Tropical travel posters make an instant statement. The roll up shades finish the look although I would have to add a palm or banana tree.

This beautiful entrance is an example of quite tropical elegance. It is traditional in design but the tone on tone palm wallpaper and the simple centerpiece of tropical foliage add an unmistakably island feel.


Whether on the windows or a piece of furniture like this armoire, shutters look fabulous in the tropical  interior.

Wallpaper is gaining in popularity again and is another option for creating beautiful tropical spaces.

Feel like you are living in the tropics with an outdoor motif via tropical foilage wallpaper like the ones seen here and below. 

While some rooms stay tropical all year long, others go tropical for the summer! If you want to dabble in tropical interior design but aren’t looking for a year-round commitment, replace a few pillows with breezy selections, add some lush greenery, and you’re set. When autumn comes, put those tropical accents in the closet and replace them with earth-toned pieces for the new season. For some design enthusiasts, featuring tropical motifs throughout the year is a comforting way to stay warm inside on the coldest of days! Why not make your home feel like a vacation each month of the year?!

Just a touch of the tropics is all you need sometime. Rooms that are saturated with tropical elements can turn sour on you real quick.

Nothing brings nature in like – well, nature itself! Besides purifying the air and bringing a natural sense of well being, indoor tropical plants will help set the mood to your space. Just be mindful that some species (like the monstera deliciosa) can be poisonous so make sure to do your research before you make any purchases (important if you have small children or pets). Some nice options are air plants, yucca plants, raphis palms and philodendrons. Garden and landscape designer, Mary Ann Rounseville, can offer additional botanical design help!

When it comes to living rooms, many tropical features can easily be integrated into the space. Let’s start with the natural elements, such as a sea grass rug and a woven pendant lamp. The room below, designed by Lee Kleinhelter, also includes a tropical leaf centerpiece. [from Lonny] 

Opt also for those shades of yellow and green which come in contrast if you have dark colors of the furniture.

Tropical style is all about comfort, ease and utility and is eclectic by definition.The style is characterized by warm and soothing, colors drawn mostly from natural elements such as the sea, sky, and vegetation.

Hues may be deep and rich or may fall on the lighter, brighter side. The sea and sky provide a range of blue tones, while the sun-drenched sand offers various golden tones. Other colors come from tropical foliage which is lushly green with brilliant flowers in a rainbow of colors.

Other element include natural materials like bamboo, rattan, jute and exotic wood furniture such as teak. Fabrics and accessories are usually printed with island motifs, tropical plants and materials, framed dried plants, natural textures with simple floral prints or various topics in the jungle.


Baskets and metal containers filled with tropical plants will seem hugely appealing in a tropical space.

There are two kinds of tropical interiors……..trendy and timeless. As you know I am not a big fan of trendiness, so it stands to reason this blog will focus on elegant, timeless, tropical interiors.

If done correctly a tropical room can stand the test of time and never be dated or out of style. It doesn’t matter where you live, you can create a tropical getaway in your own home with a few design tips.


Emphasis is commonly placed on hardwood furniture such as teak or mahogany to give weight to a tropical interior. The painted or papered ( it is hard to tell which from the picture) wall treatment sets the stage for the tropical flavor of this room.

This bedroom features a simple and clean approach to the tropical motif.

For an ultra-modern take on a tropical bedroom, try a coastal mural in earth tones. Glass windows and lush foliage both inside and out continue the tropical motif.  [from Houzz via Plushemisphere]

Tall palms, large green fronds, flowers of unusually bold color. It is not surprising that the warming weather conjures up images of the tropics-spaces that evoke relaxation through natural beauty. When infusing a room with tropical interior design, there are a few helpful tips you must keep in mind.

Tropical interior design is all about calculated pops of bright and lively color. Think macaws and rare tree frogs for color inspiration. A small amount of a bright bold hue will go a long way. Choose the hue based on the colors of your existing space and furnishings and don’t be afraid to choose a color you love but not necessarily paint an entire wall in. That’s exactly the point. Like a rare flower in the forest – a moment of intensity – not an entire space. So whether it’s a bright throw, an accent pillow or a picture frame, make it count.

A tropical bedroom with a minimalist style. Just some trunks at the end of the bed and a few other accessories is subtle yet still gets the message across. A mosquito netting canopy would look nice too.

I love the elegance of  this room. The cane backed chairs and the large tropical plants give this room just the right amount of the island atmosphere.

Wicker furnishings are a perennial favorite for those choosing a tropical theme.

In case you like vibrant colorings, then to boost tropical adorning, you should utilize colors such as orange, yellow, violet or purple which can brighten up the tropical interiors.

Or go with a green and white lattice-print wallpaper and frame a large tropical leaf painting as the room’s centerpiece! The Hollywood Regency bedroom below is made all the more elegant by a crisp white poster bed. [from One King’s Lane via Shop Talk]

Kitchens are sometimes difficult to incorporate into a tropical design but this one works wonderfully.

Lattic is another material that can be used to creat a fabulous tropical room. You may not have this grand a space to decorate, but like with many of the images I post, you can take an idea and do something with it on a smaller scale.

