It’s understandable if you’d like to be somewhere tropical this summer, but if you’re overwhelmed with work and family and don’t have time for a vacation, why not bring the tropics to your bedroom? There are many creative and tropical décor elements that will make you feel like you’re living in the tropics every day. From aquatic fish tanks to tropical colors for walls, creativity in your space is limitless. So instead of being bummed out that you can’t head to the Caribbean or Hawaii, turn an interior into a tropical paradise today!
Tropical Wall Colors
If you’d like to stick with a neutral wall color for your walls that’s understandable, but why not try switching it up and incorporating a bold and bright hue? Turquoise or a teal color on a wall will bring a space alive and if it’s correctly incorporated, it will bring great luminosity to the interior as well. You’ll feel like you’re living in an ocean abyss and your work will feel more productive since the bright color of blue will be soothing and therapeutic.
Furniture with a Tropical Theme
If you’d like your furniture to blend in with your tropical room, search for Asian or French pieces that will fit in with your styling. Or, if you’d like to have a beachy look, opt for a vintage piece of furniture that’s painted with a light blue. The refurbished piece of furniture will look great painted with either a lighter blue or darker blue in a teal shade and will certainly brighten up the room. Rub the wood to give it an aged look and you’ll have a beach bungalow in no time.
Aquatic Fish Tanks
What about bringing the ocean into to your interior as well? Find an aquatic fish thank that’s the perfect size and set it up in your room. Depending on your budget you might also want to look for tropical fish that will also compliment the theme you’re creating. An aquatic fish tank comes in many different sizes so depending on how big you’d like the tank to be, have fun incorporating it into a tropical haven.
There are several more décor pieces and elements that will make your interior come alive, such as tropical themed pillows, calico or canvas wall hangings, and driftwood sculptures. Depending on your taste find sea glass and tropical plants that will add to your tropical retreat. Once you are done decorating you will be able to take an instant vacation in your tropical interior every day. Sit back and relax in your new tropical paradise.
