Tropical wallpaper dining room

set up a classic space, then bring in tropical plants and rattan furniture for colour and texture.

Summer is coming and with it, tropical styles aplenty. Here we explain 3 easy ways to get this perennially chic look at home, and how to bring the outdoors in for those lazy summer months!

A perfect style for the warmer seasons, the tropical look is enjoying its moment in the sun with lush colours, beautiful greenery, and natural elements.

This breezy, bold approach is built around classic neutrals and airy spaces, punched up with strong prints and the classic tropical texture of rattan. Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture Choice gives 3 tips on how to capture this summery vibe at home.

1. Build a classic space with fresh elements

“For a pared back, minimalist approach, start with white or neutral-toned furniture for a clean slate and to reflect natural light. This gives you a solid foundation to build on, and keeps the look fresh throughout the changing seasons. ” advises Rebecca.

“We went with our very own Aspen table in white - to soften the hard edges, layer with a fluffy throw or a rug, and you’ve got an easy, yet sophisticated look.”

2. Experiment with rattan
Or with any other natural textures - straw, sea grass and bamboo are all other popular materials to get this look, bringing in warm hints of the outdoors and natural tones.

Rebecca says, “Now that you’ve set up a classic space, then bring in tropical plants and rattan furniture for colour and texture. For instance, a set of rattan chairs or light fixture add style and set the mood. ”

3. Play with colour and print
Colour is also a huge part of getting this look just right: embrace bright pops of peach, pink and teal for a space that will have the cheer of summer all year round.

“These are strong colours, but they can be very effective when used well - either in smaller items and decor punctuating the space, or if opting for a feature wall, you can then anchor the room with darker furniture.”

Bold, leafy prints are also a standout of this trend, and art prints and wallpaper are an easy favourite.

“Choose large prints for the most impact here, especially instantly recognisable prints such as banana leaves or palm leaves. Pair a classic oak table or cream sofa with this look for a relaxed and sophisticated air, with natural tones against the bold patterns. You can also get creative with accessories in gold and brass finishes for an additional style boost.”
