Turn up the Heat with Exotic Carnival Trends: Rio

The 2016 Olympics is upon us, taking place in the most vivacious and energetic city in the world – Rio de Janeiro. With its carnival spirit of eclectic flair, excitement, energy and colour, it’s no wonder that this style has been captured by the fashion and interior world alike.

The Brazilian spirit symbolises flamboyancy, jungle prints and tropical colours, with a vibrant array of textiles and fabrics. Carnival interiors are on trend, with eccentric prints and tropical colours taking over.

Tropical prints

Exuberant tropical prints are a must. Go all out with an exotic Brazilian look, with bursts of contrasting colour, including Burnt Orange, Turmeric and Fuschia. Double up on contrasting prints, shapes and patterns for that extra zest of flamboyancy. 


For a safe yet stylish option, mix tropical prints with naturally coinciding hues. For example, alongside our Tropics Verde add a touch of green or a crisp white, or place against a darker hue wall to create a strong statement without feeling overwhelming.


Pops of Rio brights

Exotic carnival colours are bursting onto the scene and are a great way to add vibrancy and visual interest into a space. Inspire customers; think hot pink, vivid yellow, bursts of blue and zesty green.

Feature panels or walls are a massive trend this season, with blinds and curtains also being used as statement pieces; introduce these alongside fresh whites or neutral interiors to inject some colour, creating a show-stopping atmosphere.

Be classic or be exuberant with a taste of tropical!
