This week has been so wet and miserable so far, I make no excuses for indulging in a flight of fancy. I’ve made some concrete plans too, by booking a holiday. Yayy! Not to the tropics I fear, but at least somewhere warmer than the UK. Until then, I’m going to weave dreams around the Hot Tropics range at House of Fraser. New for Spring/Summer 2018 and continuing with the tropical trend of recent years, HOF have teamed all over palm prints with bright punchy colours and accents of gold. The beauty of these products is they will brighten up the home now, and come summer will migrate happily to the patio. Pina Colada anyone?
Jakki Pay, design director of fashion & home at House of Fraser, says: ‘I love tropical prints – there’s really no better way to create that summer party mood, and this season there are some brilliantly bold ones to choose from. Palm motifs are always popular and our in-house design team has scaled them up to create some really striking abstract prints. Pick out vibrant pinks and blues and you’ve created a tropical paradise in your back garden.’
