3 Tips for Tropical Decor in a Southern Home

  1. Dona��t be afraid to add bold colors: Like the colorful buildings in Havana, your room should reflect both bright and pastel colors that at first glance dona��t complement each other a�� like blush and sky blue a�� but when paired with neutrals like gray walls or tan leather sofa, the colors create a cheerful atmosphere.
  2. Incorporate palm prints and cane: The two unofficial symbols of tropical design, palm prints, and cane naturally signify a lush Caribbean vibe that coincidentally merges well with a Southern-style home. Palm prints in neutral tones make a subtle style statement while adhering to the tropical motif.
  3. Keep themed decorative accessories to a minimum: The last thing you want your Southern home to be is a literal jungle of different tchotchkes. Instead, focus on one or two accessories as the finishing touches to your tropical look. Whether ita��s a singular front branch in a clear vase or a set of gold pineapple canisters, less is more when it comes to delivering a tropical effect.

Love this style and looking to add some pieces to your home? Check out a few of our tropical inspired favorites below!

Caldaza Armoire

Inspired by Cuban window paintings, the Caldaza Armoire evokes Art Deco vibes with a contemporary Floridian edge. Acrylic and brushed brass design elements contrast beautifully against white lacquered doors with caned cutouts resembling the stained mosaic windows from the original inspiration. The piece can multi-task as a bar, cabinet, or writing desk thanks to its mirrored interior, an interior shelf, and two drawers.

Alexandra Bench

Channeling Old Hollywood Glam with a Cuban-inspired architectural silhouette, the Alexandra Bench features clean lines in a coral lacquered finish with cutouts that reveal a caned bodice. A pale blue seat cushion and matching bolster pillows complete the chic and feminine piece.

Paulo Slipper Chair

Influenced by midcentury design with a feminine twist, the Paulo Slipper Chair exudes luxury with its blush velvet upholstery and brushed brass hairpin legs. Art Deco elements integrated throughout the design juxtapose the sleek midcentury undertones.

Habanera Desk

Fusing Old Hollywood glamour with Old Havana spirit, the Habanera Desk boasts a beautiful, curved frame with an Art Deco sensibility. Caned inner panels lend an antique feel that contrast nicely against the coral lacquer. (Stool comes separate)
