All the rage at the moment are those bold tropical prints that have been all over the fashion catwalks. Why not incorporate them into your home too? Where better than your outdoor living space to create a tropical oasis vibe.
It’s all about brightening up your space with graphic prints, vibrant hues and geometric designs. Give your outdoor area a playful summer vibe with these stylish cushions. Want to mix prints? Sticking to a tight colour palette of similar tones is the key to pulling off this look.
