Decorating is all about making spaces cohesive and appealing to the eye. This can be done in many ways and in any space-even the kitchen! Keeping your counters clutter free and clean makes a huge impact and makes the space seem open and fresh. Create interest with your lighting, drapery and other practical pieces. Introduce a warm home feel to your kitchen by adding decor with pops of colour, texture and lots of function. For example,adding baskets in your kitchen is a fun way to keep vegetables and spices that also adds visual interest and serves a purpose. Use fruits to fill bowls and vases; this adds a burst of colour and an organic element, a perfect choice for the kitchen. Another tip: be sure to keep all small electrics in the same finish this really makes any size kitchen cohesive and impressive.

Bring style into your kitchen with simple fixes! Decor in this space should be multi-purpose. That is, stylish but practical. Fill a serving bowl with fruits or use baskets for storage.

Think Tropical Retreat!

Living on an island there will always be that tropical influence in design. Warm woods with detail reminiscent of old plantation homes and pops of bright greens and blues will always be a favorite for island dwellers. This look doesn’t have to be traditional or heavy but rather can be fresh and airy and really give the feel of a vacation retreat in your own home.

Check out some of these great finds at Dwellings that will give your home that island feel!

Shop this tropical look and create a bedroom retreat. Warm toned furniture with shutter detail keeps true to an island feel. Contemporary abstract palm bedding introduces a burst of colour. Add tropical elements through accessories by introducing texture as seen in the rattan trays, shell elements in the capiz lamp and pops of colour through the vases.

Dine in style with these tropical pieces! The counter height table is causal and contemporary but stays true to tropical style with its rattan finish! Punch up the look with fun dinnerware and accessories! Visit http://www.dwellingsbarbados.com to start shopping today!
