Tropical prints in your home

ADD A TOUCH OF THE TROPICS TO YOUR HOME FOR SUMMER


I'm excited to be writing my first home post :) I love interior design, and I think by adding a touch of the tropics to your home for summer with beautiful tropical prints is a great way to get started.  From large houseplants to the more tropical and exotic, this trend can easily be brought into your wardrobe or home.  Use these prints in your rooms, from accent walls to covering the entire space.  If you want to try this trend, but just don't want to commit to wearing it, you can always freshen up your home decor with a few tropical printed pieces.

Tropical plants paired with white decor is really distinctive and can transform your room into an exotic paradise. By adding real, live plants into your home you will create a better atmosphere and add rich colour. 


Add some summery colour to your living room with this palm print cushion or canvas tropical leaf prints, are a perfect way to update a room and make it feel more current without spending a lot of money.


For maximum impact, consider covering a large piece of furniture in a statement fabric, like a couch or carpet.  If you aren’t feeling too daring, accessorise with bowls of exotic fruit or incorporate large fake flowers can add a touch of the tropics without the commitment.

Printed shorts for Summer

                                                    OUTFIT STYLING


Today I’m styling printed shorts. I’m usually a solids kind of girl, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up with a print.  Printed and patterned shorts are simply fun and wearing solid colour shorts is easy – all you need is a cute top and a nice pair of sandals. 

For a safe yet stylish look, wear a tank top or crop top with your printed shorts. A white, black, or beige top are perfect choices, although picking any of the colours in your shorts will work as well.

If you want a simple choice when it comes to what to wear with printed shorts, then your best response is the white tee. A truly timeless classic, it can provide the simple elegance that you are looking for.  What’s great about a white tee and printed shorts combination is that you can go crazy with the accessories!

A crisp white button-down shirt. This traditional fashion staple works with a lot of items – so it’s sure to look stunning with a pair of printed shorts. For best results, wear it with classic jewels, anFor the fall you can wear a pair of tights under your printed shorts.  They perfect for every season.

Part of the Band T-shirt styling

OUTFIT STYLING

The Beatles (which I totally love), Led Zeppelin, Guns and Roses, RHCP, Ramones… and I could go on forever. This trend was huge in the 90s and the good thing is, that it is still trendy now and it can work perfectly well with a blazer.  Dress it up, dress it down, you can put a skirt with it, you can wear leggings with it, you can put a shirt under it, you can put a jacket over it, doesn’t really matter.

The more washed and distressed, the better. And if you’re lucky enough to find an old band tour shirt in your parents closet, you struck gold. Nothing screams rock chic more than a graphic top with your favourite band emblazoned across the front, but nothing can scream groupie more too. 


The aim is an effortless grunge vibe that can dress down even the smartest ensembles.  How can we say no to an Iron Maiden or Ramones tee when it looks so cool against tons of feminine statement blings, high heels and pencil skirts or skinny trousers?
