Tropical Lighting and Beach Inspired Decor

Island mania has its roots back in the mid-20th century when a surf-inspired Hawaiian beach craze first swept the nation, yet tropical lighting and decor is still as hot today as when it first hit our shores. The look usually incorporates a color scheme full of rich earth tones combined with splashes of vibrant color. Wood stains range from deep browns to lightly stained teak. Tropic ceiling fans may incorporate rattan blades. Fabrics are often made of natural materials like canvas and burlap and rugs can be woven with jute, sisal or bamboo.

Taking design cues from across Polynesia and the Caribbean, tropical motifs commonly include flowers like the Bird of Paradise, orchids and the beautiful hibiscus. Colorful parrots and other birds, fish, monkeys, and even jungle cats can feature in the look. And of course, the iconic palm tree is often the star of the show.

Put all the pieces together and you've got a distinctive look that's exotic yet casual enough for every day. With lighting and decorating, remember that a little goes a long way. Just one or two beach themed designs on the patio can transport cocktail hour from your backyard to the Bahamas. Add a beach chandelier and a scattering of exotic decor to quickly transform the family room into a Tahitian tiki lounge. So start simple and have fun with this charming, casual style. But beware, once you've brought the enchanting look of the islands home, you may never want to go back.
