Turn your space into a tropical paradise!
Jungle or tropical prints are the latest trend in design by combining decoration with natural elements. Textures and wallpapers with tropical motifs embellish your area, transforming it into a relaxing oasis or tropical island, reminiscent of beautiful memories of past summers. The bedroom, the bathroom, the guest or any other small space can be transformed into an exotic paradise, giving vivacity through explosions of colors. A wallpaper with a tropical motif can instantly change the aesthetics of a space as it causes the feeling of exploration, giving the sense to the person entering the space that it enters into a dense jungle.
The classic print with palm leaves is widespread in decoration as it has been used by designers for decades. A remarkable case was in 1942 when Don Loper, a renowned Hollywood decorator, “cloaked” the walls of the Beverly Hills Hotel with this typical tropical banana wallpaper. Seventy-five years later, replicas of this particular wallpaper can be found on the surfaces of furniture even in Dolce & Gabbana dresses, proving that the tropical motif as a trend remains always up-to-date and fashionable.
Mix & match and easily combine tropical patterns with furniture made of natural materials and with colors such as gold, green, red, blue and shades. Renew your space instantly by adopting this trend and enjoy an exotic getaway while staying in your own home!
