Tropical Style Tips for Homes

With the 2016 Olympics underway, the world’s eyes are firmly fixed on Brazil’s carnival capital Rio de Janeiro.

This vibrant city is currently inspiring a tropical trend in UK homes. Colourful Brazilian style and rainforest motifs are some of the ways you can integrate this look in all rooms – anything from the kitchen to the bedroom.

Here’s our design team’s pick of their favourite Rio-inspired looks that we hope you will love too.

Botanical – prints and plants

Whether on roller blinds, soft furnishings, wallpaper or even a graphic printed feature wall, jungle plant designs will create a tropical paradise in your home. Mixing real tropical plants with botanical themed designs also adds to this look. Accessorise with coloured furnishings in similar hues or mix with dark wood for a natural feel. Get the look with Style Studio’s Tropics Verde window fabric and see more ideas below.

Green and Teal Colourways

Pick two flamboyant hues and carry these colours throughout the room or combine them with paired back neutrals. Teal is a top trend colour and deep luscious green is being talked about in all of the interior magazines and a huge colour for Autumn/Winter 2016.

Colour block with Rio Brights

Rio is the carnival capital of the world bursting with intense and brilliant accent colours. Bright azure blues, fuchsia pinks and vivid yellow are great colours for window blinds that will bring a taste of the tropical to your home. Keep your scheme neutral and introduce ‘pops’ of your chosen colour throughout the room.
