With grey skies looming over the UK for most of the year, it’s easy to dream of those more tropical climates, hence the Urban Jungle trend becoming a firm favourite amongst interior fanatics and homeowners alike. From lush foliage to botanical prints, there’s an opportunity to create oasis-like rooms filled with jungle references or a more luxe approach with the subtle use of colour, natural materials and quirky accessories. Both of which help to bring an essence of relaxation to rooms and personal style. If you didn’t see it already (shameless plug alert), you can see I commented on the style for Elle Decoration a little earlier this week!
In the bedroom specifically, the Urban Jungle trend can be luxurious and chic with sophisticated and rich colours combined with nature-inspired details. While light-filled spaces are the perfect accompaniment to any real plants in the abode, dark colours are the perfect sidekick to the jungle greens that are normally associated with exotic interior accessories such as patterned bedsheets. Mixing materials such as linens, silks and velvet can help to keep the trend long-lasting and relevant to your own personality.
I personally delve more towards the “go big or go home” approach as shown in my picks below but of course, you can easily adapt as you wish with the subtle integration of just a print, or two, or three, or four. Don’t even get me started on the urban jungle cushions.
