All that warmth, sunshine & colorful surroundings does something to a body though - suddenly you get urges to wear nothing but tropical prints & redecorate your entire house in bamboo & palm tree prints. The funny part too, is while you're there, in the stores... it all makes perfect sense! Hence why we had to buy an extra suitcase just to get it all back home. Oops! I behaved, most of it was souvenirs, though I am left with all kinds of great ideas of themes I could see incorporating into the house. Now hold on a minute, I don't mean anything over the top like this:
Gotta give 'em credit though, that looks like a ton of work. I mean taking some of the colors, textures and raw materials and bringing them in. Keep in mind I get these feelings after pretty much every vacation, that means it was good, right? What better way to keep it going than to redo a room inspired by some good memories. Paint is a great start, I know some of you hate doing it - but there's no denying the transformation power of paint.

This post would probably be better in the Spring, when we are all coming out of our winterness & want nothing but color. Moving into fall this might seem the opposite of decor themes, what with all the pumpkins that are about to bowl us over, but hey - maybe a redo like this would change things up and make the cold dark months more fun?
I actually like Fall & Winter, but I know most people get a little bummed out when those days get shorter. What do you think, could you bring the tropics into your home or is it more of a cute-but-keep-it-on-the-vacation sort of theme? Have a great one everybody!
