The new Modern Tropical look is a soothing, clean, updated version of the more vibrant tropical décor we usually think of. It still uses natural wood and rattan furniture pieces accented with pops of classic island patterns, but this new look can be simplified to a few sleek and special pieces within an airy, white, or sea-toned space.
Use the wood, rattan and jute rugs as your beach-neutral tones (think of driftwood and sand colors, bleached shells and natural stone). Add accents in hues like bold clear orange or yellow or blue (ceramics, textiles, artwork) in a very spare, very curated way. Keep it simple. The look will be fun, but updated.
Of course, you can still opt to turn on the sunshine in the bold Classic Tropical style. Or pull in cool blues and green palm fronds for a South Seas Tropical Escape. Or, do a pink-and-green Tropical Cocktails look. Create your own twist on the Modern Tropical living trend. Your only goal: a relaxing space that makes you feel happy, like you’re on vacation.
