Greenery, Pantone and all that jazz…
Thanks to Pantone’s colour of the year 2017, which is basically any form of ‘green’, we are seeing palm leaf homewares having its day and no wonder as they introduce such a happy, sunny, tropical feel to any space! Whether it’s the living room, bedroom, bathroom or styling up a dinner party, you simply can’t go wrong with palm leaves and here are photos to prove it!
Palm leaf Artworks
Popping up a framed print – or better still, an original – of palm leaves is a quick way to bring in the tropics to your home’s interiors. This is one case where the maxim, ‘the bigger, the better’ is sooooo true! They have a sculptural-ness to them, are a strong visual and as such instantly set the tone for the space. Contrasting colours, such oranges, yellows and teals look fantastic with them, so work well with cushions, towels, lamps and other smalls in these hues. Equally, the strong green can bring some magic to a perfectly neutral room!
Cushions and other palm leaf homewares
Adding cushions with a palm print looks great in a range of styles and rooms. Here are some how-to shots for bedrooms and living rooms that totally rock the look. This type of cushions also looks great in an outdoor setting, whether by a pool or not! These pix prove that palm leaf homewares look great in almost any setting! If you’re really brave, curtains with palm leaf prints look FANTASTIC!
Ok, so I’m the first to admit that I LURVE WALLPAPER! And when I say that, I mean obsessed love! While using a feature colour to a room using just paint can really add to a space, when you add a print wallpaper, you really are bring the A game to your home. So, if you’re trying to achieve a lush tropical feel, or just like doing surprising and unpredictable interiors, then consider palm leaf paper! Seriously! I mean, how great does this bathroom look??
