ISLAND INTERIORS: Palms, Parrots and Pineapples
Manifest your desire of experiencing the Island with a selection of dreamy tropical finds.
The trend for all things reminiscent of sun drenched shores offers an instant high if natural Vitamin D isn’t accessible and elevates not only your mood but your space.
Palms originally were bought over with the Phoenicians and were revered not only for their fruit bearing gifts but their majestic limbs that looked towards the heavens. Now they are part of the horizon painting a mystical silhouette of what a modern day Eden may look like.
Their beauty can be indulged within your home with a selection of Palm tree themed decors, everything from wallpaper, cushions and candlestick holders.
Palm Beach Cool
Continuing the tropical theme are décor details with Parrots and Pineapples. No need to stop reading at this point for fear of a MTV summer break neon cocktail fuelled party, these pieces are seriously chic with just the right side of kitsch.
Place these pieces with earthy tones and organic rattan and bamboo for a more subtle mix.
Owned and styled by interior designer, Caroline Le Grand, Can Mimosa epitomises Palm Beach Cool. The wavy banana leaf wallpaper is too lush not to mention here, the pattern known as Martinique has iconic status due to its place in the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Palms of all shapes and sizes adorn the gardens here cocooning you with their languid leaves. Hidden deep in the campo its proximity to the bohemian village of Santa Gertrudis is a revelation. Stock up on local organic produce, browse through exquisite artisans shops or stop for a roof top cocktail at Gatzara, before heading back laden with goodies to your secluded villa.
