Picture this: Night has fallen on a tropical paradise and you can’t help but notice the slight shine to the leaves of a nearby rubber tree and the unmistakable shapes of monstera leaves peeking through the darkness. What if you could bring this serene outdoor scene indoors (minus the mosquitoes and humidity)?


Overview

This week, we’d like you to explore the greenery of the tropical landscape through a shadowy lens. This sophisticated moody trend for home decor is perfect for wallpaper or bedding in a room that you’d like to transform into a nocturnal paradise escape!

This challenge will be previewed on a roll of wallpaper so think big and don’t forget to also check out our top tips for creating large scale designs for wallpaper.
