Your Ultimate Tropical Style Guide

Tropical Style

Bring the holiday home!

Your tropical style may take influence from your favourite holiday destination. Pick up pieces from your travels and incorporate them into your decor. Think Modern Bali bungalow. Fresh white walls, large lounges with contrasting dark oak details.

Tropical Decor is much more colourful, bold and sunny than Coastal decor.

Tropical Style is Palm trees, Parrots and Pineapples. The colour scheme is vivid and bright, and incorporates natural elements boasting indoor/outdoor living.

Take your tropic look outside- deck out your yard- install low maintenance Kentia palms and breezeblocks to level up. 

Do away with formality and turn up the colour. Select a bold accent colour to carry throughout your home, to add fun and freedom to your space. Immerse yourself in natural palms, decorative tiling and warm oak  floorboards.

Build your Bali Villa from the base up! Try Hybrid/ Rigid Flooring solutions such as Abode Prime Florence or Abode Classic in Queensland Spotted Gum.

Not feeling the summer vibes? Carpets can be tropical too! Create a more elegant look by contrasting carpet in shades of oceanic blues and cool greys with pops of Fuschia, Emerald and Cyan.

If the beach is your go-to place for relaxation and calm why not create a tropical retreat in your own home? Dream about pineapples and piña coladas as you find your own island style with palm prints in bed linen or wallpaper and colour palettes inspired by tropical fruits and flowers. Add coloured glass accessories filled with botanicals from warmer climates and you'll have a bedroom oasis to rival the rainforest.

Style Tip
You can create a more luxurious tropical look by incorporating deeper hues in your palette, pair these with jewel coloured accents.
