You’ve probably seen it in every magazine and home decor store, the tropical style is one of the major trend of 2015. Tropical plants, flashy colors, pineapples and flamingos are everywhere.
I have to say that I’m not a huge fan of this trend for the interior, but I really like the idea of setting up a tropical garden in the patio.

I’ve prepared for you an article full of tropical inspirations for your outdoor as well as a shopping list who’ll allow you to turn your patio into an exotic paradise.
