Go Flamingo!May 2016
Flamingos…bright, fun and bold birds from the tropical climates are one of the most famous bird silhouettes. Coming a long way from being used as retro garden ornaments, the flamingo design trend is gaining popularity amongst fashion and interiors…
Screens and panels are great for adopting this tropical trend, by using a richer colour palette the flamboyant bird can be showcased in a sophisticated, elegant way. This image below makes for a fabulous feature wall or focal point.
Monochrome design is a must have trend for 2016 so why not incorporate two design trends in one and opt for a monochrome flamingo wallpaper or wall art?
It’s clear to see this beautiful bird can be seen not just on textiles and wallcoverings but on every day essentials too. So raise a glass to these fantastic quirky tumblers, complete with matching drinks tray…it’s enough to get the summer started!
This flamingo print wallpaper is fun, great for a child’s bedroom or nursery and will freshen up any space. Cole & Son have an admirable collection of flamingo and tropical wallpaper prints to compliment this growing trend.
Mix it up with pineapple…these fruity prints are rapidly growing on trend and we will be seeing a lot more of them! There’s no better way than to add an exotic fruit with an exotic animal!
With many different prints, patterns, embellishments and styles, cushions are a playful accent for a tropical inspired palette.
We absolutely love this wallpaper by Arte! The gold flamingos make an interesting but wonderful take on this flamingo design trend.

Smaller accessories like cutlery and table wear are a brilliant idea to keep the theme without taking up too much space like these upcycled bird plates!
We love this polka dot dinner set with gold accents and cutlery, complete with a quirky flamingo illustration.
