Whether you work a 9-to-5 job or you run your own business, there's one thing we can all agree on—hopping on a boat to visit a beautiful island is the best way to escape city life. For model, actress and host Sam Pinto, however, the ocassional getaway wasn't enough. She decided to take it a step further by transforming her home into a tropical paradise. 

Aside from being passionate about laidback living, she also has a knack for styling and working on DIY projects—in fact, Sam handpainted some of the accent pieces in her home when she needed a couple of metallic pieces to liven up her vignette of prints. 

If you’ve been planning on switching things up in your living area as well, you may want to use Sam’s space as inspiration. Filled with splashes of green and wooden elements, the snug living area will remind you of a secluded escape. Here are a few tropical-inspired design ideas we can learn from her humble abode:
