Design that gets to the point

With Summer in Ireland typically lasting for a sunny weekend at some point in May or June, it’s no surprise we want to inject a little more light into our lives.

Enter the tropical home trend – it’s the one time a year it’s acceptable to don flamingos, pineapples and other assorted summery items throughout your home.

However, there’s one mainstay – the cactus. Succulents in general have been a developing trend for years, inviting us to grow the prickled-plants within our home.

Not all of us are so greenfingered, though, so thankfully some of our favourite high street and home decor stop-offs are providing us with cacti we can keep all year long.

From soft furnishings lightly adorning couches and beds, to bigger wall features and rugs, there’s something cacti for you for your home, no matter what you’re looking for.


Tiger Stores cactus pillows, €6 each

Urban Outfitters ‘Can’t Touch This’ mug, €12


Rex London cacti tea-light candles, €5.95


New Look Cactus bedspread, available from ASOS €38.70
