Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : October 20th 2013 Contents Kaelanne Jordan
Tobago homes have a distinct charm
and flair to their architecture and accom-
modation. The ambience of the island
coupled with their unique decor creates
the perfect setting that complements
the rich culture of Tobago.
Whilst the decor style of Tobago has a
unique tropical feature, did you know that
you can create your perfect sanctuary
with these easy elements from choosing
the right furniture, accessories and art-
• THROW PILLOWS
Decorative throw pillows in various
sizes, shapes and hues add versatility to
the decor and aesthetics of any home. Not
only are throw pillows useful for comfort
or convenience, they can also be used to
reflect the comfortable, cool and relaxed
atmosphere of the island.
Whether you choose gorgeous fabrics
with sumptuous fabrics or a neutral colour,
adding the right mix of multi- purpose
throw pillows to your sofa, chair or bed
can either spice up your space to a con-
temporary, tropical or chic abode.
Sometimes, an empty wall or table just
cries out for attention. These are great
places to display art. Highlight your home
with some portraits of Tobago's rich history.
Whether they be small paintings you can
hang on your walls or large sculptures, all
add traditional ambience to any room and
also strengthen your home appeal.
Luckily, you do not need to go far in your
search of these pieces- you can source
these displays at the Tobago Museum, the
Luise Kimme Sculpture Museum or at any
local museum or art gallery for inspiration.
Elegant, versatile hardwood furniture is
always an excellent choice when creating
the perfect background for your home- To-
bago style. This maintenance free furniture
seems light and airy and also allows a
touch of nature that is reminiscent of the
West Indian style. Choose from teak wood,
mahogany and pine etc for your chairs,
sofas, tables, cabinets, beds and other
spaces to make it a cozy, comfortable den.
• WINDOW TREATMENTS
Curtains help provide a soft warm envi-
ronment as well as creating colour, pattern
and texture for your home decor window
There are so many options and choices of
fabrics, tracks, rods, styles and draperies
that will not only suit the windows in your
home but will enhance and compliment your
decor and bring your home to life.
Whether you want to create a modern,
contemporary or traditional style, the main
goal when decorating your home is to cre-
ate a visual that you like.
