Palm Passion

In addition to boat canvas canopies, wide-brimmed straw hats and outdoor umbrellas there’s the palm, in its endless variations and staggering heights. Looked to in the islands for protection from the sun and storms, palm fronds are also often used as decoration in our home. This summer more than a handful of designers turned to the tropical trimmings for inspiration. Below I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite interpretations.

2. Oscar De La Renta Gold Tone & Swarvoski Crystal Leaf Drop Earrings ($255.00)
