3 Tips for Tropical Decor in a Southern Home
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
