We have all spent a lot more time sat inside staring at the same four walls over the last 12 months due to lockdown. If you are anything like us, you will have been kept busy doing DIY to your home. However, if you haven’t managed to redecorate that spare bedroom you have been wanting to do for years now is your chance. If the grey trend that has been dominating social media for the last few years isn’t your cup of tea, we have the perfect tropical fabrics for you.
Tropical leaves and animal prints are the new grey.
Exotic plants and jungle animals are becoming increasingly popular across fashion, art and home decor. By introducing bold clashing colours, you can lift your interior and bring the outdoors into your home. If yellows and pinks together aren’t your style botanical prints in softer pastels shades are a good way of celebrating nature whilst keeping a more understated look. Collections such as ILIV’s BCI Imprint and Charnwood would be perfect for a simplistic but effective look.
However, if you are feeling brave we have a huge range of new tropical fabrics from big brands such as ILIV, Chatham Glyn, Belfield and Harlequin that give you the desired jungle vibes. These fabrics are designed to be a feature taking inspiration from leafy foliage. Don’t be scared by bold patterns, you could simply add an accent cushion or a roman blind to create a vibrant feel without taking over your whole room.
A Feel Of Escapism.
Shades of green instantly generate a relaxing and positive energy making you feel fresh and relaxed. Mix this with dusky tones of pink to keep a feel of femininity if this is what you desire. If not add deep hues of blue to make your room feel cosy and offer a contemporary aesthetic. Not only can you mix and match colours the most effective interiors we have seen incorporate both thriving leafy prints and textured animal prints. This can be achieved by choosing a bold palm leaf wallpaper and accessorising with stunning tiger print cushions. In fact, you could go one step further with full tiger print bedding. Add oriental birds to give a feel of escapism within your home teamed with lush botanicals.
If animals aren’t your thing vintage style florals mixed with bold dark colours such as wine, bottle green and black create a sense of opulence. A monochrome statement could act as a modern accent cutting through the intricate wallpapers and fabrics. Frame your windows with decadent floral material. To add a grand feel team your curtain material with a goblet or triple pleat heading especially if you have high ceilings.
