Trending Now: The Tropical Luxe Homewares Edit

Tropical luxe homewares have been on my radar of late. There’s something about the tropics mixed with a bit of bling that just get’s my heart racing.

Traditionally, a tropical theme was very green and yellow, with textures like wicker and hessian and rattan showcased en masse. It was pretty seaside and beachy; the kinda vibe that’d be right at home on the Gold Coast (more on that classic tropical style here).

But the tropical luxe look I wanna show you today ditches all of those rougher materials and turns up the sense of luxury. It’s sophisticated, chic and even a little flamboyant.

The starting point for this look came from the image above, via West Elm. I saw that tropical luxe dinner setting and thought, Imagine an entire room that looked like that!” And here we are!

Check out the shoppable mood board below and let me know what you think of this scheme in the comments.

Tips for pulling off the Tropical Luxe Look

it’s time to make this look your own at home, so here are some tips from me to you to make it work:

  • The base palette is black, white and charcoal grey. White is the lesser element though
  • On top of that, let green be your accent colour but keep it dark emerald
  • To keep the look high-end, embrace materials like velvet, coloured glass and leather
  • Gold is used a lot here, so don’t be afraid to use it in a larger scale like in a coffee table
  • Tropical patterns are still used, but keep them more black-and-white than bright
  • Indoor plants are essential to give it a classic tropical feel. Try artificial ones like these
