If you just can’t wait for winter to be over, you’re probably always on the lookout for things that could help you get through it. From sun lamps to layers of cozy blankets, people trudging through the long winter months will try anything to feel better. One way you can help lift your spirits during the cold winter months is to spice up your home’s décor. Why not bring some sun and warmth to your space by transforming your home into a tropical paradise? Fortunately, you don’t have to invest in a greenhouse or re-create a sandy beach in your living room.
The right wall art mural can make a huge difference in the overall feel of any space. Here are few wall art ideas that will bring a touch of the tropics to your home.
Palm trees are an iconic symbol of warm climates. Just looking at them will instantly transport you to a warmer place in your mind. A wall art mural featuring palm trees and a bright sky will do wonders to open up the space and focus your eye on a warm, inviting world.
Make sure the mural you choose has bright colors and not too many clouds – sunsets aren’t ideal here. Focus on pictures that feature bright greens and blues, perhaps with some sandy beaches to fill out the scene.
For a more hopeful décor, try a wall art mural depicting a sunrise. There’s nothing worse than getting up in the morning when it’s still dark outside – something that happens all too often during the dark winter months. Get your own sunrise right in your home with a beautiful wall art mural.
When choosing a sunrise mural, first make sure it isn’t actually a sunset mural. Avoid darker colors that are more on the red and orange end of the spectrum and focus on bright yellows and whites. A sunrise through a naturally green setting like a forest would be perfect.
Whether it’s got palm trees in it or not, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful beach setting. Look at a white sandy beach wall art long enough and you’ll swear you can feel the warm sand shifiting through your toes.
A bright blue sky will create space in the room, while crystal clear waters and white sands will instantly remind you of lazy days spent sunning in tropical getaways.
Who doesn’t love pineapples? OK, we’re not talking about putting them on your pizza. A quality hand-drawn pineapple pattern is a great way to add something sweet to your space. You can’t deny that the pineapple is a quintessential symbol of the tropics – and it’s a trendy image to boot.
This type of wall art mural could work for a multi-wall installation, as it won’t overwhelm the space. You can also opt for metal wall art or more subtle or abstract pineapple design depending on your overall décor theme.
