JUST A TOUCH OF THE TROPICS IS ALL YOU NEED SOMETIMES.”
Tropical style is all about comfort, ease, and utility. It features the use of natural materials, like jute, rattan, bamboo, and teak. However, you can still embrace that style when having glossy furnishings with the help of fabrics featuring palm leaves, lattice prints, and cane motifs. Tropical interior design can be applied to any style.
keeping in mind the view & use of the space we decided to make this space a tropical getaway. So we used materials like teak wood & cane for our bedroom furniture however we used other materials too for furniture to get a modern contemporary look.
We achieved Light and breezy spaces with a hint of teal color with tones of blush nudes and a pop of orange, A color palette used is terracotta. Warm colors palette & white ceilings also contribute to the cozy tropical atmosphere.
The living room is the perfect place to establish a tropical motif since it is the main area in our home, muted side walls with one highlighted one, potted plants paired with a sitting setup,& abstract painting introduce a warm vibe. What makes this style so special is our beautiful seating setup with rope swing & the ability to set a sitting area whenever and however you want & have a wonderful time with your family over a weekend. while our master bedroom showcases a canned bed, wooden hanging light, silky drapes, luxurious pillows, and potted plants in elegant planters to keep the space fresh and breezy.
More sitting space less furniture is the key to designing the space. We kept the kitchen very simple with a breakfast table which continues as t.v.unit at the other side.
Children room is designed with minimal furniture as we want kids to enjoy more in the space, we provided a small sofa/bed, vertical climbers, rope climbing, printed curtains, cute frames, small plants, a unit to keep their toys, and lots of pillow for the bed. featuring a half-circular colored wall at one side & the rest is done in blush nudes again.
