Trends in decoration: tips and tricks

Fashion not only influences what we wear, but also the decorative elements of our environment. To modernize the furniture of your terrace, living room or business, the trick is to make the right mix of fabrics and colors. The Amazon prints, although at first glance it seems so, are not difficult to combine.


Cushions: tropical themed prints are a perfect accessory to give a touch of color and vitality to your room. Experiment and create a relaxed atmosphere by combining natural fabrics with soft colored furniture. It is best when the main piece such as a sofa or armchair is a plain color. Complementing it with cushions of palm trees or leaves, you can add other cushions with similar prints or green or beige colors to have a summery corner.

Puffs: comfortable and functional, they are now also elements that help to keep a room cool and summery. It is the best complement you can choose to keep your home or business always up to date. Because a puff normally incorporates a removable cover, it is very easy to make use of the new trend. Simply get several covers of different tropical upholstery and change them as you see fit. Don’t be afraid to use these bold and colorful prints, just combine them with soft pastel colors. In order not to overload the environment, two or three puffs of this type will be enough for you to feel the spirit of the Amazon jungle.

Note: In Fiaka we have Amazonas fabric so you can combine it with your favorite furniture. Try it on a sofa, an armchair or on cushions.

Bet on a fun summer

As a decorative idea you can incorporate some pictures that complement your tropical room. Among all the crafts that can be made, we especially like one: a picture of leaves in a glass frame. These are natural leaves (choose the ones you like the most) that, first of all, you have to dry for a while under pressure on a newspaper. When all the moisture has been removed, pick them up and carefully place them in a frame that you have chosen beforehand. The style is just up to you: you can opt for a glass one with a golden rim if you want something more elegant and chic, or a wooden one if you prefer to give it a natural touch.

You can also opt for the most economical idea out there. What many interior designers do is to frame the piece of fabric that was used to upholster the main furniture such as sofas or armchairs. In this way it is very easy to create the unity of the design of different elements of the same room. Try it with the tropical leaves, you will love it for sure.
