Characteristics of Tropical Design

You don’t need to live near the ocean or in a warm climate to enjoy the Tropical style in your living room. As you browse the Tropical Design Gallery, you might recognize that some of the elements are also a part of other popular living room designs.

Tropical design is often associated with the bold and unique Tiki culture or big Hawaiian prints. While these styles are true to a Tropical design, it might be a little “too much” for some homeowners. Even if you don’t have space for or can’t have an outdoor living room, you can bring to Tropics to your interior living room.

Today’s modern Tropical design incorporates palm fronds, wildlife prints, and furniture made out of tropical wood, but the style is a little more “low key” than previous Tropical designs.

Light and Airy

Living rooms with Tropical designs are often light and airy. Natural light and light-colored walls can make a living room feel sunny, large, and warm even if you live in a cold climate. Much like the Mediterranean style, the Tropical design makes good use of natural light to create an open and welcoming living room area (even when indoors).

Colorful and Eye-Catching Accents

You can make your living room feel like the Tropics without going all out with a Tropical theme. Many homeowners dive right in and make their living room feel and look like it’s straight out of the rainforest. If this feels like too much, colorful and eye-catching accents might be more your style.

Brightly colored pillows on wicker back chair, a collection of palm frond prints, and a variety of potted plants next to a picture window are all small but attractive additions to a living room with a Tropical design.

Mix and Match

Like many design styles, Tropical designs consists of a lot of mixing and matching, and you can add a variety of textures and color to your living room. As long as you balance out your furniture and accessories while keeping “light and airiness” in mind, you can do as much or as little as you want.
