Using Orange in Tropical Decor

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

When people think of tropical decor, the bright blues, greens, teals, and yellows usually come to mind.  For those who think that this might be the only option for tropical decor, there is actually another option.  Orange is being seen more and more in tropical metal wall decor and offers a colorful and more sophisticated alternative to the bright, tropical hues so common in decorating.  The two pieces below are excellent examples of how orange cannot only add color, but truly capture the look and feel of the Caribbean.

The Palm Pleasures Hand-Painted Metal Wall Hanging Set of 4 features a glorious palm tree fanning out over the colors of a tropical sunset.  The orange, green, red, and brown colors combine to provide a distinctive look for any room.  It measures 51-inches wide by 24-inches high and is made up of four separate panels.  Its size makes it ideal for a large wall where a striking focal point is needed.

Unlike the piece above, the Caribbean Foliage Hand-Crafted Metal Wall Art Hanging is ideal for a smaller wall.  It measures 32-inches high by 12-inches wide and features a hodgepodge of tropical leaves.  The orange and silver color scheme captures the Caribbean feel without overpowering the rest of the room’s decor.

Let metal wall art pieces help you provide a more sophisticated tropical decor for your room.  The orange coloring offers an unusual and eye-catching alternative that cannot be seen in all Caribbean-styled pieces.  With the right wall art, your room can be a sophisticated and posh tropical retreat.

Tropical Decor Gone Wild

Tropical decor is typically perceived as being all about palm trees, bright Caribbean colors, and beach scenes.  However, there is another side to tropical metal wall decor that offers a much more natural option.  Using animals in the decor is one way to capture the essence of the tropics without overpowering the room with colors that may be too bold and bright for every room.

Break free of the traditional colors and designs of tropical decor.  Let depictions of tropical wildlife give you the beautiful look and feel that you are after in your tropical room.  The right metal wall art pieces can help you achieve the look you want.
