Trend Alert: Tropical Paradise

28th May 2016

Hello Summer! It’s the trend that keeps giving and giving – palm and tropical prints galore again this spring-summer. Palm tree prints have been a part of interior design for decades and experienced huge popularity in  the 1940s with oversized banana and palm prints which are just as modern today. With the increasing demand for palm prints in  the home as well as the forthcoming Rio Olympics, we have seen the trend re-imagined and influencing clothing and fashion accessories. This time round, rather than palm & tropical prints for the home, this is how to add a tropical splash this summer with exotic birds and flowers and palm prints on kids’ fashion and women’s fashion. Here are a few of my favourites.
