Williams Sonoma Home Spring 2009 British Colonial tropical living room
 

Williams Sonoma Home Spring 2009 British Colonial

Inspired by exotic travel and gracious living, British Colonial infuses classic English style with tropical prints, patterns and textures. Dark woods and neutral fabrics create a warm base for bold motifs, cane weaves and accents in warm spice colors. The result is a setting of unhurried luxury and unmistakable island character.

Is it possible to see the rest of the room - Is that an ottoman on the other side - that is matching the pillow on the couch? I have been struggling with a sectional sofa that has it's own ottoman and haven't used a coffee table. I like this idea if that's what I'm seeing.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Living the Island Life
This scene from Williams-Sonoma Home definitely borrows a page from the Hicks playbook. Again, the room is full of real, grownup furniture, but it's casual enough that a little sand won't be the end of the world. I like, too, the art selections. While I love jokey, friendly art, sometimes it's refreshing to see works that are a little more serious in a casual setting.
3. Tropical inspired furnishings. During this time, the solid and formal designs of the Victorian era were ultimately adapted to accommodate more tropical locales. Carved pineapples, lattice work and turned elements were carved into woods and used alongside bamboo, rattan and leather accents. The pieces took their inspiration from the tropics but retained elements of British formality with dark woods and turned elements. Get this look: Classic cane chairs are an easily accessible furniture piece that can help you get the British Colonial look in your home. Try using a chair or two as an accent in a modern room, or immerse yourself in this style by matching a chair with side, coffee and sofa tables.
