Northtown is a residential haven master planned in the Tropical Contemporary style, a design philosophy that brings the best of nature indoors. And with Phase 1 now ready for homebuilding, we’ve compiled some design tips and inspirations for your home.

 

REACH FOR THE SKIES

High ceilings promote better air circulation and natural temperature cooling.

For rooms where people converge, like the living or dining area, you can install ceiling fans to keep the room cool. You can also accentuate the lofty headroom with ceiling lamps, which work both as a light source and as statement pieces.

Skylights are another great addition, as they bridge your home’s interiors and the refreshing natural landscape outside.

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

Expansive windows are also a key feature of Tropical Contemporary design as they allow for better ventilation and natural light.

SHOW YOUR TRUE COLORS

When it comes to color palettes, remember that less is more. Opt for neutral tones such as whites, beiges, and greys, which create a breezy, laid-back atmosphere in your home.

If you’d like to incorporate some color, think nature-inspired tones such as greens, oranges, and yellows.

GO ALL NATURAL WITH TEXTURES

House plants and other greenery are perfect for Tropical Contemporary design, as they seamlessly marry the indoors with outdoors. Go for air-purifying plants, like snake plants or ficuses.

Hardwood floors and wooden furniture are not only elegant, timeless, and durable; they also tie up your home back with nature.

For homeware, choose pieces made from natural materials, such as rattan chairs, bamboo baskets, and stone end-tables.

WHAT’S YOUR ACCENT?

Accent pieces should be eye-catching without being visually overwhelming. Good options include items that double as art or wall murals.
