This Easy Tropical Design Trick Is Trending on Pinterest
It doesn’t get any simpler than this.
April showers may bring May flowers—but this year, you might want to save your vases for vacation-inspired greens. So says a new spring trend report from Pinterest, which saw a 136-percent spike in saves for “single palm leaf.”
Palm leaves are a longtime staple in tropical décor, serving as inspiration for everything from wallpaper to upholstery prints. And while those certainly provide instant beach vibe boosters, those less inclined to commit to a bold pattern can liven up their décor simply and swiftly with statement-making fronds.
The best part about palm leaves as décor is that you don’t need a bunch to create an eye-catching display. A single sculptural stem can give a room height, double as artwork, and provide a soothing pop of green to any room.
