If you prefer a more subtle vibe, introduce the jungle patterns into your interior through soft furnishings. Adding some botanical prints into neutral toned interiors is an effortless way to incorporate this trend. With the more subtle designs, it is best to choose lighting that isn’t too much of statement but adds an element of elegance to the room. Sconce lights are sophisticated and stylish; therefore, they are an excellent addition to a neutral space.

For the minimalistic interiors, this is perfect for adding a pop of colour. To ensure that the plants are in the spotlight, you don’t want to overcrowd the room with colours. To achieve the perfect blend of vibrancy and modesty, include neutral toned lighting. Colours such as brass and pewter work perfectly to add elegance but also something a little different to a space. As these colours are subtle, they don’t take any attention away from the key features in the room.
As well as looking great, plants help to create a calming atmosphere, so they’re a brilliant addition in restaurants, offices and other commercial spaces. They are useful in offices as they will help employees feel at ease while at work and reduce their stress levels. In restaurants and cafes, not only do you want visitors to enjoy their food, you want them to feel comfortable and love their experience, so that they will return! Plants offer just that – they make you feel cosy and relaxed – the perfect combination for any dining experience.
The way you design your interior can have a direct impact on your mood. It is scientifically proven that different colours have different effects on how they make you feel. Likewise, plants have been known to have a positive influence on stress levels and wellbeing. Including plants in an interior allows you to feel connected to nature and therefore, calm and relaxed. Flowers are also a great way to bring the outside in, adding some colour and they look aesthetically pleasing!
Floral walls are all the rage at the moments and often bring in customers because they like to take photos with them - Instagrammers especially enjoy these pretty features. Having a feature wall in your restaurant or café could increase your business as more people will want to visit to see the beautiful flowers.
With the tropical theme, it is essential to accessorise the room with the right colours. You want the room to blend nicely, so use golden hues with the greens and whites to create the perfect mix. You could include the golden tones in cushions, throws, lighting and plant pots to give a luxurious addition. Vintage wall lights add some style to the space, and brass tones enhance the richness of the room. The golden toned plant pots are a subtle way of ensuring the theme merges throughout the interior.
