Tropical Etched-Glass Kitchen Backsplash
This one-of-a-kind backsplash is made from kiln-fired glass that has been carved and etched into a beautiful tropical motif. An aqua-colored wall lit by recessed lighting inside the cabinets creates the backsplash's glowing effect. Dark wood cabinets frame the glass art and draw the eye toward the stunning work of art.
Striped awnings shade this stone tile deck from the Caribbean sun. Potted topiary, potted citrus and a palm tree bring tropical lushness to the space. Striped chairs allow you to sit awhile and enjoy the view.
Don't forget to incorporate plants and greenery in the bathroom. The asymmetrical nature of growing things (in design lingo this is called fractal) will help offset the bathroom's many right angles and straight lines.
Breezy Covered Porch With Tropical Waterfront View
This relaxing covered porch boasts blue and neutral accents throughout nestled under a wood paneled ceiling. A glass coffee table sits at its center, while arched doorways give way to a tropical waterfront view.
Tropical Dressing Room and Bath With Terra Cotta Tile
This master bathroom features a walk-in shower overlooking a pool and deck. The Roman shade in the shower is made from moisture-resistant indoor-outdoor fabric while a bamboo and rattan chest provides storage.
Tropical Backyard Pool With Rope Swing and Waterfall
This tropical backyard features a rope swing from an artificial tree, a large slide that takes you underground before you enter the pool, a large grotto for staying cool, a rope bridge over the pool, a spa and a tanning ledge.
Just off of the grand main staircase sits a luxurious great room, complete with hand-hewn walnut flooring that continues over to the adjacent gourmet kitchen. The large stone fireplace extends from floor to ceiling, while two wicker sofas and matching ottomans boast neutral cushions. Blue throw pillows add a pop of color.
Capiz shell chandeliers, soothing blue walls and bright blue and green accessories lend a beachy feel to this living space. Exposed wood beams and hardwood floors add warmth to the room, while a large white sectional is the perfect spot to cozy up with views of the sea beyond.
