Our interiors go tropical

While waiting for the summer, let’s get in touch with the Cidade Maravilhosa! Yes, there’s nothing better than embracing the tropical trend!

The jungle, exotic colours and plants are invading our homes and transforming our interiors into a real tropical forest. What’s on the agenda? The classic cacti, palm trees and banana leaves, exotic flowers, a few pineapples, all accompanied by exotic birds such as parrots and flamingos. Of course, everyone will choose the tropical touches they want for their interior. We’ll give you a few pointers!

Let’s start with the colours. If there’s one colour that’s a must to give a room a tropical feel, it’s green, which immediately plunges us into the luxuriant greenery of the jungle. However, flashy colours can also be easily combined with the trend for exoticism. Blue, yellow, red and sandy colours brighten up the furniture and make us smile: we love them… But you can also opt for softer colours and combine pale pink with various plants and foliage: it reminds us of the pink flamingo.

On the walls, very trendy this year, we love wallpapers with tropical prints that dress our walls and energize our decoration.

Rattan is also a must, it is even the best asset of a tropical decoration since it easily invites itself in our interiors and brings the artisanal touch which makes us travel.

Finally, another strong ally of the trend: brass. It goes particularly well with duck green. It is adopted in small touches or in a more exuberant way with chandeliers and floor lamps in the shape of leaves or palm trees. Our favourite piece in brass? A decorative pineapple to put on a sideboard or a shelf.
