7. Tropical Design Style
The tropical design style is a style that emphasizes the exotic, breezy, majestic feel of a tropical location. The idea of a tropical exotic image is mostly one of the seaside. Therefore, this style relies on the use of natural textures and elements to make a room relaxed and warm.
If you want your kitchen to have that tropical or exotic feel, use warm colours, such as cinnamon or nutmeg hues, citrus or jewel tones., and textures that reflect a tropical interior. Use materials of wood,teak,or bamboo. Woven furniture (such as rattan and wicker furniture) are well suited for the tropical look; as well as natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk and gauze for the windows treatment and pillows or cushions.
Bamboo blinds add a natural feel to windows, and accessories that reflect the tropics (such as coral and shells) can add great accents. Wooden beams and wooden or tiled floor is best for this style. For accessories, use a ceiling fan and lamps that are inspired from elements of the tropic.
