Summer Home Decor: Tropicana Touches

If you’ve been following along my interior design journey, then you may have seen my appreciation for tropical touches. Palm, coral, pineapples…i love it all. And I absolutely love coming home to a warm and welcoming ambiance after a long trip: a bit of tropicana flavor in the home is the ultimate escape from reality. The key here is to find a balance – you don’t want your home to remind you of a kitschy Caribbean resort! Tropical details juxtaposed against rich fabrics like leather, rattan and wood, in a well lit space, can instantly elevate your home style. Choose a single room, or even a common area and revamp them with these three tips for bringing the beach into your home:


1. Textures You Can Feel: Etched art is a huge trend in the home decor world and I absolutely love the sophisticated feel it brings to any room. From frames to mounted artwork, etched wood is an unexpected detail your guests are sure to appreciate (and want to recreate!). Look for these at flea markets or online: the two in my photos were actually from Target. Super cheap, they weren’t a pair, but I bought two as I like the idea of duplicating them side by side.

2. Hidden Treasures:I must have mentioned them about a million times since I revamped my study, but pineapple decor has been a huge catalyst in my home redecoration – not only are Pineapples a symbol of hospitality and warm welcome, but they’re also absolutely adorable. Scattering small copper trinkets and treasures throughout your home adds an instant boost and is just as much fun to find as it is to decorate with. Stick to pineapple motifs in neutral or metallic colors, too literal and they could look like a holiday souvenir.

3. Live Foliage: Live foliage can be tricky, (especially if you travel a lot like me) but it is doable. A palm frond or a monstera leaf can live in a vase of water for weeks with little to no maintenance. It’s a great alternative to a full grown house plant and adds an instant dose of tropicana color that’ll send you right back into beachside bliss.
