3 tropical-style interiors to welcome summer

There’s no doubt about it, the tropical style has been on trend for several years now, and it’s not about to leave us! This style is still very much in vogue, and is a refreshingly exotic look that is a must-have for the summer season. What if you decided to take the plunge this summer? But between the exuberant “jungle” decoration and the more soothing and nuanced styles, you don’t know where to turn, so take the time to be inspired by our article to be sure you’re aiming right!

It’s impossible to talk about tropical style without talking about natural materials and bright colours! Lush vegetation, rattan or exotic wood furniture, fun accessories… We punctuate everything with touches of green, yellow or blue. This atmosphere can be found in every room of the house and especially in our living rooms. To adopt it, we can choose to put up wallpaper with prints and dress our room with organic furniture. As far as furniture and accessories are concerned, you will have understood that once again it is natural that prevails! Rattan, wicker or sea rush are our best allies. To fully assume this style, we complete with some accessories in the same spirit: palm trees, ethnic rugs, cactus, … Here we can dare colours and show a bit of originality!
