tropical punch


I love adding these two elements to a space. Woven materials.. in baskets or blinds and leafy palms. For me, they complete my space. What do you have to have in your space?

I love both! We just have some branches in a corner, but I want a large potted palm plant one day when we get a bigger space!

i always like to add a little something unexpected-whether it's color/pattern or a texture.
those leaves are a must in that space though!

I love tropical leaves too! At this moment, I have mini plants in Chinese bowls, dotted around the house (leftover from a guest blog stint), but I think I need to add a touch of the tropics today!

Woven materials add such great character to a space - Thanks for sharing!

lately, even though it is hot as a monkey's unmentionables here, I need a lit candle to make me feel complete in a room, a first for me, (and a quirky pillow, not "designy" buy "indie." Oh, boy I am a dork. Plus, I can't spell.

I agree!!! Woven, soft, shiny....these are usually the materials I mix and layer in a space. I think this way there is more interest. Oh, and plants (something green) are a must!

ahhh you are always one step ahead of me, I love your blog.
I just got back from puerto rico, and I'm thinking the same thing, my house needs green (air plants, giant palms, ferns and moss) tropical green!!!

I love woven textures too, whether baskets or knubbly fabrics - they really warm up a cool, white space and make it feel like home. : )

Those big palm leaves look really cool. They remind me of the elephant plant my parents used to have (which is, I recently found out, what taro is made from - interesting!).

At the moment, my space has ... mess, and lots of it! I'm in the middle of doing my tax :/

Love the crispness of these images.
