We all love the relaxing feel that we get during a summer break, and who doesn’t dream of kicking back in a tropical paradise without a care in the world?! We sure do!
The trouble with the tropical paradise dream is that it’s not always possible to get there … and if you do get there It doesn’t come back home with you. That is … until you decorate your home with that relaxing, soothing, refreshing tropical vibe!
We’ve done some online browsing and have made a list of some of our favourite decorator items to make it easy for you to give your home a tropical beach vibe … wherever you live.
Rattan furniture is making a comeback and is gaining in popularity as we speak! Did you know that rattan furniture not only looks GREAT but it is also environmentally friendly too? Rattan grows all year ‘round and the planting and harvesting of the growth assists in restoring the decrease in the population of trees and forests … and it’s a fantastic alternative to logging too.
Melbourne-based The Family Love Tree hand craft beautiful rattan furniture and homewares using traditional methods and supporting small villages and communities along the way. We love the whole range of The Family Love Tree’s rattan pieces, but the Latitude range has really grabbed our fancy! The Latitude range is described as “elegant, understated design meets lush, tropical sensibilities” and we couldn’t agree more! From bedheads, to planter boxes, to bar stools this range screams “TROPICAL” to us, don’t you agree?
Freedom Furniture has a range of tropical inspired homewares too – affordable and look amazing! Our top picks from Freedom Furniture this month are: Monsteria Leaves in two sizes (look real and you don’t have to water them!), the very glam Ritz 3-tier drinks trolley (makes us think of a posh tropical hotel!), and the very stylish and of so practical Araby Basket and the Landoni Basket.
