The essence of a well-designed space lies in its ability to transport. I thrive on creating immersive experiences, and I am particularly drawn to the vibrancy and tranquility of tropical design. Here in Bengaluru we’re blessed with a beautiful climate, and bringing the outdoors in allows us to truly connect with that.

So, what exactly defines a tropical interior? It’s about celebrating nature’s bounty. The lush greens, pops of color reminiscent of exotic blooms, and an abundance of natural materials like rattan, cane, and wood. “Light plays a crucial role as well. Tropical spaces are all about embracing natural light and creating a sense of openness.

But achieving a tropical haven in a home in Bengaluru goes beyond mere aesthetics where it is more about functionality. While a statement orchid centerpiece is lovely, ‘tropical design’ should also feel comfortable and inviting. It’s about creating a space where you can unwind and truly relax after a long day. Here, are a few tips that help cultivate a serene tropical oasis.

Embrace Natural Materials
Opt for furniture crafted from rattan, cane, or bamboo. These natural materials not only lend an organic touch but are also inherently lightweight, creating a sense of airiness. Jute rugs and woven wall hangings add to the textural richness.

Let There Be Light
Maximize natural light by opting for sheer curtains or blinds. Consider skylights or light tubes for areas that receive less natural illumination. When it comes to artificial lighting, choose warm white bulbs that mimic natural sunlight.

Welcome the Greenery
Breathe life into your space with abundant indoor plants. A strategically placed Fiddle Leaf Fig or a cascading Money Plant can instantly transform a room. Aashita suggests incorporating plants of varying heights and textures for a layered effect.

A Splash of Colour
Don’t be afraid to inject pops of color! Think turquoise reminiscent of tropical waters, fiery orange-like hibiscus blooms, or calming lavender. Use these accents strategically in throw pillows, artwork, or even a statement armchair.

Nature’s Inspiration
Bring the outdoors in through nature-inspired prints and patterns. Palm leaves, tropical birds, or even textured wallpapers that mimic bamboo can add a touch of whimsy without overwhelming the space.

Accessorise with Intention
Complete the look with handcrafted wooden bowls, seashell accents, or woven baskets. Aashita reminds us that these elements should complement the overall design and not appear cluttered.
