An interior style reimagined by Ralph Lauren, as well as on the catwalk by the likes of Prada and Marc Jacobs, tropical-inspired pieces can range from the uber-kitsch - we're talking parrots and lots of colours - to chic muted browns with a hint of pastels.
If you're not quite ready to go the whole hog, then take inspiration from safari colours. Jazz a white sofa up with green-leaf patterned cushions, or finish a room with a subtle rug and a few bamboo touches.
