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.

  • Looking through old photos today, how was she ever this little? Just a little mouse! 
So to all the mummies out there... how is the jump from 1 to 2 👶? Not quite ready yet, but pondering!
  • I’m freezing. Should’ve worn my thermal vest like Mum said 👕 
But I do love these jeans!
  • London Fashion Week I’ve missed you! 
Ps. This is my mum’s @marksandspencer coat from the ‘80’s, how cool is that 😎
  • Bill and Ben, the flower pot men 🌾
  • The faux-leather skirt of dreams... Such a perfect piece for giving me a bit of power when I need it. Link in bio for why I love the power of the leather skirt and shop my faves http://liketk.it/2KktR #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Between work trips and house moving, I haven’t had a chance to get to a gym. I really enjoyed my training session with @pvolve the other weekend but the best thing about them is that you can stream the exercises from home, which makes working out in my own time so much easier. Swipe up on my stories for the link and use my code LOUISEROE for 15% off. There’s also free international shipping so you can try their equipment anywhere. #pvolvepartner
  • #ad Getting ready for a biiiig red carpet tonight in London, I’ll be chatting to every star of @skytv’s brand new #SkyUpNext shows... watch my takeover live on @SkyTV’s IG, and plan your sofa entertainment for the rest of 2020! Ps. These shows are epic, I got a sneak peek 📺 🧐
  • Winter ☀️ my fave...
  • No time to take a pic today so i filmed a little unpacking update instead! Are you following @louiseroehome yet? Here’s a peak of my new closet... & excuse the greasy hair, I am gross (but v happy!) 😂 📦 📦 📦
  • I don’t love what the long winter has done to my energy levels & skin! Some of the little changes I made since moving from LA, for winter wellbeing: porridge for brekkie, homemade ginger tea, oversized cosy jumpers and @LumityLife supplements. The morning capsules stop me reaching for a second (or third!) coffee, and the night time vitamins have helped me wind down & sleep better. Swipe up on my stories to shop  #Lumity #LumityLife #YourBestAgeIsNow #ad
  • At this point, am I in the #SATC movie?! A fond farewell to @eliesaabworld from the Dubai Desert #leparfumessentiel #eliesaabparfum #backtoessentials #ad
