Trend Tuesday: Banana Leaves

How freaking obsessed am I with banana leaves? It’s actually kind of strange (my iPhone case is even banana leaves). I love how the print is largely one color but can transport you to a tropical mindset instantly. The print is a bold one, so you have to fully commit to it if you want to pull it off.

A smaller way to incorporate this fun design into your home is a series of prints in sophisticated frames. The prints will cover the wall but with some separation it will act as a cohesive way to insert some life into on your walls. Also, the greenery acts as a clever way to trick people into thinking you can actually take care of a living thing (besides yourself). If you want to make a big impression, you can opt to use this print in your wallpaper, in just an accent wall or a smaller room to make the biggest impact. Another way to make your pattern choice stand out is upholster a center-piece of furniture in the bold design. Check out the examples below!

  1. It is a very soothing print, even as it is glamorous and exotic.
