Last week instead of heading straight to the studio I sneaked in to Edinburgh with HB. We went to the botanics to have a look inside the tropical palm houses. Its well over a year now since my palm tree obsession started and it still seems to be going full swing, along with many other botanical obsessions which I have added on! There was a definite feeling of spring in the air as the sun was streaming through the enormous¬†pre-victorian windows. It was just a beautiful visual escape and so nice to feel warm after a long Scottish winter. I have noticed that it hasn’t taken long for the sizzling palm trend to be picked up by the interiors market (us included). Lots of designers have developed palm print ranges for 2015. I am particularly liking House of Hackney, they have a wonderful collection of interior pieces with a real 1930’s feel to them. They have embraced bold prints and bright emerald greens, although the tropical trend is not all about wild colours and statement walls it can be done in a more minimal way too, with a subtle pop of pattern that can be seamlessly introduced to your current home decor to create your own paradise. Our range of palm leaf prints are about bold graphic pattern and texture rather than bright busy colours. Showing that there are many ways to make sure you don’t get left in the shade this season.
