Palm prints have long held the spotlight in design. Who can forget the banana leaf reign of the mid-2000s and how it seemingly graced the walls of every hotel, bar, and home imaginable? Since then, we’ve embraced various riffs on the print, segueing to botanical- or tropical-inspired motifs. Given our affinity with greens, this should hardly come as a surprise.

While it seems as if we’ve seen nearly every rendition of the palm print to date, we’ve noticed a new alternative: jungle prints. Saturated with color and intricate patterns, consider these fresh picks to be the elevated version of the basic palm.

From the geometric and abstract to the abundantly colored and everything in between, the wallpaper patterns ahead will inspire you to take a walk on the wild side.
