We’ve already discussed how to work florals into your decor, and this is the same idea, just with more tropical inspired plants.  Hibiscus flowers, palm fronds and pineapples will bring some tropical flair to your space.

Whether large or small, monochrome or multicolored polka dots are a great way to add some pattern to a room.  With a range of different types polka dots can be subtle and sophisticated, loud and colorful or anywhere in between.  Whichever you prefer you’ll be able to find the right spots for your decor.

Crochet

Crochet accents are an ideal way to add color and texture to a space.  A classic crocheted afghan draped over a chair can add a charming retro vibe to a room, but crochet doesn’t have to be your grandma’s doilies.  There are plenty of modern crocheted pieces available, and if you’re crafty you can even make whatever you like.

Ruffles

Ruffles can easily go too girly, but well rendered ruffles will add visual interest to a decor while still being sophisticated.  A few ruffles throughout the room can add a soft, feminine touch to modern spaces, which can easily become too cold and sterile.

Plaid

Confession time – plaid is one of my favorite patterns, so this may be a bit biased, but you can’t go wrong with a good plaid.  While too much plaid can easily become overwhelming a few plaid pillows or a plaid throw on a neutral sofa will add a nice amount of pattern and color.  If you really love plaid one piece of plaid upholstered furniture is a nice touch, just make sure to then keep the accessories more neutral.
