Tropical Inspiration

Today I am dreaming off far away tropical beaches and the fantastic interiors that go along with them...the dark woods, white walls, textural fabrics and lush greenery add up to some pretty amazing spaces.

Would you like to come along with me to decorate a beautiful home in paradise?  If so, get your daquiri with the little umbrella ready!


I adore this room with its hints of Spanish, African,
Asian and - of course- tropical elements. 
It's a little bit of a lot of great things!!

All-American with tropical.

I am definitely ready to move. It's the last day of August and I can feel autumn in the air. I am not ready for that. I love this white/brown/green combo.

Great post, Barbara!

This is a good tropical inspiration! Remember those "tropical disaster rooms"? Filled with crazy florals and fake plants? Gee... :-)

Love the kitchen. It feels so airy and so easygoing.

Gorgeous post!!!

I hope you're doing great!

Yes, yes, and yes! This sophisticated tropical look is right up my alley. Now I just need a home in the tropics :)

I will be ready to move to the tropics when they can do something about the humidity - my hair doesn't like it!! Love the decor pics - especially the kitchen in the last picture. Have a lovely day. x Sharon
