We love a good tropical-leaf print. And anything with wicker. Oh, and we know all the right ways to make our tiny balcony feel like a spacious patio. Yep, some home decor tricks have Miami written all over them. Here, six trends to try in your abode (if you haven’t already).
After all, Miami is a melting pot of cultures. Channel that inside your home by using multiple textures and styles. (Country modern! Sleek fixtures! Light and dark accents!)
You may be thinking, Will this make my room look like one big palm tree? But on the contrary, Miamians know that a green leafy print can go a long way among white and neutral tones.
A Faux-Fur Blanket
Sure, we may not need the warmth. (It’s a million degrees outside, after all.) But faux fur is a cheap (and harmless) way to add a touch of luxury and a whole lot of comfort to your space. Just don’t forget to crank up the AC.
Maximized Patio Space
While some people are lucky enough to have a large outdoor lounge space right in their backyard, many of us find ourselves with a smaller balcony or patio instead. Solution? Maximize your space. Indulge in some large plants, upholstered seating and funky lights.
A Single Wicker Accent
There was a time when floor-to-ceiling rattan was de rigueur in coastal decorating, but thankfully things are much subtler these days. Look to wicker for a honey-hued pop in a neutral bathroom or as a chic way to tone down the formality of a traditional living room. It’s the perfect statement piece that just exudes old-school Miami resort style.
An Eye-Catching Accent Piece
OK, not everyone can afford a $3,000 chandelier, but with a little creativity and elbow grease, you can DIY your own version. Your guests will never know the difference.
