Fostering an inviting, sultry space in your home is one way to keep the tropics close at hand, regardless of where you live. Choosing the right color scheme, accessories and furniture can spruce up a room while also making it feel like a comfortable beach resort, even when it is cold outside.
Rich, Inviting Color SchemesWhile there are plenty of color schemes that could be classified as exotic, those trying to create a rich, vibrant feel in their bedrooms or bathrooms may want to go with deep greens, bright pinks, purples or some shades of blue. Pairing the bright with the dark often creates an all-encompassing color scheme that truly removes you from your current location.
Bedrooms and Living Room AccessoriesWhile the idea may initially sound silly, choosing themed accessories for your bedroom and living room will make your home exotic all by itself. Depending on the color schemes that you have chosen for your bedroom, tan, beige or brown comforters, sheets and other bedding are likely to fit into the scheme nicely. It is also a good idea to use sheets with high thread counts to convey a feeling of luxury.
Living rooms give homeowners with exotic tastes a great deal of room to get creative. For example, if the room could use a little extra air flow, select tropical ceiling fans rather than their standard counterparts; in fact, models with blades shaped like palm fronds are some of the most unique accents available to those trying to create an exotic feel in their homes.
