Light, bright and breezy are hallmarks of Florida and southern-inspired style. Trends come and go – but there’s a few mainstays that will always be in style and won’t “date” your home regardless of it’s age.
Whether bold and bright or soft and subtle, tropic inspired patterns will always scream Florida décor. This pattern can be found on anything from wallpapers to bedding, chairs to wall art. Regardless of how you incorporate it into your personal design and taste it’s sure to brighten any room.
-A Touch of Glam
Who doesn’t love a bit of glitter, glow and shine? Metallic accents are the answer! This style can become too much very easily- so a little goes a long way. One or two statement pieces in a living room or dining room is all you need to elevate your Floridian style.
Neutral colors are always in style one way or another because of their versatility. They add a vibe of cool sophistication whether in the bedroom or living room. You can always add pops of color with accent pillows, throws and area rugs.
-Bringing the Outside In
Nothing says “Tropical Glam” more than incorporating plants into home design to enhance the objects around them. So you’re thinking you don’t have a green thumb…it’s okay…either do I! try adding some “faux” greenery – think palms, ferns, grasses and even a bamboo plant. Add a colorful orchid to your cocktail table or place a succulent on top of a stack of books on a bookshelf. Trees and taller plants can be great solutions if you’re looking to add height to a room or fill in an awkward space.
-Bring the Indoors Out
Now that your inside living space is on trend, let’s not forget the most important “room” to most Floridians…the backyard! Regardless of size and budget, decorate your outdoor space to reflect your indoor design with comfortable seating, coffee tables, a grilling area, lush tropical plants around the pool, a grilling area and even practical storage containers. Enhancing your outdoor space will create a resort feeling without leaving home!
