Urban Tropical Inspiration

I think that this decade is most definitely characterized by an embrace for everything green. Lush, green foliage has found its way into our homes again. Yesss! And as the heat begins to kick in, tropical accents could create a resort-like vibe, making our urban living more exotic than ever. As always, fashion has also embraced the tropical theme trend. Cheers to that! I think it’s fun to bring out a little wildness. Don’t you? So here’s to home decor inspiration after the tropical theme trend with some tropical fashion sprinkles for some jungalicious living!!

I don’t know about you, but the summer vibes here are getting more intense. Although most people, tend to believe that going green means a more bohemian style, I assure you that it ain’t so. Fusing tropical theme patterns and accents with bohemian decor is certainly an interesting match that I would like to see more of, but it has to be very well curated or else it may become overwhelmingly busy. (Many plants have a heave visual weight within a space). Therefore, add on when and where needed at a slow pace…

As always, there are so many ways to adopt a trend that I couldn’t possibly show them all, but at least I hope this post sparked your imagination. 😉 How do you like this urban tropical trend? Are you going to go for it? I’d love to know…

Sending you many kisses and exotic vibes,
