Is your favorite vacation spot on an island surrounded by crystal clear, turquoise water? Do you live for summer each year? Do palm trees and frozen drinks with an umbrella give you a good feeling? Then why not let your outside style reflect it? Here is how to give your backyard oasis a tropical vibe that will have you excited to spend more time outdoors.
Passion for Plants
Of course, the first thing that most of us think of when we hear the word tropical is a palm tree. In addition to these iconic trees, you may want to incorporate showy, bright-hued flowers such as bougainvillea, hibiscus and bromeliads. Any flowering vine that climbs up a trellis is a good addition, as well. Small planters filled with succulents are perfect centerpieces for outdoor dining tables or coffee tables.
Take the hues found in tropical plants and use them as the basis for your outdoor décor color scheme. Passionfruit, lime, coral, turquoise blue, magenta – all of these help to give your backyard oasis a tropical vibe.
Look at this combination of bright blue umbrellas and dining chairs upholstered in an unexpected chartreuse. The cheerful colors exemplify tropical style sure to look right at home in your San Diego area luxury backyard living room.
Here is another juicy dining set. The bright and happy hue of papaya is showcased in this darling pub height table and barstools.
Another way to add tropical touches throughout your backyard oasis is to opt for jungle green accessories and upholstery. This durable Sunbrella fabric choice would be the perfect choice for outdoor chair covering or an umbrella that can take the heat.
If you are not comfortable going with an exotic jungle print, just add pieces in a cool shade of green, such as this table and chairs with matching umbrella from Treasure Garden.
Wicked Wicker Furniture
In areas of the world where the temps are regularly hot and the air is sultry, wicker furniture is the material of choice since it “breathes.” But today’s outdoor wicker pieces go beyond the trusty front porch rocker or settee with overstuffed cushions. This Island Lanai collection from Tommy Bahamas Outdoors shows just how contemporary, stylish and comfortable wicker furniture can be.
To finish, give your backyard oasis a tropic vibe with just right accessories. Wall art of a beach scene is a great piece for an outdoor wall of your home. Gather seashells and display them in mason jars embellished with a length of nautical rope. Lots of fresh tropical fruit in a big bowl on your outdoor dining table is another island-inspired accessory – and one you can eat, too.
