Finally, foliage is taking over the world. We’ve totally fallen for this home decor trend and here’s how you can turn your home into a lush and leafy haven.
Totally obvious trend alert – everyone’s still going jungalow. And the world’s current obsession has taken a leaf (quite literally) from this popular home decor. It’s time to going bananas for leafy prints and foliage-themed everything. Because who doesn’t want to come home to a tropical paradise! Want your island vacay summer vibe to last forever? Bring home that holiday feeling with these five easy breezy decor ideas.
Creeping up the wall
Go big and go bold with wallpapers that are wild – think banana leaves, monstera, ferns and fiddle leaf fig. There’s no wrong way of experimenting with foliage print wallpaper – it can go on a large feature wall like an impressive piece of mural art or uplift smaller areas on kitchen cabinets, wardrobe doors and room dividers. Our jaws are dropping for Designers Guild’s Christian Lacroix series and Pierre Frey line of wallpapers stocked at Romanez. You’ll also find vibrant, forest-like wall coverings at Home Lovers Wallpaper Centre and Tatum (ask for the French brand De Gournay).
Cuddle up with cushions
Aren’t fully on board with boho-tropical jungalow trend but love the idea of fiddling with leafy prints? Cushion are perhaps the easiest and most affordable way to add hints of green. Pick the prettiest cushions in the leaf of your choice at Hipvan, Singapore Trading Post, Creatively Active Minds and Lazada.
Fabricate a jungle
With lovely leafy fabrics, you can pretend you live on a warm equatorial island (oh wait, you do!). Upholster a loveseat or just drape your windows with curtains – bigger the leafy print, the more convincing the look! We’re drooling over these gorgeous fabrics by Cole & Son’s collection at Goodrich as well as Designers Guild at Romanez. While you’re at it, get some of those verdant prints into your bedroom with Amazon-inspired sheets from Linen House and Woot Woot.
Leaves for dinner
No beating around the bush here – tropical prints on dinnerware are absolutely darling. Imagine picking fruits off a plate with a monstera leaf print while sipping on pineapple coconut martini on a Saturday afternoon – play ocean sounds in the background and call it a mini vacation. We’re all heart-eyes for stoneware ceramics (3 Little Picks), cotton placemats (Shopee), leafy coffee sets (Decoriia) and plates that remind us of paradise (Kiyolo).
And when we need whimsical tropical goodies, we rely on Creatively Active Minds for everything from exotic table lamps and palm tree bottle openers to trays and wall plates.
Get big with plants
Sure, cushions and bedspreads might be the easiest way to bring home some leafy goodness but we’re voting plants as the single prettiest way of getting your tropical on. From air plants and terrarium to indoor plants and faux foliage (Ikea, Vanda Win, Crate & Barrel and 3 Little Picks) – let it grow.
