Tropical Interiors

Images: Pinterest
It's that time of year when the weather is heating up (or supposed to be), and my lack of outside space (read: none) makes me dream of tropical spaces and rooms filled with foliage, bringing the outside in. Obviously, I love a cactus as much as the next lady but bringing green in through colour is ticking even more boxes for me, currently. It is kind of ironic, really, that my great grandmother would never allow anything green inside her house due to superstition! 

Through Laura from WITBlog's green tablescapes (yes, that is a word) to Erica Davies' recent house renovations, I'm moving more and more towards colour, finally. And the great thing about green is it's pretty much a neutral (you can tell I work in fashion) - it seems to fit seamlessly into my already grey home. I even chose a green marble coffee table for our living room over the classic white (which I based around the ones from Modern Society store on instagram):
