Tropical leaves and palm tree patterns bring the urban jungle mood into your four walls!
With their large, shiny leaves, tropical plants look very decorative and give rooms a whole new atmosphere. No wonder that tropical leaves have been one of the hottest decorative trends since 2017! And this trend will continue for a long time because it gives us a feeling of summer, warmth and vacation. Today we are going to show you a few nice ideas on how you can bring a good pinch of exoticism into your own four walls by using lush greenery and botany prints.
Tropical leaves bring a holiday feeling to your home!
The bold green of plants and botany prints suit almost every interior, but are best used in combination with styles such as glamor, boho, colonial style and mid-century modern. Scandinavian minimalism can also be revitalized with a touch of exoticism. No matter which style of living is currently popular with you, there are countless ways in which you can implement the green leaf motifs in the furnishings. Here we show you some of them.
Tropical leaves adorn fabrics
Fabrics with tropical prints are one of the easiest ways to give your home a summery flair. Bed linen, curtains, carpets, shower curtains and pillowcases with leaf patterns are just the thing if you want to redecorate a room with little effort. The tropical look doesn’t always have to be brightly colored. A bedroom in gray, beige and white tones looks fresh and airy thanks to the bed linen in white-green.
Jungle feeling also in the spring-summer 2020 collection from H&M Home
The last Home Collection from H&M Home is also inspired by the tropical plants and botany prints. The lush green is combined with gold and white. The label covers pillowcases and bed linen as well as tablecloths in different shades of green for a uniform look. Natural materials and earthy tones go perfectly with it.
Tropical leaves types and names
Tropical plants like the Monstera is the epitome of the tropical look. In the print motifs, however, we also see a variety of beautiful leaf shapes that look extremely decorative. Popular urban jungle plants that are often used in tropical prints are:
The aralia (Aralia Sieboldii, Fatsia japonica)
The royal fern (Osmunda regalis)
The bird of paradise flower (Strelitzia reginae)
The dwarf banana tree (Musa acuminata)
The delicious window leaf (Monstera deliciosa)
The frangipani (plumeria)
The rubber tree (Ficus elastica)
The gold fruit palm (Dypsis lutescens)
Fan palms like the dwarf palm (Chamaerops humilis)
Botanical print wallpaper
Wallpapers with tropical leaves are another nice idea for those who want bigger interior changes than just a few pillows. A wallpaper in jungle look impressively highlights your bed and can highlight the sofa in the living room. You can also integrate tropical plants as pattern wallpaper in the bathroom.
If you live in a rented apartment, you can simply buy removable wallpaper. In addition, self-adhesive wallpapers are perfect for spicing up wall clocks, stairs and chests of drawers. Here you can see more ideas on how to decorate the staircase.
Spice up furniture with a tropical print
Remnants of wallpaper are a great way to freshen up old furniture quickly and easily. Chests of drawers, bedside tables and cupboards can easily be embellished with self-adhesive wallpaper. Old chairs get a new look with new upholstery!
Tropical leaves as wall art
Murals also bring wonderful tropical flair. From the dining room to the home office – they fit every room. Depending on the motif and material, you can easily adapt your posters to the respective room. The variety of motifs is very large and you are guaranteed to find a motif that suits your taste. Even a large-format, illustrative print of a Monstera leaf looks extremely decorative on the empty wall. Stylized posters in watercolor style are also a real eye-catcher. Combined with sayings or black and white graphics, a special ensemble is created.
Tropical leaves and natural materials
What is the best way to combine the tropical motifs? Rattan, bamboo, willow and of course wood! Mahogany and teak are a good choice for a tropically decorated room. They usually come from tropical areas and are very durable, so you can create a mood. For example, use sea grass baskets as a planter or for storing blankets or pillows. A round jute rug also has a natural, rustic look.
Jungle green and pink are a great color duo
Dark green and baby pink are a very charming combination in the apartment, especially for the girls’ room. Pink looks super girlish and takes the weight off the green. Green, white and light wood round off the whole thing perfectly.
Window stickers for the bathroom
Are you looking for a beautiful and unobtrusive bathroom decoration? A window film with leaf motif is a great idea for the bathroom window. These glass stickers offer sufficient privacy and still let the sunlight through. Window films can also be ordered cheaply online and printed with your own motif.
Dishes with tropical patterns for an exotic touch at the table
And why not bring a touch of exoticism to the table with a tropical decoration? Plates and tablecloths, which are reminiscent of the freshness of summer, create a beautiful, festive atmosphere. Gold-colored cutlery also provides a particularly elegant and luxurious touch on the festively laid table. If the tablecloth is patterned, use a single-colored tableware set. And vice versa: combine your patterned tableware with a single-colored table linen.
Idea for a simple craft project
Here’s a super simple craft project you can do on a free afternoon. You don’t need any templates or special materials to make these chic jewelry plates, just modeling clay and some color. Because the project is so simple, you can even implement it with your children. It is a great opportunity for them to let their creativity run wild.
Tools & materials:
Use a small bowl as a shape (e.g. 10 cm diameter)
Brush (flat and thin tip)
oven-hardening modeling clay
Acrylic craft paint (cream-colored, forest green)
Krylon pen for golden highlights
Form a clay ball and place it in your bowl. If you want to make several jewelry plates, make sure that all balls are the same size. Push the ball into the bowl to form an approximately 5 mm thick plate. Carefully remove the ball from the bowl and refine the shape further as needed. Bake the plates in the oven according to the directions in the package.
After cooling, paint the dishes with two coats. Use pencil to draw leaf shapes in bowls as a guide for painting. Brush the leaves with a very fine brush. Paint a different leaf shape on each bowl. Finally, spice up the edges and sides of the bowls with a gold marker.
