We have done a significant amount of research on decor trends for 2014. Our team have searched, analysed, discussed and forecasted. In our #TrendsIssue94 we present you with our report on the top 20 trends for this year. But there are more! Tropicali for instance. We’re mad for a little tropical heat in the home.

Tropical decor gives the home a feel of the islands: a feeling of relaxation, of exuberance and good living.  To get the  look, choose furniture that can weather both indoor or outdoor environments, and look for natural materials such as rattan, jute, wicker and bamboo. Spice up your decor by recreating the palettes found in tropical foliage and exotic flowers with bright greens, bright reds, corals, russet, orange and yellows, as well as shades of green beige, khaki and mocha.

Decorate with floral and bold patterns that reflect lush vegetation; palm trees, fern fronds, and banana leaves.  Success with bold and busy patterned wallpaper and textiles is easier to achieve when you keep the rest of the room understated with neutral walls and  floors.
