Hot Tropics – Bring The Sun Into Your Interior!

May 29th, 2024

After a long and miserable winter, the tropical trend is going to be big this summer for interiors! Here is some colour and wallpaper inspiration to help you get started.

Tropical paint colours:

Bold and bright colours are a great way to create a tropical scheme. When thinking about a tropical landscape, visualise the colours you can find in clear blue skies and oceans as well as vibrant plant life and delectable fruits! 

Putting together a concept board of the kind of feeling or vibe you want to create in your space will help you choose the right colours and patterns to build your scheme. 

Remember to always buy a sample of your chosen paint colour first and order wallpaper samples so you can see how the colour and pattern looks in your space - colours can look completely different depending on the light available.
