Lately, we’ve been drawn to interiors that are filled with charming clusters of greenery--but not the kind that need maintenance. Palm tree and tropical leaf prints are having a moment, but they’re more sophisticated than when they first appeared as a kitsch room accent in the 1950s. Today we skip the rattan and instead mix leafy patterns with velvet, polished metals and bright colors. Here’s how to use leafy prints in your home.


Covering just one wall can bring the warmth. Try this classic banana leaf Martinique wallpaper, which is the height of sophistication, or Aimée Wilder’s Deliciosa print, which comes in nine colors combinations.



For maximum impact, consider covering a large piece of furniture in a statement fabric, as decorator Celerie Kemble did in this sunny living room.



The jewel tones in this room are pepped up by the poppy printed curtains.



Just a single pop of leaf print might look random--so splash it over a chair and ottoman, too.



While you’re at it, commit to a pink-and-green color combo for maximum preppie impact.



If you’re lucky enough to have an outdoor space for lounging, indulge in some wicker upholstered in a palm-frond-and-fern print.
