Welcome to the Island Resort Decorating Style, where you will discover an exquisite range of quality tables, chairs, furniture and decorating accessories to create a unique Island Resort look.
Transport yourself to a tropical oasis, where salty ocean breezes ad rustling palm trees create a tranquil state of mind. Take inspiration from your images of Island Resort hideaways where comfort and relaxation are found in the "lush minimalism" of a decorating scheme that emphasizes texture and intricate pattern with simple details and a few large accessories. Avoid the excesses of jungle-look decorating, found in children's rooms and focus on a fresh approach that incorporates the colours and features of natural island elements with a tropical chic sophistication.
The colours of sand and timber form the basis of the colour palette that will give you a neutral foundation- ivory, beige, shades of brown and touches of gold. Complement this with colour accents from the rainforest and ocean-shades of green, from light to almost black, muted reds and deep ocean blues.
Furniture should feature long horizontal lines to create a casual feel, and is often large in scale. The emphasis is on comfort and relaxation, without compromising aesthetics. Open-framed seating featuring dark wood makes the perfect foil for soft, durable fabrics, such as cottons and raw silk, that have plain coloured weaves, or motifs of palm trees, tropical plants and exotic fauna. Natural materials such as bamboo provide a "native hut" aesthetic and can be found in a variety of fixtures and accessories. Rattan, has become a very popular material for furniture and baskets and is now available in synthetic all-weather ranges for outdoor applications, both in traditional and ultra-modern styles. Weathered leather, seagrass, driftwood, timber, bamboo and rattan together, are materials that will give your furniture and accessories an authentic Island style, as well as providing a plethora of textures and finishes.
Introduce vertical lines into your Island scheme with potted palms, screens or large pieces of art. Accessorizing inspiration includes staples such as seashells, coral, driftwood, figurines of tropical wildlife and fruit, lamps with palm leaf bases and motifs borrowed from Asian and African styles.
