Going luxe with tropical velvet

/ 01:06 PM September 26, 2021

Transforming our spaces has been one of the ways that helped some of us get through the pandemic. I probably spent more time redesigning and redoing each room of the house for the past year and a half than I ever did prior to the pandemic.

If you’re aiming for that luxurious yet relaxing vibe, go for a tropical velvet theme. Grounded in texture, glamour and nature, it adds a touch of luxury and infuses depth to any space. I particularly love living rooms in tropical velvet design because it feels so chic and posh yet it feels so inviting.


Match furniture with pillows

Every living room needs a comfy yet classy sofa. Pick one in an earth tone with velvety cushions for that sensuously soft, plush feeling. Complement it with throw pillows in eye-catching prints that feature tropical birds and foliage. These home pieces with fun graphic prints will add vibrance to your space and maintain a balance with your neutral living room seater.


Add touches of gold

What says luxurious and glamorous more than gilt on your furniture? You can make a stunning statement with a metallic gold center table, console table and end table. Don’t leave your plant holders behind and choose ones with gold accents as well. Surrounding your room with golden planters can make your space unmistakably tropical in appearance.

Go for more house plants

It’s not a tropical theme unless there are loads of flora involved in the design. You can achieve the best of tropical aesthetics in your home with a variety of beautiful indoor plants. Fill your living spaces with lush greenery and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with how alive it would feel. Of course, pick ones that would thrive indoors. If you’re still unsure of what to get, you can always go for faux foliage.

Hang tropical accent pieces

Finish up your tropical velvet interiors with more tropical elements in various accent pieces. These artistic decorations in dreamy, pretty florals and leafy patterns are attractive additions to your home spaces. Create a gallery of metallic artworks on your walls for a spectacular panoramic view.
