Lose yourself in the sultry depths of this exotic look

The tropical trend is a design aesthetic that has endured for decades, and for a good reason. It brings the warmth, vibrant colors, and lush foliage of the tropics right into your living space, creating an atmosphere of relaxation and exotic allure. Get ready to escape the urban jungle with tropical greens, botanical prints and tribal patterns to infuse the tropical trend into your home.

1. Find your tribe

Inspired by the deserts of the Middle East, the Oriel Sepia fabric from our Abigail Ahern collection is a beautiful hue. The burnt caramel toffee shade is perfect if you're looking to inject a beautiful yet subtle dose of colour into your room.

And be sure to incorporate natural textures like bamboo, rattan, and wicker in your furniture and décor. These materials give a casual, tropical feel to any room. Wicker chairs, bamboo blinds, and rattan light fixtures are great choices.

2. Night garden

Tropical prints, featuring palm trees, hibiscus flowers, and exotic wildlife, are a staple of this trend. You can use them in a variety of ways: on upholstery, drapery, wallpaper, or even decorative throw pillows. These prints instantly transport you to a lush island paradise and that’s the feeling we get every time we look at this dreamy bathroom.

Cool marble and bright white porcelain stand out against the darkly glamorous wallpaper and charcoal grey plantation shutters.

Best of all, these moisture-resistant shutters ensure that this room is high on style and practicality.

3. Jungle outpost

Give your kitchen a back-to-basics feel with rough-hewn planks and vintage copper pendant lights and bring contrast to the rough and ready feel with classy cabinetry and luxe brass accents.

Dress your doors and windows in Roller blinds featuring a prim floral motif and offset this refined print with a vertiginous palm and zebra print rug.

4. Travel the world

Capturing the joy of travels far and wide, the global décor trend is bold and upbeat bringing Mediterranean hues, botanical prints and woven textures to interiors.

The Mali Coral Roman blind perfectly brings this theme to life, framing this pretty dressing area with a beautiful pink and orange blend.

5. Moody blooms

Be brave and  let bold colours like rich greens take centre stage in more discreet and calming areas of the house. Use darker florals and biophilic designs to add a sense of depth and
drama into calmer spaces like your bedroom.

Statement teal curtains compliment larger windows perfectly, as along with flowers growing upwards, give your space a sense of height.
