continues to fall in the great outdoors, keep these trendy tropical decorating ideas in mind.
Turn to lush greenery and green and white printed pillows: With the tropics being well-regarded for their natural beauty, there’s nothing quite like verdant hues to usher your space into a warmer climate. Use leafy green plants to adorn your living room, and bedeck a simple neutral sofa with pillows in splashy green garden prints. Meanwhile, ivory knit throw blankets, dark hardwood floors and a woven area rug help to set the scene.

Decorate with white wicker chairs and fresh pink blossoms: The look of statement wicker chairs painted white brings a clean, refreshing effect to just about any space. Finish off your décor with framed leaf print wall art, floral accent cushions and tiny pink blossoms placed in a white ceramic vase.

Use white linen bedsheets for a sleek tropical bedroom: When one thinks of resort design, themes such as simplicity and understated elegance immediately spring to mind. Transform your bedroom into a relaxing chamber, with stark white sheets and boho chic printed pillows. Ivory brick walls, gleaming white flooring and oversized potted plants help to capture the beauty of the season.
