Hey winter, are you done yet? I'm so over you! How about we lighten the mood in New York by moving on to something that conjures up warmth, sunshine and the beach... something that has made me excited for Spring and Summer and VACATIONS! I wrote about the Martinique Wallpaper a few months ago, but recently I've had an obsession with the real thing - yes real live palm trees. They're gorgeous, bold, seductive and make me long for visits to warmer climates. One night I just binged on palm tree decorated interiors on my Pinterest feed (sparing my followers by pinning to secret boards), but still pinning almost anything and everything palms. Then I finally decided to move on to something a little more productive, like planning my next vacation. I'm that we'll be seeing palm trees in their native environments, very soon, wherever we end up.
All longing aside, palm trees and palm leaves are really having a moment, and it's not just the Martinique pattern by Hinson or the The Brazilliance print by Dorothy Draper. They're the next big house plant after the Fiddle head fig plants and they're also being interpreted chicly in many different wallpapers and fabrics. A new favorite around the decor world has to be the Cole & Son Palm Jungle. Used in many colors ways, it works in bathrooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and even large event spaces, like the gorgeous Brooklyn venue 501 Union. 501 Union also happened to recently host a beautiful wedding with tropical inspired arrangements, featuring palm leaves designed by Putnam & Putnam. Other beautiful palm decor elements in vogue are brass sculptural palms, some of which are light fixtures, all of which, gorgeous.
All I can say is I want, I want, I want... I want more space so I can wallpaper some walls with palm papers, I want brass palm tree sculptures, I want palm tree arrangements and most importantly a palm tree plant! What do you think, are you all feeling the palm movement?
