Tropical Beach Vacation – at home!
It is truly easy to get the summer feeling at home with a few small accessories. Get my six quick tips for getting the tropical look for home and shop for these highlighted products at SkimbacoShop.com.
The super fine, intricate hand printed illustration on this cushion cover features a fisherman’s net, cast out to get the catch of the day. This reminds me of Beruwala beach in Sri Lanka. Turn it over to see the fun orange fish print pattern on the reverse. Shop for Catch of the Day cushion cover ($87)
A combination of gorgeous fresh greens with a pop of bright orange, the fun palm trees print on this cushion has been inspired by scenes of men climbing to pick coconuts in Kerala, South India. Reversible, the other side features a mint green illustrated pattern of woven palm leaves. Shop for Coconut Palm Pickers cushion cover ($87)
Add tropical fresh cut flowers in a vase or add succulents to bring a tropical touch for your home with plants that are easy to take care of, even if you hang out at the beach or pool most of the summer.
Hand-turned cork planters designed for desert plants such as succulents and cacti. Cork is naturally porous making it an ideal material for plants. Each planter has a shellacked interior and finished on the outside with a natural beeswax. Due to the nature of the material each planter and unique and one-of-a-kind. Color and size might vary. Shop for large cork planter ($75)
Art prints are the easiest way to add tropical punch of color to your home.
Desert Agave in 8 x 10 inches $37.
Palm tree print in 30×40 inches $375.
I love collecting smooth rocks and seashells from my beach trips! I display them in glass vases or wooden bowls. I love this beautifully refined wooden bowl, it is carefully hand dipped in a simple and modern crossed color pattern in Sage Green. The colored portion is a soft rubber which makes them durable and non-slip. The wood is left natural. Shop for the walnut bowl ($56).
I have very minimal living room with all white furniture – it is easy to add color and change the seasonal look with throw pillows and blankets. The Pablo summer blankets work great as beach or picnic blankets, or even as towels, but are heavy duty and stylish also in your living room all year long.
Greens mix with vibrant stripes creating the Pablo blankets and towels for your hacienda or simply your balcony. This blanket/beach towel is inspired by love of cotton jacquard weaving, mixing up colors and styles that are at home both inside or outside – beach, park, pool, sofa or bed – the choice is yours. Perfect as a towel or a throw! Shop for Pablo summer blanket ($149).
If your summer plan is to spend as much time outdoors as possible – make it easy to leave the house for summer fun! Add storage baskets for small items like sunglasses, sun lotion, and pool pass, and larger storage baskets for summer totes, flip flops and beach towels. These will help you to stay organized and get out of the house for summer fun as fast as possible!
The handmade crocheted vessel is made from thick and robust natural twine, with contrasting trim in either orange or black. The largest size is $81 and 13.7″ in diameter.
The XXL round storage basket will make a beautiful touch for your cozy home! Leather straps give an elegant & classy look. %100 handmade fabric basket is really great to get organized & stay neat. You can use fabric baskets for so many different things. Shop for the Geometric Round Storage Basket ($122).
