A grand greeting, this lively entryway welcomes guests into the home with a sea of green palms. The raw wood entry table holds centerstage, while doubling as a clever gathering space with wicker stools. A pale green and blue striped area rug ground the space in breezy shades.
Black-and-white palms give this bathroom a taste of the tropics with a graphic edge. The glossy black double vanity is clad in chunky marble tops for a note of glamour, and a large walk-in shower is a soothing sanctuary with a built-in bench, rainfall showerhead and handheld shower.
The navy-and-white wallpaper in this bar area gives a sophisticated, subtle hint of palms to the space. Crisp white cabinetry combines with soft gray countertops, where a hammered sink adds distinct texture to the setting. Upper glass cabinets allow the monogrammed glassware to be on display.
Blending indoor and outdoor design perfectly, this open and spacious living space is lined in brightly green wallpaper. Natural wood beams add architectural detail to the ceiling and are mimicked in the rattan armchairs. Retractable doors open up the walls so that the space flows seamlessly with the waterway beyond.
Say Yes to Metallics
Golden palm-tree wallpaper creates a striking juxtaposition with the black-and-white geometric tile. To make the most of the petite bathroom, a wall-mounted half-sink takes up little space. Wicker accessories boost the texture in the room.
Bring a little tropical love into even your youngest's space. Brilliant green palm leaves decorate the wall behind the contemporary white crib. Accents of black and white with touches of natural wood keep the palette simple and uncluttered.
Abundance of Hues
Palms, birds-of-paradise and other tropical flora mix together in shades of green, pink and yellow to fill this living space with energetic color. An acrylic bar cart houses all the cocktail essentials without bringing additional visual weight to the space.
Rock the Fronds
Simple moldings create wainscoting under the palm frond wallpaper in this delightfully eclectic dining room. Centered in the room is a primitive wood table paired with black horseshoe chairs and a mid-century modern chandelier overhead.
Making a bold statement in this bedroom is the vivid palm-leaf wallpaper with rich greens set on a black backdrop. Salmon and buffalo check pillows establish color and pattern on the woven headboard and bright white bedding. Matte brass table lamps pick up the hint of metallic on the round mirror over the bed.
This oh-so-bohemian nursery adds just a dash of palm with a fun pillow that sits in the Eames-style rocker. Vibrant colors, from the crib sheets and painting to the Kelly-green bookshelf, build up the brightness to the mostly neutral setting.
Sitting in the Leaves
For a dynamic touch in this entryway, the traditional bench is covered in palm-leaf upholstery. The buttoned back of the bench is hung on ring hooks for a fun, eclectic note, while a flock of black and brass birds bring dimension to the wall. The diamond-pattern floor in taupe and white deliver a geometric design underfoot.
Into the Jungle
Taking a walk on the wild side, this earthy green master bedroom is surrounded in floral-and-palm wallpaper. Velvet sage green bedding pairs with cheetah-print pillows, all on a glossy black bed that's trimmed in gold. Large oval mirrors flank the bed to bounce natural light from the windows around the room and illuminated the deep hues.
Strike a Pose
Hollywood glam meets a day in the tropics in this grand contemporary bedroom. Radiant white furniture is detailed in black for a chic contrast, while a soft green rug boasts a splash of color underneath. The sleek four-poster bed conveys a minimalist moment in the pattern-filled room.
Luminous green palm fronds pop off the wallpaper's midnight background in this bathroom. Organic elements, from the woven pendant to the floating wooden vanity and stone basin, transport nature into the space.
Touch of the Tropics
If you're not obsessed with palms, but want to play with the trend, incorporate them in an easy-to-switch out accessory. Add a few fronds to a tall glass vase in the center of your dining table or coffee table and when you're on to the next thing, trade them out.
