Go all in! Yep, you heard me. Use it everywhere. Just like we did in this home office/music room. There's no getting around it. These palm leaves are meant to be seen. (This is your sneak peek! We haven't even put this in our portfolio yet!)

Only use it a little but use the color palette. This bright floral is a favorite but it would've been too much all over the place. So we paired it with a geometric wallpaper in the same navy color palette and it works as an accent. (The wallpaper isn't exactly subtle.)
