Homeware and interiors isn’t something I’ve always been interested in, but since starting my new job doing marketing for an online homeware retailer, I’ve found myself immersed in the world of cushions, candles, bedding and everything else in between. Having spent many hours searching the latest S/S17 trends, one of the stand-outs was definitely tropical homeware and all things palm leaves, green and of course, pineapples – I’ve got a dedicated pineapple post lined up soon too!
I’ve picked out some of my favourites coming from the likes of H&M with their seriously covetable Pineapple range, including this Metal Napkin (or anything really) Holder and this amazing Palm Leaf Cushion, and Oliver Bonas who’s whole tropical range is pretty fabulous.
Next also have subtle hints at tropical with there selection of Bedding and Wallpaper – it’s a tad too bold for me but I know it’d make for a great feature in a room. Matalan is also a great one, especially for bedding, although I do find heading in-store is usually better as the online selection isn’t always as great.
With amazonian inspired prints, bold primary green and blue hues and statement ceramic shapes filling the shops and online retailers, there’s so much choice that you could literally create your own tropical paradise in your living room or bedroom. As I don’t currently have a house and only have one room to work with, I wont be injecting this trend into my lifestyle just yet, but if I did, I know I’d be popping around at least a few subtle hints. But if you’re brave enough to house the boldness of this trend, I say go for it!
What are your thoughts on the S/S17 Tropical homeware trend? Would you try it in your home?
