The Spirit of the Exotic: Tropical Design in the Interior


People are trying to decorate the space around them. For this reason, the popularity of decorating home furnishings in the style of the tropics is not decreasing. However, some colors, patterns and shapes have been replaced by others. Contrasting prints are not in fashion today. At the peak of the complex combinations of tropical greenery and accessories.

The new tropics

Decorating the interior, designers complement the usual drawings with palm trees and large-leafed plants with images of exotic fruits, flowers, animals and insects. Such additions make the environment layered. New notes of interest in the tropics have resulted in the fashion for large leaves and stems. The emphasis is not on the plants, but on the entourage that they build. Moderation is trending today. Floors with animal skins, walls, hung with stuffed animals – excesses that give the environment comicality. It’s better to decorate the space with bright fabrics, figurines and lamps. Accessories should match the overall mood of the interior. Neutral tones are another distinction of modern tropics. Contrasting colors are better replaced by light brown, milky, peach. Black and white colors are welcome.

Closer to nature Walking into a harmoniously decorated room in the style of “safari”, a person feels cozy, mixed with awe. The atmosphere of the tropical forest is created by the dark walls, and wooden, artificially aged furniture. The floor is covered with “worn” or imitating the nature of exotic countries. The abundance of natural materials: wood, rattan, cotton, linen, concrete plunges into the “wild” interior. Massive accessories, such as a chest, a canopy, a hammock or a pouffe with wicker legs, bring the right tropical notes. It is not necessary to glue wallpaper.

The main role in a tropical interior is given to living plants. It is important not to go overboard with them. It is better to put a couple of “big” representatives of the green world in the corners of the room, and four or five small ones to distribute on shelves, window sills and other surfaces. Large plants that are suitable for decorating the home tropics:

  • alocasia,
  • monster,
  • strelitzia,
  • date palm.

Alocasia or, as it is called popularly, “elephant’s ear” fills the space with huge oblong leaves. There are four to eight offshoots on one stem. Monster is one of the species of lianas that grow in the tropics. The flower has carved glossy leaves. Their images are often found on wallpaper in the “safari” style. Strelitia is called the “bird of paradise.” When it blooms, the buds resemble a bird’s head with an orange comb and a red beak. In the interior, strelitzia flowers are bright spots that dilute the overall color scheme.

The date palm is often found in “wild” interiors because it is unpretentious and reflects the very essence of the idea of home tropics. Cacti, succulents, diffenbahia, bromeliads, anthuriums, ferns are plants that fit the right style. However, the tropics are a flexible direction that allows you to deviate from the canon.
