My recent trip to Honolulu rekindled my passion for palm prints. After being on Oahu a couple days I started to embrace, “The louder a man’s Hawaiian shirt, the better.” I went out and bought Geoff a really loud tropical print to wear to dinner on Waikiki and he was all in. The right amount of island foliage signals summer has arrived. Here are some options that offer a pop of palm leaves to your outfit and home.
Palm Wonderful: Palm Leaf Prints That Say Summer is Here
Attire// Active Wear: The leggings I have on above are actually from Forever21, but similar below:
Attire//Dresses: These make a statement with pattern and rich color. I am in love with the printed Kimono dress.
Shoes: If wearing a full-on leaf pattern is too much, pop your outfit with a pair of patterned heels or summery flats.
For The Home: I have some palms strategically placed throughout the house (like the pitcher below) as a way to channel island calm (how’s that island calm working for you with two toddler boys, Chels?). This pitcher also reminds me of Charleston and its islands we visit at least twice a year. I couldn’t find a similar pitcher but this palm white catch-all is a similar display piece.
Pillows: These banana palm pillows are classic and reminiscent of the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel. Use this pillow in any room to add a touch of bohemian chic.
Wall paper: An island accent wall is a fun touch for a guest bedroom, three-season room or half bath. This CB2 wallpaper is a great option and wouldn’t overpower a room if used sparingly.
And below are some other fun island inspired finds I came across while hunting for the perfect palm prints. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and cheers to the beginning of summer! Chelsea
