If you don’t want to cover an entire large room with the vibrant print of tropical leaves, try it out in a powder room.  A smaller space is the perfect place to start when considering bringing this lively pattern to your home.  Papering the upper portion and using a chair rail to border the walls of the powder room is a lively but distinguished look.

Highlighting just one wall or section of wall with a pattern of the tropics gives the room a lively summery boost.  Wallpaper or panels can be installed for this look.  Add splashes of contrasting color for a fresh and vibrant summer room.

Play with mixing patterns of wallpaper and fabric for a completely eclectic look.  Add bright accents to the room to break up the pattern and color.  A white ceiling and trim keeps the room from being overpowered, as does the wood flooring.
