Getting Resort Ready
Color. It’s the life pulse of a tropical rainforest; it engulfs
you literally everywhere you look. There, a pink flamingo, whose feathers are as vibrant as a nightclub’s neon lights. Here, a morpho butterfly’s mystical wings flapping so fast, it’s painting the air with a blue-tinted brushstroke. Everywhere, the green palms and vines and thrush climb and crowd and compete for your field of vision, sparkling in the sun with dewdrops of neighborhood waterfalls. Color is the key motif of tropical heat, so if you want to transform your home into an island paradise, you best get your proverbial easel and palette, and start ‘painting!’
The Icing on the Cape
After you lay down the colorful ‘groundwork’ (i.e., the basics, like rugs, furniture and wallpaper/paints), it’s time for the real
fun to begin. Play around with wall art
, throw pillows and small decorative accents
that remind you of the island landscape you want to emanate (hint: a yellow, orange and blue color scheme = a tropical win)!
