Tropical design can be modern, traditional, a little bohemian, or even all of these together. Here, an Akari paper lantern by 20th-century artist Isamu Noguchi lends a modern edge, while a white-and-blue scheme create a classic coastal undercurrent. Traditional velvet trimmed curtains with tiebacks soften the look and provide a visual divide between living and dining areas.
