Understanding the Tropical Aesthetic

The tropical style is about relaxing vibes, inspired by nature, to give you the sense of being on holiday, even on a work day. Lush greenery, vibrant colors and a mix of textures that resemble a tropical paradise. What’s great about artificial tropical plants is that you can build on them and incorporate different parts to complement one another. For example large leaves, bright flowers and natural materials, something that would be hard to achieve, not to mention expensive, with real plants can enhance any room in the home.

The tropical aesthetic doesn’t have a predefined color palette, meaning that you can choose whatever colors you like, perhaps some that also go with your decor and wall paint, to beautify your office or home. If you select vibrant hues like green, blue and yellow for your artificial tropical plants, you’ll get the feeling of a lush rainforest or a sunny beach. Then go one step further and find stunning decor items like throw pillows, curtains or wall art to complete your happy place. The result is an incredibly energizing and simultaneously relaxing room.

Choosing the Perfect Silk Plants

There are so many options to choose from when it comes to exotic silk flowers and artificial tropical flowers, an added benefit compared to real plants, as the latter need to be chosen based on the climate and expected sunlight in the room. Real tropical plants, like popular varieties including palms, ferns and orchids, may not be available in the part of the world that you live in and could even die if they are not cared for properly.

Once you’ve decided on the type of plants and color palette you enjoy, start creating your indoor jungle with strategic placement and layering in mind. Begin with larger artificial tropical plants to create focal points in your room, in other words place your favorite and biggest plants first. A good idea is to set them up in corners or next to furniture to anchor and ground the space. 

Next, add medium-sized plants and fill gaps with smaller potted plants or hanging baskets. When you think outside of the box and mix different sizes, textures and species, your indoor jungle gets depth and dimension.

Additional Benefits of Utilizing Silk Plants

One of the biggest advantages of using silk plants is their low maintenance. All you need to do is regularly dust the leaves with a soft cloth or use a gentle spray cleaner designed for artificial foliage that will give it a nice shine. 

Experts will tell you that you shouldn’t be afraid to mix and match different species to create a diverse and interesting landscape, which is one of the main advantages of fake tropical plants – you can decide on exactly which types and textures you like, as well as the amount. Combining various textures, for example the glossy leaves of a monstera with the feathery fronds of a fern, can add depth and dimension to your indoor jungle.

Styling Techniques for a Cohesive Look

If you’re keen to go even further, continue with the tropical vibe by incorporating natural materials like wood, bamboo and rattan into your decor. You can also add accessories such as woven baskets, exotic prints and colorful throw pillows in order to tie everything together. Lighting also plays a crucial role and can make all the difference; use warm-toned lights or fairy lights to create the cozy atmosphere you’re after.