The natural elements of stone and bamboo are perfect for a tropical style bathroom. the divider is an excellent choice!

Traditional elegant furnishings infused with modern colors and tropical plants creates a dynamic space

To really bring the tropics home, go with palm leaf wallpaper in the bedroom. A green and white motif is the perfect backdrop for vivid accents in colors like yellow and peacock blue. [from Lamps Plus]

Can you count the tropical motifs in the room below? Tropical leaves in vases, a woven pendant light, palm leaf ceiling fans, painted bamboo dining chairs and a bowl of fruit. Did we miss anything?! [from Allison Elebash]

By using a tropical influence you can create your own oasis at home.

There are many tropical accessories on the market today. Just be selective and choose the items that will last through the “trend”.

The first area seen when you open the door of your home, the entryway is the perfect place to establish a tropical motif. A potted palm and a pair of shell lamps introduce a vacation vibe, as shown in this first image. Crisp blue and white striped walls also contribute to the beachy atmosphere. [from Lamps Plus]

Don’t think that wicker and teak are the only staples of a tropical room! For a touch of palm beach glamour, go with painted bamboo furniture and a lattice-motif mirror. [from Inspire Me]

We end with a bathroom that includes no tropical features of its own. Except an abundance of verdant plants outside, which brings the tropics indoors with the help of floor-to-ceiling glass windows! [from Luxury Idea]

It’s time to visit the tropics! If not by plane, then by a touch of design magic! Tropical interior design can involve the use of natural materials, such as wicker, rattan, bamboo and teak. Then again, many Hollywood Regency-style rooms filled with glossy furnishings go tropical with the help of fabrics featuring palm leaves, lattice prints and cane motifs.

Light and breezy spaces can be achieved with white or sea blue walls and linen curtains, while more ornate rooms may showcase silky drapes, luxurious pillows and potted palms in elegant planters. Is your style minimalist modern? No need to replace your clean-lined furnishings with wicker pieces! Add a bowl of citrus fruit or a large tropical leaf in a cylindrical vase, and you’re set. Tropical interior design can be applied to any style. We think you’ll agree when you see the images below:

Last but not least, bring tropical elements into your home by introducing some organic forms that mimic nature. Maybe it’s the sinuous curves of the mountains that become a chaise or legs of a table that imitate rain drops (like this Chuva dining table from Leo Romano) or winding metallic strips that form the base of a lamp. Add a sculptural conversation piece or two to seal the deal. This will take the tropical concept to a whole other level and make your space feel thought out. The key here is to focus on abstractions of nature so the imitations are not too literal.

The bathroom is a great setting for a bold tropical motif. After all, people are often more willing to take design risks in a smaller space, and many welcome a powder room with a theme! Below, a “tropical meets Art Nouveau” bathroom designed by Celerie Kemble and Anna Burke features leafy wallpaper, a gilded bamboo mirror and a cane tissue box cover. Yellow calla lilies complete the look. [from Lonny]

Another tropical color palette is created by combining lots of neutral colors and soft hues which give the feeling of airy space.

Wonderful wooden ceilings make a big tropical statement. Beds are usually high off the ground to allow fresh air of the island to circulate around the room.

A traditional room can still achieve a tropical look with plants and the right accessories like the parrot figurines and the bird cages.The shades of blue, green, and gold are natural and work well with the tropical elements.

With summer around the corner, it seems beautiful prints of tropical foliage is taking over! Investing in a decorative piece with one of these prints is an easy and quick way to bring a piece of paradise into your home. Depending on how much you want to commit, you can add a pillow, a framed print or even apply wallpaper to a small area. The original “Martinique” wallpaper from the Beverly Hills Hotel is a favorite. To get this look, you can purchase the classic wall paper to accent walls. On a smaller scale, pillows of the same print can adorn furniture and get a similar result.

Speaking of woven decor and tropical leaves, this next space features a pair of round, textured lamps and ceiling-high palm leaves. The safari-themed room is designed by David Flint Wood. [from Lonny]

But don’t think you have to go all out to achieve a bold tropical statement. In this next image, modern furniture reigns, yet a few large leaves in contemporary vases give the space a hint of beach-side living!  [from CB2]

For a modern take on the tropical dining room, go with a bold geometric wallpaper and temper it with a large tropical floral painting. In this space designed by Eileen Kathryn Boyd, a bowl of apples ties the green and white motif together. [from Lonny]

This room has many nice elements associated with an island style from the shutters to the parrot chandelier.

Tropical interior design can be simple to create when keeping in mind the tips shared above. Needing a little more guidance? Decorilla’s interior design service can bring your dreamy home ideas to life.

If you’re starting from scratch or have a bit more room to grow into the tropical motif, layer natural textures with your furniture and accessories. Select natural fabrics like linen and cotton, and raw toned woods in medium warm tones like teak and walnut, wicker, hide and leather, grasscloth and jute (like this Bunny Williams rug). Remember to create some variation in tones so there’s some contrast or else it will become too monotone.
