Botanical fabrics and island-inspired prints are not just for tropical vacation homes. When mixed with neutral textures, tailored stripes, and grounding solids, they add a bold and striking pop of intrigue to any space.
This mix, featured in the inviting (and modern) bedroom above, pulls three iconic Scalamandré fabrics into the same space. If you’re not afraid of pattern, this mix is for you. The juxtaposition of the tropical print with the bed’s modern silhouette results in a vacation-inspired room that’s anything but your grandmother’s Florida condominium. The throw pillow in Henna Cheetah speaks to the orange in the Lanai print, and the Tan Baldwin Bamboo ottoman adds a sophisticated dash of island flair (while complementing the blue bamboo shapes in the Lanai).
If you’re looking for a mix that’s a bit less traditional, pair the Lapis Lanai with a plush Coral Velvet and a textured Husk Linen. The variety of materials will leave you with a look that’s layered and rich. Add a considered and colorful geometric like Christene Barberich’s midcentury-inspired Pink Blocks for an element of surprise. Every room needs one.
The best thing about a multi-colored print like the Lapis Lanai? Its sophisticated palate allows you to layer it with both warm oranges and cool greys. This moodier mix includes a soothing velvet, a tailored grey stripe, and Scalamandre’s Baldwin Bamboo in a sharp slate.
