It's trending: Sweet Tropicana-Eclectic Trends

It’s trending is a series of ongoing trends we are having right now here. What are the news?The ongoing Jungle Trend goes Pastel. And 50s.

Since all Interior Design Trends evolve in one way or the other, we can confirm in 2015, we are seeing the revival of the Sweet Tropicana vibe, highly influenced by fashion and somehow reminding us of the Californian 50s.

If you haven’t succumbed to the jungle fever yet, tropics are back with a much more feminine approach coming all pastel-infused.

Icons are pineapples (yes, still!), live foliage or if not available, printed palm leafs with a special mention on banana and monster leafs, and flamingos (apparently another keeper, who knew?!-though I believe we should move on). Key colours are all kind of pastels, set off with deeper botanical greens and graced sometimes with golden details.

Studio Pepe

A bit of tropicana feel in the home is the ultimate escape from reality, and (my favorite) Italian creative designer duo Studio Pepe knows better than anyone how to translate this micro trend into interior design. Flamingo pink and turquoise are the keywords for these images shot for Elle Decor Italia.

Pastel colors come often from spray paint and have inspired many diy projects for fun parties like this botanical theme done for a baby shower.

This place looks great. FOOUND is a concept store locatedin Geneva. It’s thought as a space where young artists and entrepreneurs gather sharing yoga classes, craft workshops, exhibitions and other events with a not to miss 50s feeling. I think the color combo is really inspiring with this rather dramatic backdrop, all set off with candy colors.

Let’s talk wallpaper.

Flamingos come in either a refined more classic style (left) or bolder pop look (right). It’s interesting to see how well the theme works for both styles just changing a few design features.

For the trendiest ones, mix tropical prints with any other prints. Fruits, vegetables, florals, animal print – all these look fabulous against a tropical pattern. I am looking forward to see what comes next within the ongoing Mega Green Trend. G,x
