Paula’s Design Tips
- Keep walls white or neutral for high contrast with dark rich wood furniture
- Play with scale and use oversized potted palms; flanking furniture is a great detail
- Plantation shutters layered with flowing white linen drapery is a beautiful touch with this design style
A tropical designed interior will most always include oversized potted palm trees in a carefree and natural like setting. Wood furniture is dark and rich against contrasting light walls and textured is used in pillows and rugs. Color is drawn in from natural sources; the ocean, sky, sun and greenery all add beautiful shades of blues and greens that we associate with this barefoot but elegant design style.
