Leaf String Lights, £4.50, Primark

The bold Monstera leaf lights are just the thing to add a tropical touch to our homes, without going OTT with the bold tropicana look. Draped over a mirror they provide just enough of a tropical touch, to illuminate an existing decor.

The official name is Monstera deliciosa. A species of flowering plant native to tropical forests of southern Mexico. Most commonly know to you and I as the Swiss Cheese plant, a fashionable large leaf plant that was oh-so-popular in the 70's.

As we see a retro resurgence the cheese plant is once again the height of fashion.
