Surround Yourself With Tropical Vibe


Is your current wall color suitable for this tropical palm tree decorating theme? Or should you paint & refresh your walls?

Contrasting or Coordinating Colors for your palm tree decoration ideas. Often your furniture can be darker than palmy inspired wall colorings. 

  • Or the reverse. As whitish shades of furniture contrast well with darker greens, blues, grays or tannish colors for walls. Going well with your theme.

Decide Which Color is Suitable. Coordinate with the furniture you have, or will be purchasing. Find the color + its name, & print out to match with paint swatches. Or if your paint store is updated with this: bring them the color code details.

Paint Colors - Palm tree decoration ideas for painting:

  • A pale green such as Crayola's spring green (O).Or honeydew green, tea green, green earth, mint cream, aero blue, key lime, or Nyanza.
  • A subtle gray or whitish like zebra white, white chocolate (O) & tooth. Beachy whites like timberwolf, seashell, platinum, parchment, papaya whip, old lace, milk, medium champagne, linen, Isabelline, ivory, Gainsboro, floral white, cultured, cream, bone, alabaster, almond or antique white.

Palm Tree Decorating Ideas With Wallpaper


Prefer Wall Paper? A more labor-intensive, yet rewarding end result.

Find Palm Themed Wallpaper

  • For use with all your walls, go with a subtle palm styling
  • Or get a bit bolder! If you just wallpaper a section for a focus wall.
  • Not into that much labor? 
  1. Then maybe wallpaper borders with palm tree designs would be a good compromise.
  2. Set around the top of walls, or in a "chair-rail" positioning.
  3. Another compromise with a bit less work would be to add a smaller sized wall sticker. The type that's like a mural. Or a small mural for a portion of a room's wall. Like This One...

Palm Tree Decorating Accessory Ideas


Now think of additions for the floor, chairs & sofa.

Your Furniture

Consider the basic color & style. Is the upholstery fabric patterned? Or solid?

  1. Palm patterned pillows go well on solid color furniture.
  2. Solid color pillows echoing wall colors work well on patterned upholstery. Even perhaps "plastered" with a central palm emblem.
  • A floor pillow for lounging could have a nice effect. 
  1. There's even specialty ones for kids. How cool & fun is that!

Throw Around Your Palm Decorating!


  • An option is a Blanket Throw with similar color considerations. (Even warm climates get cold days/evenings!)
  1. Drape it over the back of your sofa.
  2. Have it flow over the side arm of your cozy armchair.

Rugs or Carpeting

Would you want a tropical Palm Themed Throw Rug or area rug?

  • Think of the ways to harmonize with all the other encompassing features. 
  • Plus the practical terms of dirt attraction & subsequent care. Is the outdoor/indoor type better for that?
  • A Woven Mat with a straw-like look has that tropic feel. Works well coordinating with your palm tree decoration ideas. Perhaps at the room's entrance.
  • Or how about placing Palm Ceramic Tiles for the entryway.

Dress Up Your Windows for Palm Calm


Here's a place in the living room for several palm tree decoration ideas:

  • Gauzy Sheer Draperies over a large window gives that tropical mood. Particularly when your windows can open to screens, for a nice warm (or cooling) breeze. The drapes swirl & billow, adding to the ambience.
  1. Linen Over-Drapes could top them off for a gorgeous style. Coordinate the Color for the room's overall esthetic.
  • Smaller windows could have matching curtains. Or have only A Valance at the top. A nice choice for a kitchen window too!
  • Another option is using bamboo roll-up shades for small windows. 
  • Or as Liz did here, placing a palmy decor feature in front of the blinds she already had. Budget friendly, working mostly with what you have.
