Totally Tropical Home Makeover!

We’ve seen the botanical trend make its appearance in our homes this season and last – and loved it! Now that the sun’s out, things have stepped up a notch and we’re seeing more and more living rooms papered with pineapples, limes or coconut-heavy palm trees. Even if that’s a bit too much of a commitment for you, it’s easy to give your home accessories and look a totally tropical twist right in time for summer!

5. Palm Fronds

You can’t move for palm fronds this season, so try adding a more subtle touch with a small tropical tealight such as this one from Shabby Store.

6. Flamingoes

Very Miami Vice. Flamingoes are another familiar sight in these season’s interior trend books. There’s no way to make this look subtle, so get ready to embrace kitsch!

7. Wood and Bamboo

Nothing says ‘beach lodge’ like light, natural woods. Add bamboo for that holiday feel all year round. This bamboo ladder from Shabby Store is an absolute must have.

10. Tiki Bar

This one’s a bit of good fun – for the summer season, set up a tray of supplies which are ready and waiting to leap into action as a gorgeous tropical cocktail of two. Palm fronts, retro umbrellas and tasteless cocktail shaker an absolute must!
