Plants on Pink

What is it about palm trees, cactuses, and dusty pink twilight skies? It feels like these images are everywhere in Interiors right now - and we can't get enough. Whether it's photographic prints, paintings or bold, abstract takes on the theme, they keep popping up - even on last year's Block. Get inspired with our own stunning range....

Courtney and Hans Guest Bedroom Art on The Block by Kate Mayes from The Block Shop

Darren Palmer was a particular fan of this Kate Mayes artwork, 'Who Needs Sleep,' which was chosen by Courtney to match the other muted hues she used in their room. “Palms against pink is actually a fashion trend in interiors and they have an interpretation of [that], and I think that’s really clever,” Darren said at the time.

We love, lovedy LOVE love everything about this 'Palm Leaves' wallpaper, which Shelley Craft used in her recent Byron garden studio renovation. It also popped up in Bianca and Carla's main bathroom in the Challenge Apartment last year. Perhaps that's where Shel got the idea from?
