How to Turn Your Home Into a Tropical Paradise, Lahaina, Hawaii

When revamping your home, one of the first steps will be selecting a theme. If you’re hoping to create a laid-back atmosphere, tropical home decor is the perfect choice. The following tips will help turn your home into a personal paradise.

5 Tropical Home Decor Ideas

1. Go Floral

Incorporating tropical floral designs into your home gives your space a fun, colorful ambiance. Flowers like orchids, hibiscus, and anthurium can be printed on a variety of furnishings and decor, including upholstery, drapes, wallpaper, lampshades, and decorative pillows.

2. Add Beach Decor

Few experiences are quite so relaxing as a trip to the beach. When you fill your space with beach-themed decor, you can bring that feeling home with you. Place and hang seaside treasures such as starfish, shells, boating knots, oars, sea glass, and vintage lanterns throughout your home.

3. Opt for Wood Furniture

Use wooden furniture with fabric cushions and upholstery rather than metal or leather to complete the casual, breezy aesthetic of a tropical paradise.

4. Stock Up on Plants

Bring life into your home with lush tropical greenery. Tall, feathery palm trees, monstera, birds of paradise, rubber trees, philodendrons, peace lilies, and dumb canes are all excellent options for indoor plants. If you don’t have the best luck with keeping real plants alive, quality artificial versions will have the same effect.

5. Incorporate Color

There are many ways to incorporate color into your home. For a more neutral design, you might choose shades of green, brown, and cream. A beach-angled home is perfectly suited to white and shades of blue, particularly navy. If you prefer to go bold, you might choose bright blues, yellows, pinks, and greens.
