After a winter that was seemingly never ending (May was giving me serious Narnia vibes), summer has, at long last, graced us with its presence! I write this whilst sitting on my balcony in a 29°C heat which inevitably had me craving tropical vibes.
Think Hawaiian shirts, cocktail umbrellas and tiki huts as I share some of my favourite tropical inspired hotels, bars, restaurants and residential spaces.
Leo’s Oyster Bar, San Fransisco
Think vintage vibes and old school glamour…
Bourne and Hollingsworth, London
This place is a treat for all senses! Not only a stunning interior, but the brunch menu also doesn’t disappoint!
La Parada del Mar, Cape Town
A melting pot of influences from Miami, Cuba and Ibiza… enough said really.
Eclectic patterns, rich tones, colours and textures and organic materials all aid the tropical theme of this restaurant.
Casa Cook, Rhodes
Contemporary bohemian vibes of the reception set the tone for this boutique hotel on the island of Rhodes.
Cocktail Bar, Athens
Designed by Studio Noh, this cocktail bar and restaurant was influenced by tropical vegetation, referenced in the material palette and styling.
Restaurant Bathroom, Unknown
More pink tones and banana leaf murals on walls and even the ceiling.
Palm Vaults, London
Blush vintage furniture offset with gold details ensure this Hackney cafe makes the list.
If you’re not shy of a bold mural, look no further…
