Vogue put out a list of the decor trends for 2017, and one of them was tropical prints. Inspired by the runways of Prada and Marc Jacobs, interior designer Lawrence Bullard says that we’ll see more of these prints on wallpapers and fabrics this year.
These prints range from sunny yellows to relaxing teals. When you live in a country like the Philippines, you’ll know that these prints will suit our homes nicely. We’ve handpicked items that will bring a tropical feel to your space—not limited to palm trees and coconuts.
If you can’t book a cruise trip just yet, then bring the beach and ocean closer with the Riviera Throw Pillow Cover (P600). Choose between prints that show beach umbrellas or sailboats, and place them on your couch. Available at Seek the Uniq.
H&M Home’s Leaf-Patterned Duvet Cover Set (P1,190) can help you rest better at night with its green and white motif. Available at SM Makati. and SM Megamall.
This Diptyche Sunset Wall Art (P729.75) adds to the tropical atmosphere of your home. After all, if you can’t see the sunset regularly, why not hang it on your wall? Available at SM Home.
When you’re done taking notes of Isabelle Daza’s table-setting tips, then add this Anahaw Placemat (P1,500) to the mix. It’s the perfect detail if you want to add a Filipino touch to your dinner table. Available online.
Pair your placemat with these hand-painted Pineapple Wooden Coasters (P300). Your dinner guests won’t miss their bright pink hue, trust us. Available at Seek the Uniq.
Break from all the leafy details with this Fornasetti Scented Candle Flora. You can put this in your living room or bathroom to make them smell like a fresh bouquet. Available at Ito Kish, 233 Nicanor Garcia, Bel-Air II, Makati City.
Let’s not forget lighting. Habitat’s HELENA Gold Flower Table Lamp (P1,809) is a nice accent to your desk as its vibrant appearance will make you feel awake. Available at UP Town Center and Glorietta 3.
We know that the tropical trend only mentioned prints, but we’d also like to add a little greenery—just like Pantone’s Color of the Year—to tie all these together. West Elm’s Faux Palm Leaf Branch (P1,094) is a nice addition to any table. Available at Estancia Mall.
