I am in love with anything/everything white and as I am in the process of the renovating my house, I intend to inject as much white as I can. Initial plan is to get everything white but the husband disagrees. I also realized it will looked too bleached and that I have 5 kids can mess that whiteness in an instant. So, instead, I looked for house ideas and home designs ideas with most whites on it and I fell in love with Tropical! Tropical Home Decorating Ideas is now on top of my Pinterest board.
How can you not fell in love with that theme? Whites and plants! Two of my favorite things. And with the heat this summer, oxygen addition is very much welcomed!
So yes, finally, our living room will have a theme and it’s going to be tropical. I will be changing the furnitures soon as well as the curtains and add more plants. More plants!!! Wohoooo. I have been wanting to go to Quezon City Circle to buy plants kase besh, super duper doon!
My OCD in me decided to make a check list of the things I need to make my living room as tropical as it can be. Hence, this Tropical Home Decorating Ideas List.
Tropical Home Decorating Ideas: 5 Things You Need
Palm Tree and lots of plants. Tropical is all about greeneries so as I have mentioned, a trip at one of the biggest plant store in the country is in order. Here’s a list of tropical house plants I am planning to buy:
- Small Chinese evergreen looks good on top of the console or corner table.
- Palm trees such as Bamboo palm and Rhapis Palm
- Bird of Paradise
- Snake Plant
- Rubber Plant
- Peace Lily
Medyo endless ang listahan but I will stop here. I will keep you posted with pictures pag nakabili na ako.
Flamingo. In all my pinterestings, FLAMINGO is a constant image. And honestly, that kind of pink in contrast with lots of green looks really really good. Throw pillow with Flamingo design is a must or a flamingo portrait (that I might paint). I’ll just choose one because too much flamingo is, well, just too much.
Peacock chair or anything wicker. Because wicker is a constant in most tropical homes. You want to know why? Rattan tree, which is one of the materials used for wicker, is abundant in most tropical places. It’s sturdy and a bit cheaper too. Of course nowadays, with high demands of such pieces, the price can be a bit higher. If you are looking for a Peacock Chair maker, check out ADR Furniture and Repair Shop
Sheer Curtains. The aim for a tropical home is natural air and natural light with a touch of nature. So sheer curtains it is, hindi pwede ang mga heavy drapes. Although I have a few curtains here, I am still planning to buy more curtains for this project. Most likely, I will go to Pasig Palengke for curtains. Relatively cheaper and nearer! Or if no choice, look for buy 1 take 1 sheer curtains in SM.
Additional Colors. My Tropical Home Decorating Ideas board in Pinterest is filled with white and greens so I was thinking of adding another color, maybe pink for flamingo and a little yellow for pineapple.
I’ll update you guys! This is truly an exciting project for me. I get to put my favorite color in our living room as well as my favorite theme. Ang saya!
