Upon request from a couple of corners of our lovely blog world, I have created a buffet of tropical snacks for you my dears. Enjoy, and let yourselves be swept away with these delicious images of paradise..
I love the colours of the tropics. They remind me of either the ocean or a bowl of tropical fruits - aqua, tangerine, white, sea-green, soft golds, fuschia, lime, yellow and coral reds.
Is there anything better than the look of the transparent waters of a tropical ocean!? That amazing colour aqua drives me wild!
If there is something you learn to appreciate living in a climate like ours, it is the shade and staying cool. Open windows at night call for sheer drapes of mosquito nets, and soft candles in order not to draw the abundant creepy crawlies inside.
I love how the colour yellow has such an important place in a warm climate. Not that I negate the beauty of the yellow in my native flag of Sweden, but there is something so fresh and crisp about yellow when mixed in with neutrals in a tropical setting.
I can't remember when I last walked around with 'nude toe nails'. Seriously, I think my toes have sported coloured varnish since I was in my mid-teens.. I bet that isn't healthy, but I really can't stand bland toes. Keeping your feet pretty at all times is key here.
I am not an huge fan of too much green in an interior setting, but splashes of what I call 'Havana green' used to brighten up an outdoor space like in the middle picture is just divine. I also adore the soothing feel of the hall on the far right, and the soft green of the chest of drawers just above. I think it works best when teamed with neutrals & black.
What is your idea of tropical bliss?
