Now that summer's in full swing, I'm all about prints when it comes to upcoming design projects and my own wardrobe. And nothing conveys the laid back vibe of summer as perfectly as a tropical banana palm leaf print!
You saw it pop up everywhere last summer - from iPhone cases to espadrilles - and this bold print is back and more chic than ever. The iconic print comes in two main patterns that have inspired the evolution of the print over the years. The first is the classic Martinique, with a variety of green tones and larger, full leaf print that was made popular when it was first installed in the Beverly Hills Hotel. The second famous pattern, the Brazilliance is also gorgeous option, with more monochromatic green hues and smaller floral accents that make it ideal for wallpaper, home accents and dresses alike. Either way, you can't go wrong with a palm leaf pattern fabric or wallpaper!
I know that I will never tire of this tropical style in the home or my wardrobe, so I rounded up a few products and decor inspirations I adore to showcase my favorite ways to style this gorgeous print!
From top to bottom:
From living room decor to chic accessories, banana leaf prints always make for an iconic and memorable look. When styling it in your own home, always make sure to mix the print with other bright colors (hot pinks, corals and reds are a favorite combination of mine!) or other bold prints to keep the look bold and daring.
Happen to have any banana leaf prints in your home or closet? I'd love to hear about your favorites!
