Editor’s pick: Get the safari look
The tropical trend for spring and summer has bred a new take on the safari look for your home. Are you brave enough to get the look? Asks Jarrold editor Emma Harrowing.
Along with spring’s love of bringing plants and greenery into your home, the tropical vibe has extended to the animals in the jungle. Lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, zebras, rhinos and monkeys are on everything from vases and cushions, to mugs and coat hooks.
The look offers a style for your home that has more bite than the flouncy, pretty flamingo trend of the past few years (which, incidentally, is still going strong). Wood, ceramic, cast iron and metal creates a more pared down monochrome neutral tone against the backdrop of green, instead of the brashness of bright colour. Create a statement by placing a set of three vases or ornaments together, or pick one item to bring a subtle element of surprise to a room.
