I am crazy about tropical prints. I love all of the hokey design from the 60's, Hawaiian inspired memorabilia and faux bamboo/rattan, bright color, palm leaves, pineapples, you catch my drift? Tropical prints always add a little bit of fun to a space, try adding a palm leaf pattern to your neutral sofa in the living room, or injecting a little flare through a pineapple shaped light fixture. Frame vintage Hawaiian postcards in a grouping for added effect, or a punchy table cloth to a drab dining set- just remember to have fun, and while your at it, sip some yummy tropical punch!! 

How to Incorporate Tropical Design into your Everyday Life:
- Palm Leaf prints. Throw Pillow, Bedroom sheets
- Pineapple Decorative Objects
- Rattan/ Faux Bamboo, left in natural wood hue/ or painted out 
- Shell Motifs, of Anything from the Sea
- Coral
- Banana Leaf Plant
- Lucite
- Car Cart
- Brass
