20 Tropical Bedroom Ideas and Designs
Whether you have a summer house on the beach or a loft in the city, a tropical décor will make you feel like every day is a sunny day!
Tropical décor is joyful, colorful, and yet cozy and very trendy. You can use your creativity to play with patterns and textures, and explore natural fibers and organic materials.
In this post, we will give you some ideas for tropical bedroom design and decoration, so that you feel inspired to make a total makeover in your bedroom, to transform it into a 5-star hotel suite.
If you want that relaxing beachy look in your bedroom, explore pastel colors for that sandy beach vibe, and play with accent colors and textures, from the serene blue of the sea to the colorful tones of green of the tropical gardens.
Natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and bamboo will give a tropical feel to the room. Use natural or reclaimed wood and bamboo, and explore natural fabrics like cotton and linen.
These natural materials can be mixed up with silk for a soft touch. Silk is a great décor piece in cushions or sofa scarves. A silk bedspread with a tropical motif over an organic cotton duvet cover is also a good call.
For a stylish and unique space, think of a wall mural with foliage motifs. They are simply astonishing! Or you can have an accent wall with a palm leaf motif instead, or framed botanical prints. A canopy bed with pure linen and silk curtain will make you feel like in a paradisiac tropical island.
What kid doesn’t love animals? You can choose a jungle-themed bedroom, so your little ones will feel they’re in a tropical rainforest!
If you want urban jungle décor, avoid synthetic materials, and choose natural, organic materials like wicker and bamboo. Make sure you have at least one feature wall, with jungle motifs (either a mural, wallpaper, or framed jungle prints).
Use wood tones, yellows, and greens to bring color to the bedroom, and fill the room with their stuffed animals to make the space feel joyful and cozy. Let your kids’ creativity run free with a chalkboard or drawing table, so their art will become part of the décor!
Don’t forget to add a fake fur bedspread, and some real or fake potted plants and foliage. Sisal rugs are another great idea for that tropical atmosphere you look for in a jungle-themed bedroom.

For a cozy and welcoming tropical flair, explore whites with a few accent colors in the bedding, pillows, and walls. Get inspired by the tropical atmosphere from beach resorts, with ceiling fans, dark wood tones for the bedroom furniture and flooring, and bring the green inside with a vertical garden or potted plants.
Use throw pillows to bring that pop of color in a neutral color pallet bedroom, so it feels like a tropical oasis. Embrace the tropical islands lifestyle making your room a warm and comfortable space that transpires hospitality. But remember that tropical style decoration encompasses the beachy vibe of paradise islands, but also nautical style, British Colonial, and the sophisticated Bali exotic style.
So, go blue and white for nautical, and use dark-stained rattan, timber and bamboo furniture for the British Colonial style, with white cotton linens and greenery, to bring the outdoors inside.
If you prefer the spiritual vibe of the Bali style, choose wood, bamboo and other natural elements mixed with white bedding, so that the accent colors come from accessories, like framed art, rugs, bedspreads, cushions, and throw-ins. Balinese style also includes stones and gold and brass sculptures, and bamboo shades for the windows.

You may want to transform your modern-style bedroom into a tropical oasis, by adding some accessories to your existing furniture. Start with a neutral color pallet for the bedding, and sofa or armchair covers. Then spicy it up by using throw-ins, bedspreads, cushions with patterns and colors for that beachy resort atmosphere.
Bring tropical foliage into the room with potted plants, wallpaper or framed art. Use natural or fake foliage to brighten up the room.
In modern-style decor, less is more. So, stick to the basic natural elements in earthy and neutral tones, and add organic materials in lamps, ceiling fan and shades.
In tropical-inspired design, the walls make all the difference. Do not underestimate the impact of a feature wall. Murals with greenery motifs set the tone for a true tropical décor.
You can choose removable wallpaper instead, or fill up a wall with framed art and make it the focal point of the décor.
Remember that green is not the only color to use in a tropical-style bedroom wall. You can choose a soft tone for the walls, with foliage, beach, or sea motifs, as shown in some of the pictures in this post.
