With Pantone announcing “Greenery” as 2017’s Colour of the Year, we have seen the outside coming in, and this trend is set to continue well into next year. If you’re harking back to your perfect holiday or if you’re looking to make an interior design statement, then embracing all things tropical may be just what you’re looking for.
Tropical style is all about calm and tranquility. The use of warm, soothing colour that reflects the sky, sand, and vegetation transports you to a place of peace and relaxation. Try to incorporate a range of natural textures like bamboo or rattan and lightweight, natural fabrics like linen, silk or cotton and dark wood like mahogany or teak. Don’t be afraid to use patterned fabric, island motifs or leafy and floral prints allow you to express your personality and make the style your own.
While a tropical design is all about calm, your walls will be neutral tones or pastels to add to the fresh, tranquil appeal, the accessories and furnishings are where you can emphasise the tropical style. At Yorkshire Fabric Shop we have a fabulous range of upholstery fabrics just waiting to transform your chairs along with handmade cushions and made-to-measure curtains to draw your eye to a particular area of your room. When it comes to tropical you can be subtle or bold; there are so many ways to show off your style. Visit our warehouse to hunt for your perfect fabric or order free samples online.
