Singapore is all about the summer lovin’ but very few parts of the island go by the tropical theme – especially residential areas. If you’re as in love with this idea as us, you’ll definitely want to emulate it in your homes. So further, we’ll be sharing 5 trendy ways that you can do exactly that with the utmost flair:
1. Lots of wood
The very first and foremost thing you’ll need to interpret a tropical theme in your homes is lots of wooden accents. They’re a comfortable natural staple and can be affordably brought and installed in a number of composite materials – such as vinyl, plywood, ceiling textures, furniture, etc. – that aren’t expensive hardwood.
2. Vivid colour contrast
Stunning high-contrast colours are an excellent way to capture the beauty of wild tropical flowers in your home interiors. You can articulate this concept in an abstract form by going for vivacious couch cushions, throws, and various other decorative accessories that are spread out evenly all around your tropical themed home interior designs. This image would provide beautiful inspiration.
3. Palm fronds
The ‘tropical’ of the tropical theme is actually inspired by its greenery and lushness. Now, you must be wondering how you can emulate it in your homes. It’s not really that hard actually. All you have to do is decorate with either gorgeous indoor planters or use some other ways to bring in the green. The palm-frond themed wall paper featured in this image is an excellent example.
4. Woodwork bridges
Those light-weight wooden planked bridges with rope-twine rails are a total staple of the tropical theme, so you can’t very well leave them out. For starters, you can emulate this element through the false ceiling design, but if you’ve got cats in your house, it can be used as a literal catwalk – just as the bridge featured in this image.
5. A golden ambiance
The tropical atmosphere wouldn’t be truly tropical if it weren’t for the generous incandescence of the sun glowing on it. The while the colours and leaves are all an essential way to capture the essence of this style, you can’t truly make it holistic without dim, gold lighting in the mix. So, always go for moody warm lighting when you’re articulating this particular theme.
