Caribbean Chic. Decorating with Bougainvillea

Caribbean style is very diverse and can differ considerably in different islands depending on their heritage and influences. In some instances spaces are bright and vibrant where others tend to be more traditional with British colonial influences as seen here. I have an appreciation for both the bright colours and the richness and simplicity of white linens and dark mahogany. I personally love nothing more than a bright pop of colour against the white and bougainvillea is a perfect way to do this. 

Even better if you are lucky enough to live somewhere with a warm climate such as the Caribbean, South America or even countries in the Mediterrean you can often find bougainvillea bushes in abundance. For more tips on how to introduce a little more tropical or Caribbean style into your home as seen here
