Support a local artist by getting them to do you up a bold painting of a tropical beach scene. Once the painting is done, you can use the colors as your inspiration for decorating the rest of the room.
34. Tropical Mural
Or, another idea is to get the artist to paint right onto the walls. With a dense jungle background, large birds, and faded images of palm trees, it almost looks like there is a tropical storm happening right behind your bed.
I don't know about you, but almost every time I go to the beach there is somebody playing their acoustic guitar or ukelele. I'm definitely not complaining as I love having a soft soundtrack as I gaze upon the crashing waves. Besides, having those guitars up on the wall may inspire you to learn a song or two yourself.
