Dreaming of summer sunshine, swaying palm trees and the sand between your toes?
Us too! We’re all patiently waiting for that long-overdue trip somewhere tropical, and it can’t come soon enough.
As our ability to travel beyond our own shores has been curbed for the past year, wallpaper trends are starting to take an enticingly tropical twist in 2021.
All things bright and beautiful are working their way into our homes with this new Tropical Shores wallpaper trend.
Our designer, Elaine Butler, says, “Colour can have a dramatic effect on our emotions, and as we look to 2021, we’ll see a rise in uplifting, positive hues that create happy homes. Prints take inspiration from far-flung places, and exotic botanicals give us a sense of escapism and help bring the outdoors in.”
Our Lucie Annabel Palma Tropical Wallpaper in sage and cream really brings this Tropical Shores wallpaper trend to life.
The striking leafy pattern makes things feel fresh – and as this one is a washable wallpaper too – you can even use it to decorate your bathroom. It’s the perfect backdrop to a bath full of bubbles where you can kick back, relax and daydream about that tropical trip.
A bit more fanciful and funky, our Navy Flamingo Wallpaper captures the more exotic prints and patterns emerging with this Tropical Shores wallpaper trend. Its navy base colour provides the perfect contrast, making the pink flamingos and green palm leaves pop.
In 2021, we’ll also see these tropical prints get even bigger and better with large scale wall murals used to create dramatic, show-stopping feature walls.
With this Tropical Shores trend, it’s all about letting your walls take centre stage. So, to style this look, stick with simple accents, organic textures, woven touches and plenty of large indoor plants.
Make a statement with tropical leaf wallpaper
Drawing influence from the outdoors, gorgeous green leafy wallpaper is making a big comeback – and the bigger the print, the better.
Whether you’re choosing wallpaper for your bathroom, bedroom or living room, these bold botanicals create a vibrant style that works well in any room.
Our Tropicana Floral Leaf Wallpaper blends a blush pink background with a mix of green leaves to create a tastefully tropical design. This space is fun and fresh – and combining this wallpaper with classic white wood panelling really accentuates the print.
Keeping things cool and crisp, style with marble effect flooring and matching pastel velvet furnishings to create a space that channels your dream destination.
As tropical interior decor starts to take a more daring route, we’ll also see deeper colours and larger, more vivid prints gain popularity in 2021.
Our Midnight Tropics Wall Mural demonstrates this rich mix of colours set to create dramatic dream destination style interiors. This full-scale mural with its beautiful, oversized green palm pattern creates a stunning feature wall.
To create the ultimate tropical vacation vibe, keep things simple and style with a mix of white and natural wood furnishings and some real-life leafy foliage in seagrass planters.
Escape to the tropics with exotic animal wallpaper
Taking our love of all things leafy up a notch, exotic animal wallpaper will also be key to this Tropical Shores trend.
Think brightly coloured parrots and cockatoos, flamboyant flamingos and jungle animals.
These exotic prints will definitely add a tropical touch to your interiors.
The dark black background brings the various wild and wonderful jungle creatures to life, creating a curious and quirky focal point in your room.
It’s a design for true tropical trendsetters.
To recreate the look, style with natural woods and pastel soft furnishings that complement the colours in this eclectic design.
Circling back to those larger and more vivid prints, our Tropical Heights Wall Mural will make your imagination run wild.
This vibrant wall mural features a mix of tropical trees and exotic animals, set against a fresh pink background. With leopards, sloths and parrots frolicking amongst the foliage, this mural is designed to add energy and interest to your interiors.
To style, choose neutral colours and natural materials that don’t compete with the tropical transformation you’ve made to your walls.
Tropical wallpaper designs are bang on trend this year, providing some much-needed escapism and filling our homes with positive vibes.
So, will you be taking a walk on the wild side and embracing all things bright and beautiful?
