Wallpaper Trends: Get set for Some Escapism With Tropical Shores
Dreaming of summer sunshine, swaying palm trees and the sand between your toes? Us too! Let’s face it, holidays are never far from anyone’s mind and when it comes to destinations, a tropical paradise is always going to be a winner.
It’s little surprise then, that the love of all things tropical is spilling over into our home decor. Design-savvy decorators are embracing the opportunity to bring the outdoors in, putting a fresh spin on things with large, luscious palm prints and exotic animals inspiring eye-catching wallpapers and murals.
Our designer, Elaine Butler, says, “Colour can have a dramatic effect on our emotions, and collections such as Tropical Shores, that include uplifting, positive hues are the perfect option to bring a feeling of joy and optimism to homes. These prints take inspiration from far-flung places, and exotic botanicals, to create a stunning final look that can’t help but put you in a positive state of mind.”
Make a statement with tropical leaf wallpaper
Bring the Tropical Shores wallpaper trend to life with striking leaf patterns. This is the perfect way to bring style to any room in your home, and with so many washable wallpaper options 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.
However, far from being restricted to smaller spaces, we love to see tropical prints used to full show-stopping effect, large scale wall murals that provide the perfect way to easily create an eye-catching feature wall.
