A Tropical touch for your home interior

A Tropical touch for your home interior

Is summer finally here? As I sit here typing with a view of the sea and the sun shining it certainly feels summery – if not quite tropical! There are some lovely new textiles out from Clarke & Clarke. “Inspired by the French countryside, the Fougères collection is elegant, charming, classical and contemporary. It has a vintage feel and the palette includes natural, noir, raspberry and citrus”.  The pineapple trend seems to be staying on course and Clarke & Clarke have a lovely new print – Ananas – from their Fougères collection. Shown here made up as a lamp shade – this would also look great as a cushion (perhaps piped in a bright pink or lime green?) or as a Roman blind. My long time favourites Rockett St George never let me down for interior styling – and have plenty to offer with a tropical theme. A pineapple nightlight, vase and ornament can all be snapped up plus melamine plates featuring tropical birds, and don’t forget to add the Toucan snow globe (yes really!) to your basket before you check out. The Barneby Gates pineapple wallpaper, also available from Rockett St George, in pink/ red is another winner for me. This would look great in a cloak room – what a great feature wallpaper. Just looking at it makes me smile! If you haven’t already, then check out the Rockett St George summer look book here Rocket St George Look Book I also love the Flamingo print from Clarke & Clarke which is in the Fougères collection. Seen here made up as a Roman blind. Flamingo’s seem to be making something of a comeback right now....
