Greenery might have been the Pantone colour of 2017, but who would have thought this ‘greenery’ trend would turn into a warm wave of tropical decoration, bringing vibrancy to all areas of our homes in 2019?

Let’s be fair it’s in every glossy magazine at the moment, Palm tree wallpaper; retro jungle bedding; even vases decorated with banana leaf motifs.  Ever since Sanderson launched a great retro style wallpaper a little while ago, designers and home owners alike are just loving the vibrant greenery and tropical vibe this style of décor introduces to a space.

Iconic wallpaper brand Cole and Son also reintroduced a bit of 1950’s Miami glamour with their palm jungle wallpaper. A colourful bold design guaranteed to add some drama to a scheme. Fortunately, now with the wide range of cushions and accessories available in this theme, it really is easy to introduce this vibe to most rooms in your home.

The living room, bedroom and even hallway all seem fairly obvious canvases for this decorative style, but how do you bring a playful tropical vibe into a bathroom? Well, until recently, I would have said with the use of a carefully selected collection of plain tiles and some statement wallpaper. However, having seen a number of bathrooms that have embraced this approach, it really can work! A word of caution however as wallpapers are not the perfect solution for a high moisture area of the home as you can imagine.


This great cloakroom featured online in the ‘better decorating bible’ is one perfect example……..

 As is this bathroom, accessorised to great effect with towels and plants that introduce this luscious theme as featured in ‘the home design school’

 Not wanting to miss a charismatic decorative trend, we the design team at Baked Tiles are also delighted to introduce our tropical decors from our Tuscany range. A textural rich glaze covers a playful tropical décor that can be used to great effect in the bathroom or home spa.


 Here are a few examples of what our customers have been doing with the range!
