Our Inspiration: The Tropics

Spring signals regrowth, renewal and rebirth. It's also the ideal time of year to wipe the slate clean and start thinking of new ways to enliven your home. In this special springtime issue, we're taking you on a tour of three unique regions and using the natural surroundings each is most known for as fresh design inspiration. From organic colors, textures, fabrics and wood tones, these decorating ideas are borrowed from Mother Nature who just never seems to get it wrong.
We suspect living in a tropical locale is, more or less, "beachy" keen. But your take on the tropics doesn't need to be quite so literal.

Calm Seas Ahead

Even if you've never had the pleasure of experiencing the sun and sand of the tropics, there is still much design inspiration to soak up from this warm, all-too-relaxing region. The key to re-imagining your home as a tropical oasis is to select elements that are indigenous to the region but not too overt. For instance, our palm-tree-inspired area rug and framed artwork, while relevant, aren't saturated in color.
Similarly, the monstera-leaf-inspired rug sets the let's-keep-things-casual vibe. Consider this our subtle, subdued take on typical tropical living.
