Hold on to your [panama] hats there's a tropical trend coming on! Perhaps it's counterpoint to all the grey and black we're seeing in the interior design mags (see 'grey' blog post last week). There's also a lot of saturated jewel colours in the fashion press and retail outlets for summer. Summing this up perfectly is an image from a recent Steven Meisel/Vogue shoot...

The above image features the classic wallpaper design called Martinique which has graced a number of famous interiors over the decades.

For fun I thought I'd check out our products for all things tropical...

Of course the obvious place to start is Paradise, Arte's new wallcoverings and fabric collection. It's a striking celebration of verdant foliage, rich colours and textures...
