Colour Inspiration Summer – Totally Tropical
It might not the best of summer weather outside this week but you can but dream or perhaps bring something a little exotic into your home but decorating in a totally tropical way.
Bring a taste of the Caribbean to your home. Set up a deck chair, cocktail in hand, imagine a lovely sandy beach under your toes and think bright, bold and hot, hot, hot for your updated décor.
Bring In the Birds
Gather in some birds from paradise with ever popular pink flamingos or parrots are perfect and colourful too so perfect for the theme. Look for exotic wallpapers with birds, ceramic, ornaments or cushions and add them in colourful bursts or metallic gold for a glamorous look.
Also popular this summer is the pineapple from colourful cushions, plates and tableware to one of our favourites the gold pineapple ice cooler. There is some great pineapple and tropical style lighting in the shops too if you aware loving this theme. Pineapple is big on wallpaper this year – Romo have a lovely one in a range of colours. What about pineapple ends on curtain poles. Try Jones interiors for these.
Armed With Palm
For the obvious tropical choice add palm tree wallpaper, plants, accessories such as cushions with a palm print or pictures. We have completed several schemes recently with palms and we are loving this trend. If you go bold and palm tree on one wall try grey or something more muted on the others. Try a hot splash of colour in your palm-tastic room such as pink or orange.
Try looking out for other tropical leaf prints which are big this year too. Have a search on line for wallpapers, home accessories, fabrics and furnishings. There are some stunning ones about and perfect and just what you require to go totally tropical.
Paint It Hot
To truly indulge in a taste of the tropics get some bright colour painted on walls in blocks. Try orange, green, coral, pink and purple.

When you are done relax, admire the view and make yourself a cocktail to celebrate bringing summer inside.
