A tropical interior design is easier to achieve than you might think. If you wanted to turn your living room into an Amazonian oasis, then these are the design ideas and tips to follow.

Let's start with the walls: a slightly over the top wallpaper, like the Merian Palm by Timorous Beasties, on the main feature wall will instantly give the tropical feeling to the room. It can be paired and balanced by a deep colour paint for the remaining walls and a lighter shade, like the one from Tom Dixon.

A main feature wood coffee table will add the unique touch, together with the stunning Cube Terrarium by West Elm to bring life to the room, literally!

Make yourself a coffee, grab your favourite mug, magazine and blanket and sink in our Helena Scatterback in Wool Linen Mix, Olive. This eccentric, elegant and unique sofa brings a tropical storm to your home thanks to its vibrant green colour. Helena is throne fit for a queen, making it the perfect centrepiece for your tropical inspired room. Pair with accent pieces made from mixed materials and a good healthy living cookbook courtesy of Deliciously Ella to add some quirkiness and interest to the room.
