Plants, Plants and More Plants
If there’s one thing you’re destined to see in an island-inspired home, plants! From oversized banana leaves to full ferns, greenery is a must when embracing modern tropical design. Adding foliage to your beach home doesn’t have to be limited to a pot, either, we’re seeing big, bold leafy patterns on throw pillows, curtains and rugs, too.
Pops of Color
Add instant vibrancy to your new tropically-inspired space with pops of color. From vibrant yellows to lush pinks, you can truly have fun with your color accents. It’s a good idea to keep your walls clean and minimal for this, and then when you bring in the color it will instantly become the focal point.
Add Flare with Flamingos
These lovable birds are quintessential tropics. If you’re looking to add a bit of fun and flare to your modern tropical design, you’ll certainly want to incorporate a flamingo or two. Pretty in pink, elegant and serene, flamingos coordinate with a variety of hues for a beautifully pulled together space.
