The living room revolves around the botanical painting which influences the choice of furnishings of the furniture around. The all white flooring symbolises the snow and the copper chinnar leaves scattered on the floor bring in the flavour of the fall season. The vertical fins on pivot add an element of privacy to the dinning area as well as create an interesting and playful element in living space.

With large overhangs and exposed concrete roofs , the house is designed to brace the Goan tropical rains. The inner courtyards around tall existing trees as the several louvred spaces keep the house passively cool and well ventilated in the tropical hot climate. Most of the glazing is double glazed and is oriented towards the north to allow minimal heat and direct sunlight into the house.
Tropical decor is all about comfort and ease — it infuses the home with a relaxing, island-style vibe. Island homes are built for entertaining and living the indoor-outdoor lifestyle, which is why oversize porches, lanais, outdoor showers and breezy plantation shutters are common architectural elements. Tropical home decor focuses on textures, natural materials and vibrant colors; exotic woods, coral, palm trees, rattan, wicker and bamboo shine in this decor. Whether the home is in exotic Bali, vibrant Palm Beach or breathtaking Hawaii, tropical homes all have a vacation-style appeal.
