Design 101 - Decorate Your Kid's Room With a Tropical Theme
Nowadays, creating the look of a tropical rainforest is a popular theme for many homes. This theme
typically illustrates warmth, comfort and an exotic feel to a room. This look is often used in living
rooms but this is also a great theme for your children's rooms. It is a style with a fresh appeal but
still with traditional touches. It mixes a lot of texture and complex pattern to it. The common motifs
usually include large leafed bananas, animal prints, grass cloth and palm trees.
In creating a tropical rainforest themed bedroom, there are a lot of considerations you have to make.
It will usually begin from the moment you plan in buying the furniture suited for the room up until
the wall designs you are going to incorporate. Here are a few pointers you should remember to
create a tropical rainforest theme bedroom for your child.
• Upholstered furniture is a definite must for a tropical room. Wood furniture and flooring will
absolutely fit into the whole theme. Light colored wood flooring can be used but you should place
some dark tables and lamps to have an incredible effect on contrast of colors.
• The walls are the biggest part you should focus on. Decide if you want to create a rainforest mural
or just decorate it with pieces of art such as a tropical metal wall art. If you decide on painting a
mural, begin by painting a rainforest landscape in one or two walls. But if you opted for wall
hangings instead then paint the walls with a hue that can harmonize with the rest of the furniture
inside. Then position your wall hangings and mount it securely.
• The foundation of a tropical theme room is usually on the colors you use. These are deep brown,
tan, camel, beige and ivory. The green color is also a vital element in shades ranging from pale
green to avocado greens. Accents in the room should be in darker shades of black and brown. You
can also incorporate these colors into the patterns used for curtains and bed sheets.
