Let the palms do the talking
Show your plants some love and let them take the focus with a minimalist scheme. Think simple and Scandi or a modern Asian-inspired space and play it up with a mix of lush indoor and outdoor plants, flirting with colour, size and shape when making your selection.
Go sophisticated with leather & lounge furniture
Elevate your décor from holiday fun to exotic and decadent. For inspo think a hotel lounge in Central Mexico or some other tropical location, dripping in sophistication. Tan leather, Prior palms and handmade fabrics will add a luxury touch to your table, which when paired with classic tableware will really make your dining room sing.
Embrace an explosion of colour
Indulge your senses with an explosion of colour and go tropical x 10 with a no holds barred look. The key here is to stick to abstract patterns and prints, avoiding characters or anything too 'pretty' to stop it looking novel; and go a little safari with your fabrics - think bohemian chic meets Tarzan retreat.
Some pops of colour and shameless use of flamingos are allowed with this trend, but you want to take a retro approach for it to maintain its cool factor. Be inspired by the architecture of Hawaii's iconic The Royal Hawaiian Resort and pick a peachy shade of pink to accessorise with rattan and Monstera leaves.
Create your own jungle paradise
There's nothing better than dining under the stars, so take dinner time outside and shroud yourself under a jungle canopy. The table is essential to this look. It requires one that's oversized and shows the real grain of the wood, something that looks like it could have washed up on a tropical beach. If you're not a planter, potted palm trees are just as good for creating your green canopy, just arrange in a row for a leafy screen. Keep accessories minimal for a bare island vibe, editing it down to just one hammock and a fire pit.
