I know it's been a long time coming, but I just saw this as an opportunity to slowly make my way back into blogging or casual blogging as I call it. So you don't understand how excited I was to receive an email from Laurel & Wolf asking me if I was interested in showing how I would set up the newest trend of banana/palm leaf print. It took a while (I'm a bit rusty) however I put together something I felt represented my first thought of this fun pattern...retro!

This pattern really lets you explore your wild side and not just with color, but with patterns too. I first found the pillow though after putting together a "room" I didn't feel a pillow alone did it any justice. I thought outside of the box and went for a retro funky feel with the pattern and brought it up to the wall. From there I pulled colors from the print to bring together the accessories. By going with this style I feel I can represent the print in multipule pieces within the room without it seeming like too much.
Hope you all like what I put together and become inspired to add this retro pattern into your design plans!
