It may seem trivial to you, but the curtains are one of the most important elements to consider in interior design: the way the light filters through the windows and the curtains is a fundamental element in any environment, and we must choose wisely the material and decoration of these elements. Curtains are usually arranged vertically, and it is impossible not to notice them when they have bright colors and detailed decorations. They are the perfect piece of furniture to gracefully introduce tropical style to your home, with a discrete naturalistic drawing on their fabric.

Maxi tropical print
If you are not a wallpaper lover, you can delimit your tropical house elements to some prints on the wall, instead of decorating all of it with naturalistic patterns. Choose the most monochromatic wall, possibly white or black, and personalize it with a tropical touch. Since it will be placed on a plane and clean surface, you can go for a big size print, or a composition of many small ones, to decorate your tropical houses with some windows onto the jungle.
