This Coral chair is certainly a show stopper with it’s bright orange colour and unusual design. Feel like King Trident on this chair in your house every time you take a seat, add a tropical drink like above, if you wish. Due to the bright colour of this chair, teaming this in a simple room, adding a few cushions, is all you need to give it that Tropical theme without going overboard.

This mug is brilliant for an all year rounder, not just the Summer. If you are feeling like you only want a very very subtle hint to the Tropical theme, look no longer. Mugs are the way to go, for sure. You can easy place them in the cupboard or keep them on your table as a decorative accessory. The multicoloured Parrots do tie in with the theme but without over whelming someone into buying a large item.

This pillow is just wonderful. The contract of the black and white fish with the blue and turquoise background is enough to make anyone swoon! Place this on a simple sofa and you have your base for the theme. The brilliant thing about pillows is that they are so easy to add to bring colour into your home and they are very noticeable without having to spend a lot of money. You could go all out and purchase one which may be embellished, but we thought we’d show you a lovely one that gives the Tropical feel without much effort.

Pineapple Plant Pot- http://bit.ly/PKq294

Fancy making your plants look like a Pineapple? These plant pots are brilliantly innovative when it comes to any type of gardening. Contrast these plant pots with a Strelitzia reginae (commonly known as a Bird of Paradise plant) to go full speed ahead with the theme. Nothing says Tropical better than a pineapple, that’s for sure!
