If you want a fresh take on a trendy style, why not go for a tropical minimalist home? This type of interior has all the hallmarks of tropical style—such as woven textures, natural materials, neutral tones, and wood—but with sleeker forms, and a restraint in decoration. Here are the pieces to achieve the look:

Start with a generously sized, all-white sofa.


Kerry Bianco Sofa, price available upon request, Calligaris

Add throw pillows with a subtle boho vibe.

A sculptural wooden stool can serve as an accent.


Solid Wood Stool, price available upon request, a11

Go for distressed metal finishes in seating.


Claude Chair, P3,400, Match Contract

Choose a rough-hewn center table to break the sleekness.


Suburban Reverie Live Edge Coffee Table, P36,000, Urban Abode

Simple stone planters add a modernist vibe.


Concrete Planters, prices available upon request, Crate & Barrel

Woven baskets create visual texture and double as storage.
