Decor Inspo: Tropical

When it comes to summer trends, nothing livens up a home quite like the tropical trend! Tropical inspired decor is massively in-vogue right now: from feature walls to quirky tropical home accessories, tropical is the must have decor of the moment.

If you’re looking to take advantage of this summery, island inspired trend, we’ve put together some top tips on how to decorate your home with tropical accessories, alongside a range of items that you can use available right here at Flamingo Gifts.

Choose tropical inspired colours
Colour obviously plays a huge part in your decor, and different colours can give a room a totally different feel. For a tropical theme, use cheerful pops of colour including greens, yellows, pinks and aqua blue.

Choose tropical patterns
Accessories with tropical patterns are a quick and easy way to create an instant tropical theme in your home. Keep an eye out for leaf or plant patterns such as palm trees, cacti or banana leaves, or opt for big, statement floral patterns that evoke images of desert islands. Animals are also a must; choose parrots, exotic birds and flamingos to get into the tropical spirit. Finally, fruit related accessories or patterns are sure to add a touch of the tropics to your home – from pineapple patterns to fun watermelon designs, you can discover a whole host of fruity options to add some colour and fun to your decor.

Mix up textures
When you think of a tropical island, what do you think of? For us, island or tropical inspired decor makes us think of a variety of wood and wicker surfaces, or bamboo combined with more contemporary materials. Think of the kind of materials you may find washed up on a desert island and you’ve hit the nail on the head!

Bring the outside in
The best way to bring a tropical theme into your home is to quite literally bring it into your home, in the form of lots of sunshine and tropical inspired plants and flowers. Whether real or fake, big green plants will instantly give your home a tropical edge, while flowers will add a bright, summery touch. To make the most of the sunlight, strategically position mirrors in areas they will catch the sun — this will immediately make a room feel much larger and much sunnier.

Choose tropical home accessories
If completely redecorating fills you with a feeling of dread, instead opt for a handful of pretty tropical home accessories to liven up your space. Home accessories are the quickest and easiest way to instantly makeover a room — from wall decor to lights and kitchenware, at Flamingo Gifts we offer a fantastic selection of tropical home accessories from the likes of Woouf and Sass & Belle.

Here’s a handful of our favourites:
