I’m feeling very inspired today by this stunning new wallpaper design from Timorous Beasties. For anyone who is into the totally tropical trend at the moment (me,me,me) this wallpaper will be the ultimate verdant, green, living wall of delicious trailing leaves, exotic blooms and steamy jungle vibes. In order to appreciate it fully I’d love to see it used in the hallway and up the stairs – like the beanstalk Jack planted – so that you are compelled to follow and see where it leads.
And then, depending on what colourway is chosen I’d add leather, copper, brass, black rattan and yet more plants. This is not a wallpaper for the shy and retiring, so go bold with a metallic console table, pineapple motifs (no, they’re not totally over yet), palm trees and green ferns. Pile it on. Layer it. And revel in your own intrepid spirit. Then add brass ants.
