I had pulled this Cole & Sons Palm Jungle paper to use in a client’s bathroom last week and just found these great images of it in use in Sue de Chiara’s guest bathroom (you can also shop her great site here) Palm prints have seen a huge resurgence, particularly the bold green versions a la the Beverly Hills Hotel and Dorothy Draper. And while I love my Greenbrier Palm pajamas I think a lot of my clients (and I) prefer a toned down version of the bold print in their homes. Crazy print papers done in a neutral tones allow you to have fun without feeling “trendy”, per se.
See how this makes a statement without screaming?
Grey and muted palm prints pop up in a few places- like India Hick’s new collection (the scarf below). Loving how these pieces add a dash of tropical delight without feeling like you stepped into a tiki bar.
