The tropical trend was quite a hit throughout 2017 and is making a comeback this year, evolving with more gorgeous greens and vibrant colours
This season is all about injecting your home with a little paradise of its own, from tropical decor to bold leaf prints. The tropical trend will see your home full of colour, ready for the dazzling sun. But don’t worry if you’re not too sure on where to start as we have it covered!
Spruce up your sofa with some bold colours
Cushions are the perfect way to incorporate colour into your home and can be easily changed from season to season, without having to completely strip your walls and redecorate. The best thing about cushions is that you can mix and match. Feature a couple of neutral based cushions along with a heavyweight print, which is sure to complement your decor.
Get the trend! This lovely palm leaf cushion on a white background from Zazzle is sure to impress. £25.75 www.zazzle.co.uk
Transform your room with a quirky rug
Rugs can really inject extra colour and warmth into a space and are super soft on your feet. Using a tropical themed rug with a neutral colour palette will work in almost any room and bring the outdoors in.
Try this modern Beaumont botanical design rug from Wayfair, which works both indoors and outdoors. £41.09 www.wayfair.co.uk
Bring life to your bed sheets
If you have bare minimal decor then bold bed sheets can often refresh the entire look of your room and make a strong statement. Bright colours can bring warmth to a room, filling it with plenty of colour and enhancing light.
This colourful tropical leaf and floral print Floresta duvet has a matt satin finish for extra softness and comfort. £28.00-£46.00 www.dunelm.com
Light up your home
When it comes to lampshades and lights we often tend to stick to neutral themes but change it up a little and add a splash of exotic colour. Vibrant lampshades can add a stylish touch which can make a real statement in your home.
This inspiring Silhouette Cotton Lampshade Teal Lemur in Egg Yolk will instantly ensure that your home is full of colour and features a jungle scene with palm leaves, hibiscuses and playful lemurs. From £40.00 www.redcandy.co.uk
Update your wall with artwork
Artwork can add a touch of sophistication to any room and tropical prints will add both colour and texture! Not only will art give your home a quick seasonal make over but it will also freshen up your style.
This palm leaf botanical giclee art print is perfect for a tropical style interior and would look great as a set or on its own. £25.00 www.notonthehighstreet.com
